The Story

Lilac Rose was created in 2011 as Donna Kennedy and husband David embarked on a wet, soggy caravan holiday in the South East of Ireland. Reflecting on the difficulty experienced in sourcing Donna’s own wedding dress, the couple decided to bring beautiful and uniquely styled wedding gowns and accessories to brides who were looking for a little quirk. Equipped with excellent customer service skills, an eye for beautiful bridal couture and joyful memories of their vintage wedding, Donna and David opened Lilac Rose Bridal Shop in April 2013 shortly after their wedding in Castle Oliver, Co. Limerick.

The mission of Lilac Rose Bridal is to ensure that the bride’s choosing of her wedding dress is a truly indulgent, memorable and magical experience. Our shop is located in Georges Quay, one of the most scenic and atmospheric quarters of historical Limerick city. We took immense pleasure in designing an elegant, welcoming store interior that reflects the chic, alternative and fun personality of Lilac Rose Bridal. Our second store opened in the stunning Kilkenny in July 2016 and is as equally warm and inviting as our Limerick store. Our Kilkenny store also has a vast selection of beautiful designer wedding dresses and carefully chosen accessories to complement your wedding gown.

With styling consultations that promote the individuality of each bride, our specialised expertise is second to none. We stock some of the most stunning gowns in the country from designers such as Charlie Brear, Gemy Maalouf, Rosa Clara, Lou Lou Bridal, Agnes Bridal, Eliza Jane Howell, Justin Alexander and the newly added Ronald Joyce and San Patrick by Pronovias. We also stock a gorgeous collection of veils, headpieces, fur stoles and wraps and shoes to complement your wedding gown.
