Anantara The Marker Dublin Hotel will have well known stylist and media personality Lorraine Keane joining fellow judge fashion doyenne Bairbre Power judging this year’s event.

Lorraine said “I’m so excited to judge this year’s Best Dressed at the RDS Dublin Horse Show, it’s such a lovely occasion for people to dress up, express themselves and take to the stage to be interviewed on their outfit by well-known TV and radio presenter Laura Woods! This year I’m looking for something outside of the box, a type of creativity I haven’t seen before and I would love to see an element of sustainability - whether attendants buy from sustainable brands, explore vintage fashion, borrow or rent, we can all practice conscious consumption.”

Michael Davern, General Manager of Anantara The Marker Dublin Hotel said “The RDS Dublin Horse Show is well known as one of the best events in the country and is a firm fixture in the sporting and social calendar of Ireland. Our sponsorship of Best Dressed at this year’s Show allows us the opportunity to engage and connect with people who are interested in luxury lifestyle and fashion and provides us with the opportunity to tell our audience about the great changes that have occurred recently at our luxury hotel. 

Anantara Hotels, Resorts & Spas recently made its debut in Ireland when it took over what was formerly known as The Marker Hotel. Our 187 bedroom, Five-Star Hotel has undergone a major renovation programme which has seen all of the bedrooms being completely reimagined as well as the addition of our new destination restaurant, Forbes Street by Gareth Mullins. It’s an exciting time for our property and we are very much looking forward to showcasing it to the RDS Dublin Horse Show audience and to working with the RDS and the team there”.
