Carraig Donn is no stranger to the Irish fashion scene - the retailer has more than 50 years of experience under its belt and now houses an array of exclusive, international fashion labels including Pala D'oro, Rowen Avenue, J'aime La Vie and Kelly & Grace.

Great emphasis is placed on the fit and comfort of garments at its HQ in Westport, Co Mayo, and value is always top of the list for the buying team when sourcing their collections. With that in mind, most dresses retail for around €59 and €69, which is good news for bargain hunters this summer. Accessories are also big, and the Soul Jewellery range will undoubtedly turn heads.

Established in 1965, Carraig Donn - 100pc Irish-owned and operated - is a premier retailer of jewellery, giftware and fashion, as this summer collection proves. From a first premises on the Aran Island, the retailer now has 38 stores nationwide and stock is also available online at carraigdonn.com.
