Ladies Day After Party

Live Music all week

Following a glamorous day at the Galway Races as offical sponsors of the  #gHotelBestDressed Lady and Best Hat, the style moves to the g Hotel & Spa for our annual Ladies Day after party. Catch our courtesy coach from the racecourse direct to the g Hotel where our Signature Lounges are filled with live music, flowing champagne, kicking cocktails and tasty bites. Book a table in our g Suite Lounge and be at the front of the action for our live band and be seen by our judge Lisa McGowan of Lisa's Lust List as she mingles with the crowd from 8pm. Lisa previously won our g Hotel Best Dressed at the Galway Races so is perfectly poised to pick out the best of all the beautiful millinery creations and stylishly dressed gents.

This year the talented Paul Harrington will take to the Piano in the Grand Salon, Ken Kurwan will serenade guests in the Lounges and the Red Tape Band will be live in the g Suite getting the party well and truly started!


  • #gBestHat - a stunning bespoke creation by master milliner and g Hotel design director, Philip Treacy.
  • #gDapperGent - We will be rewarding the most Stylish Man with a designer  suit from Brown Thomas Galway.
Judging from 8pm

The annual ‘Best Hat Competition’ at the g attracts fashionistas and milliners from accross the globe. Ladies compete for a beautiful Philip Treacy creation worth over €1,500 and a cash prize of €1,000. Philip is the Design Director of the g Hotel & Spa so we have a strong link to the world of fashion and talented milliners are close to our hearts.

Philip Treacy has been described as a dedicated evangelist of millinery and is considered one of its gods. His designs adorn the heads of Royal Princesses and Harry Potter characters, Sarah Jessica Parker and Lady Gaga. He has collaborated with Chanel, Versace, Givenchy, Alexander McQueen, Valentino and Ralph Lauren. His designs range from classic to surreal and are utterly recognisable.


Calling all hipster husbands, groovy gents, stylish sons and fashionable fellas for a week of serious racing, fabulous fun and the ‪#‎gDapperGent. Our 'Most Stylish Man' competition returns on Thursday 2nd August. The most dapper gent will receive a designer Canali suit from Louis Copeland.
