This keeps the traditions alive and creates demand for sustainable, high quality heirloom pieces that are meant to last. Below please find our Shipping & Delivery details.
Once your order is processed, we aim to send your items as quickly as possible. At the moment, with Covid restrictions in place, we will be posting twice weekly. If you need an item quicker, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will aim to get you your parcel out as quickly as possible. If required, we can gift wrap, add a note and send a parcel directly to someone for you. Just let us know that it is a gift in the additional notes section when checking out.
The ‘Click & Collect’ option is available for those in the Connemara region. You will be contacted by us after your order is received to schedule a pick-up time.
