The Ultimate Dublin Itinerary
All great cities have a distinctive vibe but none more so, perhaps, than Dublin. With a tourist trade based on its famous pub-dominated nightlife, Ireland’s capital has always had a reputation for being a fun, friendly city. But in the last few years Dublin’s star has risen even further. It was recently ranked at 19 by the World’s Best Cities committee – above all British cities bar London – who described it as ‘safe, gregarious and increasingly wealthy’. And of course celebrating St Patrick’s Day at the source is a bucket-list experience – although in Dublin, the festivities last for five days, not just one. For the week around Friday 17th March, Dublin will be even busier, merrier and more entertaining than usual. As is tradition, the St Patrick’s Day parade will kick off in the city centre on the 17th itself and after a two-year break due to the pandemic, this year’s is shaping up to be the biggest ever. New for 2023, the National Museum of Ireland is hosting a ‘day-to-night urban festival’ in the grounds of the Museum of Decorative Arts and History from the 16th to the 20th, with comedy, dance, music and ‘spectacle’. And throughout the city, venues will be entertaining the crowds with a curated programme of events.
Featuring The Valentine's Travel Edit: The Cotswolds
The Cotswolds is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, encompassing almost 800 square miles that run through five counties – Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire, Warwickshire, Wiltshire and Worcestershire. Famed for its honey-stoned bricks, Moreton-in-Marsh is a small market town within the Cotswolds district that we had the wonderful opportunity to stay in on a cold winter weekend this January. As we drove down the country roads, I peered out amongst the centuries-old churches, smart country pubs and chocolate-box villages we passed - I felt almost like a character in a Jane Austen novel. It was an area frozen in time - a pre-industrial revolutionary England; and the bucolic rolling hills and charming antique stores only added to this feeling. So, you can imagine my glee when we finally pulled up outside our little cottage in Moreton-in-Marsh.
The Nobu Philosophy on the Golden Mile
Nobu hotel group has been riding the crest of a wave in recent years. From zen Japanese designs to exquisite cuisine, Nobu has been winning admirers the world over. On the plush 'Golden Mile', Nobu Marbella is a destination in itself. It's a self-contained resort that will satisfy your gastronomy, relaxation and shopping needs. Within the same complex as Puente Romano beach resort, guests luckily share the same world-class facilities, yet Nobu guests also get exclusive access to a Nobu pool area, which coincidentally is the same arrangement as when we visited Nobu Hotel Miami Beach. You will also get priority seating and preferred access to Nobu and La Suite, Marbella’s most exclusive club. If you know how popular both institutions are, you'll appreciate this is a considerable benefit.
Bringing Back Boujis: Get Ready for B London
They’ve hosted rockstars and royalty during their wildest nights out. Now, the team behind Mahiki, Raffles Chelsea, and the once happening Boujis, brings B London to the fold, with a view to capturing the best of old and new. For those unfamiliar with Boujis, the significance of B London’s upcoming launch - geared for March of this year - is rooted heavily in the once popular club which closed in 2016. During its epic run, made memorable by the drove of celebrities passing in and out of its doors, Boujis made headlines for high class drama perpetrated by none other than its clientele. This included Princes William and Harry, commonly caught by paparazzi stumbling from the club in the early hours of the morning. Speaking to veteran nightclub owner and B London partner, Carlo Carello, it’d be remiss of The Sybarite not to enquire about his knowledge of the royals, who are, as expected at this time, a little on the contentious side of public opinion. “To be honest, I’ll be brutal,” he said. “I’d love to stay away from Harry and William right now. There’s too much out there.”
