Meet the hosts

As Buyer in Bella Baby, she previews and tests the finest nursery products from around the globe and hand picks only the best for Bella Baby stores nationwide.

Aoife’s background as a fashion buyer gave her the opportunity to travel the world sourcing and designing children’s clothing collections.

She is sleep deprived and caffeine obsessed and spends most of her free time with her family on Galway’s beaches (in raincoats and wellies of course).
