Harvey’s Point Hotel at Lough Eske, Donegal, has announced the appointment of Colin Bradley as Head Chef.
After his culinary qualification at Cathal Brugha College, Dublin, Colin began working in some of the highest profile kitchens in Ireland including the Newpark Hotel in Kilkenny, and the Savoy in London.
After a stint at Jurys Hotel Kensington, his travels took him to the Channel Islands and Head Chef at the highly regarded private club, The Victoria in St. Helier. Famous restaurants like Kitty Kelly’s were a high point and his skills earned it an international reputation. He helped secure a No 1 best Gastro Pub Award for The Thatch in Glenties and he also did a term at the Donegal hotel, The Shandon.
Colin also managed to do an additional degree in advanced pastry at the Catering College in Killybegs.
He joined Harvey’s Point several years ago and learned the ropes under the guidance of Head Chef Chris Mc Menamin and now as fate decrees, he is returning in that very same role.
Colin Bradley said: “I always want to be the best I can and at Harvey’s Point the reputation is second to none. That gives me a wonderful opportunity to maintain those amazing standards and indeed to put my particular stamp of excellence in an otherwise impeccable kitchen operation that provides top-class food in every outlet.”
Niall Coffey, General Manager of Harvey’s Point, said: “We welcome him with warmth and a certain excitement as we continue to garner further respect and praise for all we do to ensure visitors and locals alike have a simply unbeatable experience.”
