'The Beekeeper' Collection Available Now |  Free UK Returns

I was lucky enough to have a little trip to Dublin last week, which was organised by the UKTI - who run lots of schemes to encourage and help British companies to export.

It was quite a whirlwind trip, so I will share it with you in pictures!

Arriving on a nice sunny morning at Bewleys Hotel.

First thing was a trip into Dublin city centre......

Spotted this amazing Louis Vuitton window in Brown Thomas - a dripping gold shelf with a swarm of Bees!

Stephen's Green Shopping Centre is a beautiful building - like a giant decorative greenhouse!

On Thursday I met a lovely freelance journalist, Ruth O'Connor for a cup of tea at The Shelbourne Hotel, to show her the collections. She recommended I head to the Avoca store, which is along the lines of Anthropologie, to have lunch as they have a great cafe there......

Next up was a showcase at the British Embassodor's Residence, for all of the designers on the trip. I was really glad to have Ruth from fellow jewellers Zoe & Morgan to keep me company - and we managed to have a bit of fun too! The Residence is a really impressive building....very beautiful.

Our display at the showcase - it was so sunny!

On Friday morning I visited Dolls, who we have sold to for quite a while now.  It's such a lovely store, and has an adjoining cafe called Bibi's. The perfect way to shop I think.

Finally I was back to The Shelbourne to meet up with Faye, who works on Irish Tatler and U magazines, who is a BIG fan of Alex Monroe - so thank you for your support Faye!

Back at the gorgeous Shelbourne Hotel.

I felt very much like a tourist taking this snap, but I couldn't resist.....!

Brilliant!

Thanks to everyone involved with this great trip , we hope to be more widely available in Ireland soon...... Feel free to drop us a line if you have any suggestions for possible Irish stockists - we'd love to hear from you!
