My Kildare Life with YouTuber, fashion, travel and lifestyle blogger Saoirse Crummey

Saoirse Crummey

Saoirse went to primary school in Naas Mercy Convent and secondary school in St Mary’s College. She now works full-time in the bank.

Her dad's name is Gerard, her mam Siobhan is a hairdresser in Naas, and sister Molly is doing her Junior Cert in St Mary’s.

WHAT IS YOUR FIRST KILDARE MEMORY?

It has to be spending weekends in the Curragh or the Japanese Gardens with my nanny and grandad!

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE THING ABOUT KILDARE?

Most people would probably say how beautiful it is but personally I love the GAA and horse racing culture!

I love when the county comes together, whether that’s standing in Hawkfield or in Punchestown, the buzz is just unreal.

WHAT'S YOUR IDEAL DAY SPENT IN KILDARE?

It would probably be revolved around food and shopping with my boyfriend, Conor. We love to go to SoSew in Naas for breakfast, the best avocado on toast! Then some shopping in either Whitewater if it’s a cold day or if it’s that one day a month where it’s sunny then we will go to Kildare Village for a look around! It’s so pretty, especially in the summer!

We would then go for dinner in Lock 13 and maybe meet up with some friends for a few drinks in Graces in Naas.

FAVOURITE RESTAURANT?

Definitely Lock 13 in Sallins or Rustic in Naas.

WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO GET INTO YOUTUBE AND BLOGGING?

I have always loved YouTube. I always said that I would love to do it but I just didn’t have that spark of confidence. It took me about three years of annoying Conor and all my friends about it to eventually put up my first video. I love sharing outfit ideas, makeup looks, travel experiences and everything lifestyle on Instagram but I couldn’t get my full personality across in a picture so I just bit the bullet and made a YouTube channel. I have loved every second of it since!
