Republic of Ireland
Unfortunately, due circumstances outside our control we are currently unable to ship orders to the Republic of Ireland.
Due to the level of shipments being returned by AN Post despite all paperwork being correct we have taken the reluctant decision to suspend all shipments to the Republic until the situation is resolved.
We have not taken this decision lightly, we have so many loyal Irish customers and would dearly love to continue shipping, but would rather avoid the inevitable disappointment and frustration that returns will cause.
Non-UK Shipping Locations
Please be aware we are currently receiving reports of significant delays on some shipments to Europe. Whilst we will do our utmost to expedite all deliveries, these circumstances are outside our control and we cannot guarantee delivery dates to European destinations.
By default all prices displayed on this website include UK Value Added Tax (VAT) of 20%.
Once logged in with a shipping location outside the United Kingdom, prices will be shown on the website and in your basket excluding VAT, which is the amount you will be charged.
