Are you looking for a holiday with a difference? Want a winter break that won’t break the bank? Try a winter week in Marrakech.
The city of Marrakech is a feast for the senses and is a place that should be on everyone’s bucket list. David Beckham thought it was cool enough to celebrate his 40th birthday there – so if its good enough for him, why not give it a whirl? With average temperature a balmy 23 degrees in November, it is the perfect time to spend a week in Marrakech. You can enjoy exploring this unique city as well as soaking up the sunshine 😎
Stroll through the Medina and admire the traditional private mansions, or ‘riads’ as they are more commonly known. These house some of Marrakech’s top hotels now and are the best place to stay to soak up the atmosphere.
Go bargain hunting in the souqs and spend some time on the main square, Djemaa el-Fna. Street artists are everywhere, from snake charmers to cookery shows – this square is the heart and soul of Marrakech. Don’t worry though, if you are craving some modernity in this old city you can explore the new town, with it’s modern shops, bars and art galleries.
Fly from Dublin to Marrakech on the 10th of November and enjoy a seven-night stay in the 4-star Riad Ayni or only €283. Superbly located in the Medina neighbourhood, this 5-roomed Riad combines a traditional Moroccan stay with the comforts of a modern hotel. With a full-service spa, a bar/lounge and an outdoor pool, you may not want to leave!
