The Galway

These tall, comfortable leather boots are the original Dubarry boot.
Also available in Extrafit and Slimfit
From the comment section:
This boot is functional when it comes to keeping your feet and calves warm in the snow, riding in the covered arena when your half chaps aren't cutting it, mucking stalls or fetching the ponies from the pasture. - Whitney
 I recently purchased a pair of Dubarry boots, while expensive for a pair of boots for cleaning out stalls and walking in the field, the quality is awesome and are incredibly comfortable! - Annonymous 
I am a huge fan of DuBarry boots. My personal favorite are the knee-high Galways. - Anonymous  
Composite PU/Rubber sole (for excellent traction) is injection molded to upper for a proper seal.  

GORE-TEX Lined - Waterproof and Breathable

Hand crafted in Portugal of Mirapel impregnated, all leather (from English cowhides) outer and upper.  Dubarry makes the Galways for Men as well as Women.

Dubarry Donegal Boots

These comfortable, shorter leather Donegal boots are fleece lined for warmth and have Gore-Tex to make them waterproof.  These are Women's and they also make them for Men.
Love that you featured the DuBarry boots too. I love mine...nothing more waterproof, hardworking and yet great to look at. I wouldn't be without a pair. Etienne fixed me up with mine at the Royal Male in Newport. - Alexandra 
The Donegal boots are calf height and have a fleece lining. 

Feet Stay Warm and Dry in the Snow
From the comment section:
If you live someplace that's cold, gets a lot of snow, you need something that's warm & waterproof, consider Dubarry boots. I bought some in Saratoga two years ago, have worn them in 15 inches of snow, rain and ice. My feet have never gotten cold or wet. They are expensive so if you have to have something new or fashionable every year, this isn't the brand for you, but they are the great boots and apparently last for years.  - HoosaPrep
I like the dubarry boots, best wintertime investment ever.  - Ann
Go Dubarry! I live in those boots all winter long!  - Anonymous
DuBarrys are great. I've had mine for several years now and haven't regretted the purchase for a minute. They have a heavy tread & stay dry even while walking in torrential rain and snow. I wear wool socks and haven't had cold or wet feet yet. - sara 
These might be the best pair of workplace compatible snow boots I have ever seen. - Anonymous

The finger pull and Lycra make for a quick and easy on and off.

Other Dubarry Products

For the streets of Boston, I wear the Dubarry Longford in the same color. - Mona Vernon

Dubarry Sailing Boots
From the comment section:
Our bowman on our Newport to Bermuda bound race boat swears by his Dubarry boots for a secure safe grip on a wet foredeck, warmth in cold weather, and dryness; they are light enough in weight to assure his nimbleness as well, - Hearthstone Farm

Alpaca Wool Socks by Dubarry of Ireland

Made in Italy
Some great holiday gifts for the Dubarry enthusiast are the Alpaca Wool Socks.  Made in Italy, these extra long, and extra soft, socks fit perfectly under the Dubarry Galway boots, or any of their tall boots, for extra warmth in the cold weather.

Alpaca fiber is known for its extreme warmth and light weight, as well as being water resistant so your feet stay dry.  Cold water wash and line dry, and they will come out perfectly.

These socks are generously cut and run true to their size guide <>

Dubarry's Cork Boot

The Dubarry Cork Boot
Dubarry's Chelsea boot, the Cork boot, may be designed for more in-town wear, but they are still Dubarrys, so - lined with GORE -TEX, and made with their treated leather - they are also waterproof.
Shown here in Mahogany leather (they are also available in suede) , they mold to your feet as they break in.  

They feature a "hand built stacked leather heel and sole".

They even have good non-slip soles.

The Dubarry Cork Boot runs a bit big; these are one size down from the Galways and the Donegals.
