Weather was mild, Harvey's Point hotel was warm with turf fires in the bar, lobby, restaurant and residents' lounge, the staff combined well trained professionalism with natural friendliness. Food was superb and the free cookery demo and wine tasting interesting and informative. Views of lough Eske evocative, sometimes the low angle wimter sunrise, or mist swirling. Walking in the Bluestacks...
