Some country areas, Western Australia, South Australia, Northern Teritory, Tasmania and New Zealand can take 5-10 working days (working days are Monday through Friday, excluding holidays).
*Please note these delivery times vary in peak periods such as Christmas & St. Patricks Day etc. Please refer to the Christmas Shopping Guide for delivery information for Christmas 2015. If you have any queries about delivery schedules please contact the office - firstname.lastname@example.org
Do I get confirmation of my order?
Yes - You will be sent an e-mail with all the details of your order once you have submitted your order. You will get another email to let you know that the order has been dispatched, and you'll be given the tracking number for your order so you can follow the delivery progress. If you haven't received confirmation, then you may have entered your email incorrectly in the check out page. You can contact us on email@example.com to verify that your order has been processed.
Can I buy items in bulk?
Yes you can buy in bulk. Many of our products have bulk options, so click into the product for more information. There is also a bulk buy section on the website.
If you are a retailer or similar looking at 'bulk' supplies, eg cases etc - this may require a different method of shipping, and carry certain discounted rates (we have negotiated with certain suppliers for bulk discounts) - please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with your requirements.
Can any perishable items be re frozen once we receive them?
No. All of our meat products are delivered to us fresh from a local Irish Butcher, these products are then frozen immediately once delivered to our warehouse. When you receive your order, meats can be stored for up to three days in a refrigerator. NB Do not refreeze any of our meat products.
Our standard packaging has best before dates on each product, as required by law. However, when these goods are frozen, the expiry date is non applicable as the goods will remain good for up to three to five days once thawed in a refrigerator. We take great care to package all our meat goods with frozen gel packs in a cooler bag to ensure they remain chilled in transit.
Please note, there are restrictions on the areas we can send perishable goods to due to lengthy delivery times to certain areas, e.g. it is not safe to send meats to Perth or Northern Territory etc, as it can take up to seven days for delivery.
Can I order my Irish brekkie in early December to eat on Christmas Day?
Unfortunately the only way to deliver our perishable goods is from frozen. This means they cannot be refrozen once you receive them, and must be consumed within three days. This year our cut off date for ordering all perishable items is Tuesday 16th December at 4pm AEST. This means that all perishable items will be delivered a week before Christmas and therefore cannot be consumed on Christmas Day. We do apologise for any disappointment or inconvenience caused, however from our experience it is not safe for perishable goods to be in transit during Christmas week.
All perishable orders placed after Tuesday 16th December (4pm AEST) will be dispatched week commencing 05th Jan 2015.
Can an order be sent to someones else's address?
Yes - your order can be sent to your preferred address (perhaps an old friend, relative, business associate) - just enter the delivery address in the respective section on the order form. There will also be a billing address to fill in on the same page. It is important to ensure the recipient will be at home to receive the delivery. It may be more suitable to get the parcel delivered to their work address as deliveries are made Monday through Friday 9am - 5pm. You will need to advise the recipient that there is a gift on the way so they can advise you of any special delivery instructions including the best delivery address. We cannot be held responsible for perishable items or chocolate that may be effected if left in the heat of the day.
How will my order be delivered?
At present, orders are dispatched to Australian Post. Our carriers are very reliable companies, giving secure, quick and cost effective delivery. However delays and mistakes can happen, please work with us if this happens and we will remedy the situation as quick as possible. Delivery schedules will also vary in peak periods such as Christmas. Please refer to the special delivery instructions or contact the office with any questions you might have.
