Hats off to new Afternoon Tea at the g Hotel

Long recognised as the best Afternoon Tea in Galway, the g Hotel has just introduced a new millinery inspired edition celebrating their design director and haute couture milliner Philip Treacy.

For over 25 years Galweigan Philip Treacy has designed many ground-breaking head pieces that delight and often astonish with their beauty and imagination. Described as creating ‘works of art that live timelessly in fashion history’ by Vanity Fair, some of Treacy’s most iconic creations have now inspired a new Millinery Afternoon Tea series at the g.

Head Pastry Chef and skilled Chocolatier Kristin Jahnke has selected a stunning butterfly head piece once showcased by Naomi Campbell as the muse for her first edition. The piece was beautifully photographed on the runway by David Chapelle its vibrant brilliance looking as though a cloud of butterflies floated around the stunning Naomi Campbell. The drama and colour of this Philip Treacy creation made it an obvious choice for the new Millinery Afternoon Tea but it is additionally relevant as a photo of Naomi Campbell already hangs in the g Hotel as she modelled in Philip Treacy’s first ever runway show. The photo of Naomi is one of a number of special touches and intricate details that milliner Philip Treacy introduced to the g Hotel as design director.

To experience his vision first hand, escape to the stylish surroundings of the stunning Signature Lounges at the g where you can indulge in an exquisitely presented Millinery Afternoon Tea at €46.00 for two guests sharing.
