The weekend of June 20 and 21 brought the first Fermanagh Food Festival. This excited me, more than it should have because I am used to attending similar events all over Northern Ireland. However, this is a first for Fermanagh! It’s great to see Fermanagh hosting a large event, and I hope that it becomes a regular occurrence.
I find that afternoon tea is the one time in my life I get to properly feel sophisticated. Maybe it’s the dainty sandwiches, or drinking from a tea cup. I get to feel a more refined human being for an hour or two.
When at home in Fermanagh, the Lough Erne is always my first choice for afternoon tea. I’ve always found a homely element to this hotel (there’s always a turf fire burning), not to mention it’s beautiful grounds. I was delighted when my cousin offered to take my Grandmother and myself there one afternoon.
