Philip Treacy is best known for his exuberant hats, worthy of British royalty and Kentucky Derby style…
The incredibly glam Cocktail Bar:
The pop optic Pink Lounge:
A more soothing palette for the Grand Salon:
And the royal Blue Lounge:
Philip explains his glamorous vision behind this project, “…a good hat, no matter how much it costs, has the ability to make the wearer feel like a million dollars. Walking into the g has the same effect… for each of them, it is their moment on the red carpet.”
Of course, luxury also means giving your senses a break. When exhausted from that whirlwind of eye candy in the common spaces, you can go relax in guest rooms made to refresh.
So how does all this opulence fit into a town that looks like this?
The g’s website says of the town, “Steeped in history yet with a decidedly forward-thinking attitude, it has earned the reputation of being the unofficial arts capital of Ireland”. And the design that has come out of Treacy’s creativity is certainly a work of art indeed.
