Thanks so much for your efficient delivery! We were delighted to receive our parcel and have our Patrick's Day full Irish breakfast. It helped us feel a little closer to home. Go raibh maith agat!
I wanted to send my sincere thanks for organising a hamper to be sent to my Irish boyfriend. There were a few hurdles and none more catastrophic than the floods in Qld however it was delivered today and he is very pleased with his surprise Eire hamper. Brownie points to me!
Many thanks for making it happen,
Catherine Ardi, Toowoomba 04/02/2013
Got my order yesterday. It was great to get USA biscuits brought back memories of Christmas when we got a tin at home. Thanks!

Hello Fiona, I am so glad that I used your website. I would give it ten out of 10 for choice and for efficiency of delivery. Both my sons were delighted with their 'tastes from home'. Excellent.
Liz Manning, Darwin 14/12/2012
Delighted with service and products. Postage was expensive but justified with speed of delivery and courier service. Many thanks!

Hi Caroline. Just wanted to thank you for the wonderful service you have provided. My Daughter has now received her parcel from Taste Ireland and is delighted, and even though the order was sent in several days after the deadline, it still got to her today 21/12/12. I will be putting this all over facebook and on linkedin about this great service you proved and informing all the other "Mammys" in Ireland who have children in Australia that they can now get food out to their children via Taste Ireland, i also will be using this service very often from now on. Well done, great job, A very happy Mum and Dad
Thomas and Valerie, Co. Mayo 21/12/2012
I just want to say thank you for your wonderful service, I had put the wrong address on by mistake and I sent email to rectify it but was still a bit worried so I decided to ring Sydney. The girl I spoke to was from Ireland ( can't remember her name) but she had such a lovely touch and manner in dealing with my dilemma in that she had received my email and said " is that Miriam" and then confirmed that she had changed address for me and told me when it would arrive with Ruth. She certainly was a very good embassador for Taste of Ireland. Regards,
Miriam, Dublin 17/12/2012
I purchased a hamper as a present for my brother and his wife who recently moved from Ireland to Perth. It was a great way of sending them a few reminders of home as they spend their first Christmas together in Australia. I would like to thank you for this quick and efficient service as everything seemed to run very smoothly. I would also like to thank you for the quick response to a query I had before making the purchase. This was answered quickly and was very helpful to solve the issue I had which meant I could make the order straight after receiving the reply without having to ask further questions. This was important as the time difference meant that another day or more could have been lost if I was to have any more problems. So I am very satisfied with this service. Overall it was a great service and would be happy to recommend this to anybody. Thank you and have a great Christmas. Le gach dea-ghuí (Best Wishes)
Paul, Limerick 13/12/2012

Many thanks, Parcel received in record time and I loved all the goodies.
Merry Christmas to you and yours. Cheers

Thank to my gorgeous friend Sandra who lives in adelaide, who sent me a yummy irish breakfast hamper for my birthday which i received yesterday. After living in OZ for the past 16yrs I was hanging out for the taste of some decent irish sausages and bacon, and as for the pudding omg, not to mention the marmalade, brown bread and barry’s tea, I love my mug, a good size to enjoy a lovely cup of tea. You have no idea how your goodies have cheered me up, it might be a long way back to Dublin but at least it is nice to open up the pantry and see some things from home in there. I will be telling everyone about your fantastic service and look forward to placing some orders myself. Can’t believe you can get Tayto…………I am in heaven. Cheers guys, great idea, hope the business goes well for you.
Elaine Fisher, Edithvale, VIC 15/04/2011

I can not praise Caroline highly enough for allo the care she has taken with my order over the past couple of weeks, from my initial concerns of the security of the website payment page to part of my delivery going astray. She followed up on everything from follow up emails to follow up phone calls and was never impatient with my many anal queries. Caroline is an asset to your buisness. I will be posting a testemonial as I felt that i got great service. Thanks again.

“I just had to say THANK YOU for shipping Kerrygold butter to the Melbourne Metro area. Irish butter is the best in the world, (just like Irish bacon and Irish lamb!). There is a God - and she wants me to be happy - so she made you decide to start shipping THAT butter to the Melbourne metro. I just put a big order in (for some bacon and pork sausages as well!) and I CAN'T WAIT! Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

"I just received your newsletter and read the the SM Herald report,and just thought its not often enough, that credit is given where credit is due,i sometimes order from taste ireland.and last week i got an order,it was this time last year, that my dad died. And me and my kids were feeling sad and missing everyone back home.So i said lets order some irish food form Taste Ireland.We had chicken curry and chips on friday,brown bread and sausages for breakfast sat,smoked salmon and brown bread for lunch.king crisps as we choose . and i just want to say every taste was so good,and as we ate we smiled.But the best bit was the kerrygold butter we fought over that and i told my kids stories of how we used to toast bread over the fire on a forke and smoother it with butter,and how my granny used to make me toast at her house and put the butter on it and keep it warm for me under the grill,and it was toasted twice and all these memories came flooding back with the taste of that butter.So Eamon thank you, words cannot tell what the taste can do. And your well run company provides so much more than food from Ireland.Its like an old friend coming to visit,and in my case last week ,a friend in need was a friend in deed."
"Hi Caroline, thanks for the excellent customer service response. Most impressive. As a result of your assistance I've introduced two other families to Taste Ireland which should result in some steady business being generated form Adelaide!! Thanks again"
"My order arrived today as promised and looks fantastic.Thank you so much for your fantastic service and I'm looking forward to using your service again."

"Hi there, I would just like to thank you all for providing me with the perfect gift to give to my Irish girlfriend recently. I purchased a few items from your website after finding you while doing a Google search on Irish gift shops in Australia.

She has now starting marking off items in the catalogue that she wants for Xmas!"

I am writing to compliment Taste Ireland on the fantastic service they provide. I placed an order for the first time on Tues last and less than 24 hours later it was delivered to my doorstep, wrapped to perfection. I had purchased cheese, and the way it was wrapped was so efficient. I am over 30 years in Sydney and have never seen a service so efficient. I certainly will be encouraging my Irish friends to use this service, as opeining that box was like going into an Aladdins cave. You should be very proud of your organisation.
Rita Glavin, Wetherill Park, NSW
Hi my new best friends at Taste Ireland, now I have found you I won t be letting go. I put in an order last night and am wondering if I will get it by tomorrow before lunch time as me and the girls are going away on a girl s weekend and I was trying to surprise the girls with some real choco (that s me trying to be Aussie). My name is Avril Taing and I put my order in last night at about 10.30pm. I know this is a tight deadline cheers and forever hopeful.
Avril Taing, Ermington, NSW
Avril here thank you for chasing that box for me on Friday it was on the door step that morning. We gorged ourselves and enjoyed ever minute of it. I told everyone where to get the product. The weekend was perfect Thanks again, customer forever.
