If you think the splashy pink and purple interior of the g Hotel and Spa bears more than a passing resemblance to the hats worn by Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie at Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding, you’d be right. Galway son and celebrity milliner Philip Treacy designed both, as well as headgear for Lady Gaga, Grace Jones and Boy George.

The rugged Irish coastal city of Galway doesn’t seem like the obvious setting for such a bold establishment. Yet locals seem as admiring as reviewers -- Condé Nast Traveler named The G one of the world’s top three design hotels. Expect a hot pink Ladies' Lounge, shell-shaped restaurant banquettes and vortex-patterned carpets, plus a blue-hued Gentlemen’s Lounge.

The indulgence continues in the rooms, with huge beds, Treacy-designed linen and photographs of the designer’s favorite model, Linda Evangelista. In the suites, you can watch the big TVs from the bathtub.

The Asian-inspired spa by Espa offers an award-winning hot stone treatment, and hosts a vitality pool, crystal steam room, rock sauna, ice fountain and a relaxation room overlooking the rooftop zen garden.

The light-filled Restaurant gigi's serves modern Irish cuisine with local ingredients and has been awarded two AA Rosettes for culinary excellence, one of only three in Galway to achieve the grade. Expect Kilmore Quay king scallops with cauliflower purée and smoked bacon, pan-roasted Silverhill duck breast and basted fillet of Clare Island salmon. After dinner, sip on a cocktail special in the cocktail bar.
