Seafood Evening @ Harvey’s Point

Deirdre’s Diary

Seafood Evening at Harvey's Point

“World class”, “Superb”, “Delightfully Delicious” – these were just some of the compliments that we received following our Seafood Evening at Harvey’s Point. Over 120 guests enjoyed a sumptuous seafood banquet with live music and dancing in the elegant surrounds of the Ballroom. The Seafood Evening was a celebration of the bounty of the Wild Atlantic Way and the fact that we are blessed to have such fine produce at our doorstep.

Seafood Spectacular…

I had the pleasure of being a guest at this event and it truly was a wonderful experience. Upon entering the Ballroom, we were greeted by our charming Guest Relations Manager, Eamonn, offered a glass of Prosecco and escorted to our table. With the beautiful view of the gentle waters of Lough Eske, and the evening sun setting, it felt like we were on a cruise ship. 

The aroma of freshly cooked fish, garlic and herbs filled the air.  Chris, our Head Chef extended a warm welcome to everyone and the feast began. First up was a smoked haddock velouté served to the table. It tasted rich, creamy and dreamy. Then there was a selection of twenty fish dishes to sample – spanking fresh seafood platters laden with oysters, smoked salmon and prawns, Thai fish curry, seafood vol au vents, breaded mussels, seafood quiche tartlets and much more. The cornets of deep fried fish and perfectly seasoned chips went down a treat.

Colin, our Senior Sous Chef manned the live cooking station, cooking queen scallops poached in garlic butter and prawns in the most amazing chilli, lime and coriander sauce I have ever tasted. In addition, there were ten non seafood dishes to choose from. Guests were invited to return for second and even third helpings.

Meanwhile, the entertainment was provided by the dynamic duo that is Paul & Mary B. It wasn’t long before some couples took to the floor.  As if we hadn’t eaten enough at that stage, we headed to the dessert buffet to partake of another amazing array of food – a superb selection of desserts (all calorie free :-), and a great Irish cheese platter. Somehow I managed to fit in a freshly prepared crepe with vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce!

Congratulations to our dedicated team of chefs, who put their heart and sole (forgive the pun :-), into creating a buffet that would stand up there with the most lavish cruise ships of the world. Service, under the direction of Joanna was five star all the way. Our thanks to Eamonn for all the creative props that really brought the theme of our Seafood Evening to life.

The question asked by many of our guests was, “when is the next themed evening?”

Well, watch this space!
