One of Ireland's most prestigious wedding shops is shutting down
The end of an era.
One of Ireland's most famous wedding dress boutiques, Myrtle Ivory, is closing its doors.
The bridal boutique, which is located on Dublin's Anne's Lane, has found gowns for some of Ireland's most famous brides including Amy Huberman and Rosanna Davidson.
Before it closes down, it is holding a sale with up to 80 percent off dresses.
It stocks some very well-known labels including Stephanie Allin, Watters Couture, Patrick Casey, Amanda Wakeley and Anna Kara.
The sale will run from now until July 31. Appointments are available from Monday to Friday, however you are allowed to walk in on Saturday and Sunday from 11am – 4pm.
Meghann Mill O Riordan and her mother Marina opened the shop in 2007, and announced to their customers yesterday that they have decided to go down different paths, and with a heavy heart, will be closing the store.
