Shipping to Ireland

Since Brexit, we have had extreme difficulty in getting parcels delivered in Ireland.  Despite completing all necessary customs paperwork which is suitable for all other International orders, parcels are still being rejected by Irish customs.  We have had no explanation as to why there is a problem or how to satisfy the customs in Ireland.  Therefore to avoid disappointment and costly postage costs for parcel that never get delivered we have taken the difficult decision to suspend shipping to Ireland.

We ask any Irish customers who wish to discuss matters to contact us directly on
