The good life in travel and toys

High-End Hideaways GREENING THE EMERALD ISLE
Nestled on 450 pristine acres that include a parkland golf course, Dromoland Castle pampers guests in a style befitting its 16th-century Irish pedigree. But despite the traditional demeanor of its public spaces, the resort has adopted forward-thinking, eco-friendly practices that have made it carbon neutral and the winner of a coveted Green Fáilte Platinum Award. Rates from $350 per night. dromoland.ie

TROPICAL RENDEZVOUS
Escape the winter doldrums at Seven Stars Resort in Turks and Caicos. This all-suite property on Provo’s dreamy Grace Bay Beach features luxurious accommodations, a spa, a fitness center, a fleet of water toys, tennis courts and private dining on the beach. Rates from $593. sevenstarsgracebay.com

BY GEORGE
Fresh from a $5 million renovation, The George in DC’s Capitol Hill features dramatically updated guest rooms and public spaces. Boston-based CBT redesigned the boutique Kimpton hotel in a clean, edgy style while paying tribute to its namesake, George Washington. In the lobby, modern furnishings play off a bold portrait of the first president by Warhol protégé Steve Kaufman. Weekend rates from $209. hotelgeorge.com

STREAMLINED SOUND
Geneva’s Model XL Wireless packs an entire sound system in a glossy, compact case. Equipped with six speakers, two full-range woofers, two tweeters and two subwoofers, the XL plays from a wide range of sources, including Bluetooth, FM radio and CD. Shown here in white, it’s also available in black, red and walnut. $2,299; optional floor stand, $199. genevalab.com

ALFA ROMEO REVIVAL
If all the buzz proves correct, Alfa Romeo will start shipping cars to the U.S. again later this year. The most awaited model is undoubtedly the 2014 4C coupe. Even more alluring now than when it appeared long ago in The Graduate, the new model boasts a carbon-fiber chassis and a 240-horsepower turbo engine that goes from 0 to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds. alfaromeo.com

SING ALONG
Singing Machine Home lets entertainers of every caliber enjoy the fun of karaoke at home. The device connects to a TV via HDMI for instant access to more than 8,000 karaoke videos. It also doubles as a Bluetooth-enabled speaker, making it far more versatile than old-school karaoke kits. Available at Best Buy for $299. singingmachine.com
