Where fashionistas should visit this Bank Holiday weekend




I've posted many times about my love of Kildare Village (read my previous posts here and here). The chic outlet is home to numerous brands that offer fantastic deals on everything from handbags to pits and pans. My favourite brands at Kildare Village are All Saints, Nike, Mulberry and DKNY. They never fail to impress me and the discounts are always fantastic. Located less than an hour from Dublin, my latest visit in March was as good as my two previous times. This difference this time was that I was already in Dublin for a visit with a friend meaning I was closer to Kildare! Kildare Village is easy to reach by the daily coach service from Dublin City Centre or by car with ample parking. I was also delighted to see that a large extension has started on the Village with many new retailers coming to the centre in winter of this year- as if I needed another excuse to go!

The coming Bank Holiday Weekend would be the perfect time for a trip down to the Village to stock up on some new bits for summer. On my last visit I bought fantastic new Nike Frees, a draped top from All Saints and a great pair of trousers from DKNY. My friend was a bit naughty and purchased a new Mulberry bag that was heavily discounted. Additionally, the Village is currently hosting an exhibition with Irish Design 2015, meaning that if fashion really is your thing, the up and comers of the industry  will be there for you to interact with. Workshops and installations are part of the 'In The Fold' exhibition including a weaving workshop with Donegal designer Oliver Duncan Doherty this Saturday at 2pm.
