Wow, another busy weekend!
Saturday 07/11/15 saw me taking a trip with fellow blogger emmabeautyhauls to Kildare Village outlet shopping complex situated adjacent to Kildare village in Ireland’s most populated region.
My first visit to Kildare village was in April and I loved it so I was excited to return especially as I had heard the village had recently expanded bringing with it the likes of Benefit and Fossil!
Unfortunately it rained all day but that didn’t dampen our spirits! Our first stop was of course Cath Kidston, a must see if you love your florals and ditsy prints. There were some really great offers, but nothing that really caught my eye. Next we headed to Joules and I made a few sneaky early Christmas gift purchases. There were some really great bargains here which might explain the sheer number of people in the store! In fact every store was jam packed, possibly as people were trying to escape the rain (outlet shopping is not suited for Irish weather) but also I suppose there aren’t too many Saturday’s left until Christmas (eek!). Kate spade was high on my list of places I had to visit, we both had a little spend in here. I was after an iPhone 6 case as I had previously bought a Kate spade case from the Apple Store due to being talked into it buy a sales assistant. She assured me they were one of the best cases you can buy to protect your phone and she was right, they are great and well worth the money. Kate spade in Kildare sell these for 25 euro which is a great deal considering I spent around £30 for my original case. We visited benefit which was a beautiful store but one downside was there were no prices on any of the items which I found off putting. We visited the new fossil store, again fab and well worth a look. Kildare village was decorated for Christmas and there were twinkle lights everywhere! They had an area dedicated to Christmas put together in the style of mini Christmas market, it was cute I will admit but a little disappointing. There were only a few stalls but plenty of room for more, selling handmade crafts and a little bar area with a very festive feel.
There aren’t too many places to eat in the Kildare village although this has been added to through the new phase 2 extension. There are also some really high end stores if you have the budget for it but equally some more purse friendly options. All in all I had a great day, Kildare village is well worth a visit and especially at this time of year (check the weather forecast and dress accordingly!).
