The Court cocktail bar in Rome

The Court cocktail bar in Rome

 

Favouring Fermanagh  

The northern county has lots to offer visitors this summer, from the Music By The Shore Festival (August 9th to 11th), to the Summer Music Sessions at Castlecoole. For a great family day out, look to Florence Court in Enniskillen. There are guided house tours to bike hire, kitchen garden activities, pond-dipping kits, and even a honey show.

Spa day 

Killashee Hotel, just 40 minutes’ drive from Dublin in the heart of Kildare Stud farmland, has two new spa packages. Treat yourself to their Midweek overnight pamper package for €169 per person, with afternoon tea, breakfast and a menu of spa treats, or put on your out of office for their midweek day escape. From €129 per person, enjoy a muscle-melting back massage, rehydrating booster facial, and their exotic body exfoliation.

Aperitivo with a view 

The most sensational place to enjoy an Aperol spritz this summer comes by way of Rome’s newest cocktail bar. The Court at the Palazzo Manfredi hotel boasts unparalleled views of the Colosseum and the Ludus Magnus, the ruins of the most important school of gladiators in the empire.
Sample the carefully curated cocktail menu by world-renowned mixologist Matteo Zed and nibble on aperitivo-sized bites from the one-Michelin Star Aroma Restaurant, all while taking in views of the Eternal City. Simply bellissimo.
