Meet Charlene, Owner of The Dress House 

The Dress House was established in may 2011 when I felt there was a gap in the market for hat hire.  Prior to opening The Dress House I was a part-time piano teacher, I had just had my first child and decided I wanted something a little more flexible. I always had a keen interest in fashion and millinery.


At The Dress House we carry a large selection of bespoke hats made by talented milliners from around the world.. Marc millinery, Laura Hanlon to name a few. We also have a large selection of hairbands and crowns available to buy along with an extensive range of costume jewellery. 

When it comes to hats its a bold fashion choice that many of us are nervous to try but hats can look fantastic when you find the right style to suit you look. When picking a hat there are a few very important things to consider like finding a hat shape to suit your hair and face shape. With over 8 years experience at The Dress House, we will find a hat that is perfect for you and your occasion.

We also specialise in Race day hats.. Ladies Days' have became a very important part of my calendar. I won numerous Ladies Day competitions, including Downpatrick, Naas, Cork and Galway in 2018. I'm a huge believer in dressing to impress and love the part of my job that allows me to help other ladies find the perfect look for their special occasion.
