And if you are thinking of entering… do it, as ‘the g Hotel Best Dressed’ event has quite the phenomenal prize for the best dress this year.

So what exactly will you win?

WELL… the lucky winner will receive an exquisite €6,000 diamond and pearl pendant from Galway jewellers, Cobwebs, a €2,000 cash prize and a trip for two to Paris, which includes flights & accommodation.
