The optimists of Ireland will have noticed the slight stretch in the evenings already, but it's a welcome reminder that we're well on our way out of the dark days of January!
If you feel you just can't make it through the next few weeks without a cheeky getaway, read on for the best tips and deals out there at the moment. From the most famous beach in the world, to luxurious getaways to the Far East, we have the tips for you.
A Pokémon-themed hotel is coming to Japan
The 90s revival is well and truly in swing, and Japan's latest hotel venture is only proving that.
Five Mimaru Locations in Tokyo and Kyoto will feature Pokémon Rooms with Pokémon-themed décor such as giant sleeping Snorlax and dishes with Poké Ball patterns. All guests will also receive complimentary Pokémon merchandise exclusive to the hotel.
Pay a visit to the "World's Most Famous Beach"
Beaches in Ireland are typically calm and peaceful, with waves lapping, seaweed clumping and dogs frolicking in the surf. In Florida, however, they are supersized pleasure centres, almost resorts unto themselves. And Daytona Beach is possibly the most popular of them all.
Often called the "World's Most Famous Beach" thanks to its association with the Daytona 500 NASCAR race - plus Cheer fans will recognise the name from the National Cheerleading Association's annual National Championships - it's loved for its 23 miles of beautiful white sands and a picture-perfect shoreline.
While sunbathing is an obvious choice, you can also hit a cycling trail, take in a dolphin watching tour or do some kayaking and paddleboarding.
