Easter Sunday my bestie and I ventured off to the North, County Donegal to be exact. Whenever she comes up we like to explore around Sligo a bit for a few hours. This time it was Donegal town and surrounding areas. We had a stroll on the beach first because the weather, for a change, was decent enough. The sun was shining anyway.
With a possible wedding venue,
which is now out of the question for several reasons, we drove to Harvey’s Point which is a well known 4 star hotel, most popular for its location. It’s right along a lake.From the outside it looks like a normal hotel but once you enter the hotel, it’s more like a castle. There are so many different doors, you could get lost.
Sunday was good timing to go up because they had carvery on in the restaurant. In fact it was a 4 course lunch menu. We could stuff our faces. The menu was unreal. First of we had homemade vegetable soup. We couldn’t figure out whether it was the spices or a vegetable that made it a bit spicy but other than that the soup was nice.
Then you had the option of many different starters. These were served as a buffet. Basically you can eat as much as you want really. For the price of €35 for the whole course I don’t think that’s bad at all. On a normal Sunday it’s actually €30. The starter was prawn cocktail, different types of salads, fish vol au vent. bruschetta and garlic bread and much more. As you can see a variety of food.
You could honestly skip the main course and just eat off the starters and desserts.
For the main course I had salmon, Karo had turkey and ham. Very tasty.
We had to gather ourselves first after eating so much food but as they say “there is always space for dessert”. I have a very sweet tooth. We pay for what eat so I tried to have a bit of everything.
The lemon meringue tart and chocolate mousse was the nicest. It was really fresh but I also tried some coffee cake, profiteroles, cheesecake (which wasn’t that nice) and a brownie. They also had ice cream and made crepes in front of you. I didn’t have that though because I was so stuffed from the brownie cake.
Once we finished our desserts, tea and paid we went out the back and took a few photos of the lake side and explored the hotel a bit more.
Then it was time to go back home and go back to cuddling and playing with the kids.
