My week: Fab refurb of iconic Strand Hotel

I joined Maria O’Gorman Skelly, Richard Lynch, Stephen O’Connor, general manager of the Limerick Strand Hotel and PJ Gibbons at the big reveal of the Strand Hotel's splendid new revamp

WE are so lucky to have the Strand Hotel in the centre of Limerick city!

It is in such an iconic location overlooking the river Shannon. It's great to see the hotel having so much confidence in the city that it has just completed a €1.6 million refurbishment programme upgrading of 184 contemporary bedrooms and 13 suites.

To celebrate this I attended a fabulous evening with a huge turnout of friends and well-known faces from the world of sport, fashion, beauty, media and music. The ambience of the Strand Hotel makes it the perfect venue for me when it comes to producing fashion shows as the ballroom is the perfect location in the heart of Limerick city. Congratulations to all at the Strand Hotel.

Cocktails, Cuisine
and Style

THE beautifully refurbished Cornstore Restaurant was the venue for the annual Cocktails, Cuisine and Style fashion show. I really feel that it is one of the most fashionable events in the city each year. The glamour was through the roof with the Limerick ladies wearing some of the most stylish looks I have seen this season.

On arrival we were greeted with a variety of great cocktails and then it was on to enjoy fabulous food and fashion, all for a great cause, Limerick Mental Health awareness.

It is always a fantastic evening of fun, fashion and food and all for such a worthy cause!
