Our standard delivery times to Europe is up to 10 days. For orders to the rest of the world please allow an additional week.

How do I know if my item has been dispatched?

You will receive a dispatch confirmation via email, sent to the email address on your order.

Can someone else sign for my delivery?

On orders placed online we provide the option to ship to a different address than the one at which your card is registered. For security reasons, this service is discretionary, and we reserve the right to only ship to the billing address, or verify details with our customers before shipping to a different address. If you have made a mistake with your delivery details, contact us immediately and we can try to amend them. If the order has already left our office, then the delivery address cannot be changed. All orders will be delivered by courier so it is important that there will be someone at the address to receive the goods and sign for them.

Can I change the delivery address?

If the order has already left our office, then the delivery address cannot be changed.

Do you deliver to my country?

We deliver to most countries worldwide, and the delivery charge will be calculated at the checkout when you finish your order. Delivery times vary depending on location.

Do I have to pay Customs & import charges?

Any customs or import duties are charged once the parcel reaches its destination country. These charges must be paid by the recipient of the parcel. Unfortunately, we have no control over these charges, and cannot tell you what the cost would be, as customs policies and import duties vary widely from country to country. It might be a good idea to contact your local customs office for current charges before you order, so you are not surprised by charges you were not expecting. Any parcels that are refused due to customs charges, the customer takes full liability for all postal charges, return shipment costs, customs charges and handling fees.

Orders to the UK: Following Brexit, Irish VAT is no longer added to our prices for UK customers. However, shipments to the UK are now subject to UK VAT charges and import duty. Once your shipment arrives in the UK, the carrier will send you an email specifying the amount due prior to final delivery.

Is it safe to order online?

Yes, we use a third party payment processor to handle Credit/Debit Card information securely. None of your Credit/Debit card information is stored anywhere on this site. Security checks are also made on all payments, to ensure the authenticity of each card payment.

Which credit cards do you accept?

We currently accept Visa, Mastercard and PayPal for payments online.

When will my card be charged for my order?

Due to the nature of our payments system, the full cost of the order will be charged to the card as soon as it is placed.

Do you have more sizes available?

Only sizes shown on the website are available.

Do you restock items?

Due to the limited nature of some of the products we stock we can often sell out very quickly. We do sometimes re-stock classic or popular items, and if you would like to ask about a product, size or colour that is not shown, please email, or call us on +353 99 73009 and we will be happy to help.
