The Fairmont brand makes tracks for Ireland, recently signing the historic Carton House property, with plans to transform the historic estate by the end of 2020.

Carton House is one of Ireland’s most historic country homes, located 20 minutes from Dublin. The estate dates to 1176, though the current home was built in 1739. When branded as a Fairmont property, it will become the first such property in Ireland, the fourth in the United Kingdom and the oldest Fairmont property worldwide.

When opened, the new Fairmont Carton House will offer 170 guestrooms and suites, wellness facilities, conference and events space and two 18-hole championship golf courses. On-site dining plans include a lobby bar and three restaurants, including a golf club restaurant and specialty eatery.

“Fairmont Carton House will join the ranks of the iconic Savoy in London and Fairmont St. Andrews in Scotland and the recently signed Fairmont Windsor Park, becoming the first Fairmont hotel in Ireland. The Fairmont brand is known for its history and impressive locations and we feel it is the ideal brand under which to bring this iconic, historic hotel into the Accor family,” said Thomas Dubaere, COO, Accor, Northern Europe. “The signing of Fairmont Carton House reflects our expertise in the luxury segment and reinforces our commitment to growing our luxury offering across the United Kingdom and Ireland.”

Hostería del Marqués Review

The small colonial town of Valladolid in the center of the Yucatan peninsula is easy to see in a day or two, but when you’re not roaming the streets, snapping photos of the brightly colored houses and buildings, swimming in the nearby cenote or admiring the architecture of the 16th-century convent of San Bernardino de Siena, consider passing time in the multipurpose Hostería del Marqués, a hotel that offers more than just lodging.

Athens: A city that charms its guests and stirs their emotions

The city took its name from Athena, goddess of wisdom, strategy and war, and protector of the city. The financial, political and administrative center of the country and an all-powerful city-state in antiquity, Athens is a major center of culture. A visit to the first-ever museum dedicated to Byzantium, a stroll around the National Garden and a trip to the Olympeion archaeological site will take you back through time.

Eco-Friendly Tours with REI Adventures, Aqua Expeditions and More

HIKING ALONG A PATH THROUGH THE FOREST, the only sounds I heard were the wind rustling through the leaves, the flow of a distant waterfall and, from time to time, the soft sounds of chatter from the others in my group. Missing were the sounds of traffic rushing by, car horns and the din of the everyday world in which most of us live. On this part of the Japan Hiking – Kumano Kodo & Nakasendo trip with REI Adventures, just the eight of us were on the trail, not another human in sight. An eco-adventure at its best, and it was glorious.
