Actress Aoibhin Garrihy is set to tie the knot with her hotelier beau along the Wild Atlantic Way this September, the Sunday Independent can reveal.

The former Fair City actress and John Burke will celebrate their nuptials at the Armada Hotel, near Spanish Point, Co Clare - owned by her long-term love.

Last June, the business man got down on one knee during a scenic cliff walk, while their pet dog, Rubie, wore a very special heart shaped collar, saying 'Marry Me?'

And so far, the Castleknock beauty says "plans are going great".

"I get bursts of energy and then I get a little overwhelmed by the whole thing and need to take a breather. But everything is going great," said Aoibhin.

"John has done lots of weddings in the hotel business, which is brilliant. He knows all the dos and the don'ts so it hasn't been stressful," she said.

Since her Carrigstown departure, the Castleknock native has featured in The Fall - alongside Hollywood A-lister Jamie Dornan,

Aoibhin is now turning to comedy as she prepares to play Ross O'Carroll-Kelly's southside, super-botoxed, shrill, trophy wife, Sorcha, in the third and final run of Breaking Dad at the Gaiety Theatre.
