The hunt for Her Best Dressed begins...we're here at the Galway Races

The search for Her Best Dressed begins!

Ballybrit is buzzing as Thursday of race week kicks off and the stunning fashion is a sight to behold.


The sun is shining, the glad rags are on and Galway is most certainly the place to be as racegoers celebrate 150 years of the summer festival.

Our judges, broadcaster Síle Seoige, author and nutritionist Rosanna Davison and Her's Gillian Fitzpatrick have landed and are currently scouting the best looks alongside a team of roving style reporters.

Already we can see that block colours and statement prints are ruling the racecourse and it's going to be very difficult to whittle down the entrants to just ten finalists.

Of course, in addition to Her Best Dressed, we're also on the lookout for Best Hat and the headpieces are nothing short of amazing.

The winner of the Her Best Dressed competition will go home with an Emirates Holidays trip to the Seychelles including flights, transfers and accommodation worth over €2,500, and a whopping €3,000 in spending money.

The prize for Best Hat is pretty amazing too, a luxury stay in The Lodge at Ashford Castle worth over €1,500 which includes two nights’ accommodation in a Lakeview suite.
