If you're buying two gifts for two recipients at two locations, you'll need to place two separate orders. If you do have any queries at any time, please contact us.

Valued Added Tax (VAT) is an Irish government tax applied to goods and services. There are three primary VAT rates within Ireland: 23%, 13.5% and 0%. Prices shown are inclusive of VAT unless otherwise stated. The standard VAT rate is 23% VAT. Some other items such as books and food are based at the lower rates.
Whether VAT is charged is dependent on the destination of the goods (the recipient's location or shipping address) and not your location. The below table provides a summary:
|Customer Based In||Recipient Based In||VAT Charged|
|Rep. of Ireland||Rep. of Ireland||Yes|
|Rep. of Ireland||European Union||Yes|
