Aoibhin Garrihy knows a good bargain buy when she sees one.

The former Fair City star celebrated her 30th birthday in style and she knows better than anyone that looking good doesn't have to cost a fortune.

The Dancing with the Stars finalist enjoyed a romantic meal with her husband John Burke in her adopted home of Co Clare at the converted 18th century property Moy House in Lahinch, which boasts stunning views along the Wild Atlantic Way.

But it was her satin gold dress that was the true star of the night and in even better news, we tracked it down on sale for just €29.95 from Mango, available at stores nationwide and online.

The actress has become as well known for her personal style as she is for her onscreen talent, often championing Irish designers at various red carpet events and rising fashion star Emma Manley even designer her wedding dress last year.

It's a summer of celebration ahead for Garrihy, who will mark her one year wedding anniversary to her long-term love in September, but she revealed they may skip the typical sun holiday in favour of something more inspiring - which is fitting seeing as Burke only returned from climbing Mount Everest last month.

"We've no major plans. We'll definitely do something. I'd love to get away," she told us last month.

"I'm looking at doing a body holiday where it focuses on mind, body and nutrition. Sometimes after lying on a sun bed for two weeks you just feel worse than you did before you went!"
