style spotter: galway girl

theromanticErin go Bragh! Slainte! Craic! Yes, it’s true: St. Paddy’s Day is here!

Let’s get this out of the way now: it’s Paddy’s, not Patty’s. Though we learned this lesson circa Dublin St. Paddy’s 2009, I found a very impassioned website that explains why, and this guy is on a mission to end the madness (also, he points out that ordering a car bomb anywhere, and especially in Ireland, is really not ok.)

Back with me now? OK, so. I figure this is the best time to share a little travel announcement! If you haven’t guessed it by now…

Next month, I’m returning to Ireland!


Ahhh, the glory. The hubs and I will be making the trip sans wino, which feels like a bit of a sacrilege. Instead, I’ll be showing my other other half all my favorite Dublin spots, as this is only his second time on the Emerald Isle — and the first was just a six hour layover. (It counts because he had a Guinness and heard a band at The Brazen Head play “Dirt Old Town.”) We’ll also be meeting up with his fam, and making our way over to Cork & Galway. Am I excited?


Details are still coming together, but one thing is for sure: while in Galway, we’ll be spending a few nights at The G Hotel. It was love at first click, and when I realized it was decorated by renowned milliner & Galway native Philip Treacy, I was sold. I poked around the gallery a bit, and absolutely love that the rooms are all very  classic and tranquil with a few splashes of crazy. Like me, really:

Like, are those cupcakes on that coffee table? And where can I get seashell shaped throw pillows, huh? Even better, the Pink Salon exists somewhere inside this fairytale come true:

And so, naturally, this calls for a Style Spotter. Wait, but first, press play:

    Hm vastly different from how girls in Galway dress. Think more layers, as they are on the water. And far less pink! I reckon a lot of navy and red.

    Beautiful hotel! I love Galway and all of Ireland. If you want some fun/crazy Irish people to hang out with while you’re visiting let me know, I have a whole slew of cousins I know you’d just adore.

    PS Love the outfit!

    Ha, just the other day I was wondering if it was Party’s or Paddy’s. I must have felt some vibes coming from this blog. 😉 I hope to go to Ireland someday, not necessarily around March 17 though.
