Celebrating 25 years with help from ‘The Fine Bedding Co’

Anniversary Sale Celebrating 25 years of business on Oliver Plunkett St. !

Following the runaway success of our last giveaway competition we are delighted to announce another great prize, this time courtesy of our friends at the Fine Bedding Co. 🙂 For many years they have been the market leader in terms of product innovation and their duvets and pillows are designed with one purpose – to give you a great  night’s sleep!Unknown-2Again, all you have to do is skip over to our Facebook page, SHARE & LIKE the competition and you may be our lucky winner.

Unknown-1The “Spundown” duvet uses the latest ‘Smartfil’ fibres and these are incredibly soft and light to give you exceptional warmth without weight. Choose from a 13.5 tog, a 10.5 tog or a 7.0 tog. What makes the   “Spundown” duvet unique is that ALL SIZES up to super-king are washable at home in a   domestic machine at a temperature of 60deg. This is the temperature required to kill dust-mites and many of those other nasty bugs that cause asthma & other related conditions.

UnknownSo… how much better can it get..? Well – you can win a double or king “Spundown” duvet of whichever tog rating you like PLUS we are going to give you two “Spundown” pillows as well 🙂

This is what Jan had to say about her “Spundown” duvet…               “Have just purchased my second Spundown duvet.                             Never had such comfort. Absolutely wonderfully luxurious.”

KALAMKARI by V&A. Back by popular demand!

And as older designs are cleared out, and new designs arrive, this Autumn also marks the return of the classic Kalamkari, proving that some designs are never completely out of fashion! Kalamkari was first launched by Dorma in the Spring of 1996. Now a V&A branded design, we are delighted to make it part of our Autumn range, and at a reasonable price too, with double sets at €65 and king sets at €75. The sets include duvet covers and two matching oxford pillowcases.

Many customers have been glad to see a collection of PVC shopping bags from Lamont back in stock. (There’s even a Christmas design amongst them!). We have stocked up on glass cloths too, including many with an Irish theme; perfect gifts to send to relatives abroad.

Meanwhile, the latest range of towels from the Bed and Bath Collection is brightening our shelves, with colours that include teal and raspberry, and, for the Autumn, grape, spice and mink. Come check them out!

Spring Fever!

We’re so glad it’s February. Spring is in the air, and every other day new stock arrives at our doorstep. So far we’ve enjoyed unpacking new bedlinen from VandA, Sanderson and Vantona, and these are on display in our image gallery.

Although our winter sale officially ended over a week ago, there are still stock clearance items at great prices. Our ever-popular Clusterfull pillow pairs remain at €25, and our anti-allergy 10.5 tog duvets are still half-price too.

You'll love our half-price 10.5tog quilts this much too.

Just this week we had a large delivery of baby blankets and kid’s throws in wonderful Disney themes (think Mickey, Minnie and Cinderella), cute animal designs, and even moped inspired motifs. Certainly worth checking out.

We’ll keep ye posted as more stock rolls in-and don’t forget to drop by for a browse!

Two weeks left to go!

Country Diary products-25th anniversary.
Country Diary products-25th anniversary.

There are just two weeks left in the Winter Sale, so you still have time to bag yourself a bargain this January. While the offers continue, we’re now looking forward to Spring and all the new designs and stock that will bring. We’re sure to have some pretty Country Diary designs in amongst the Spring stock, especially as this brand celebrates its 25th anniversary this year-check out this vintage poster which captures the inspiration behind such designs.


With the cold weather with us for another while yet, however, don’t forget that there are great discounts on cosy duvets, twin-pack pillows, and even snug mattress protectors.


Navy sheets are also back in stock. At times this can be a difficult colour to obtain in bed-linen, despite the fact that it’s super for boy’s beds, and a match for most boy’s quilt covers. We have fitted, flat and base valances, all in navy!


We’ve been updating the image gallery this week so do check it out. There are six bright and cheery designs from both Linen House and Abode. We look forward to adding more new designs as they arrive.

Have a great weekend!

There are some fantastic offers to be had with plenty items at half price or more. Tulips by Sanderson is just one of those great half-price deals in store now.

We do hope that you all had a lovely Christmas break and we wish you All the Best for the New Year 2013.

It’s the end of the year!

Enjoy your bank holiday and any jazz you may encounter this weekend.

Well, at least it is for us! If you pass by and happen to see us with a slightly dazed expression, it’s because we’ve been busy counting all those tea towels; 1,267, 1,268, 1,200 and – no start again 😦 Annual stocktaking is just one of the reasons we’re so full of the ‘joie de vivre’ at the moment 🙂

The really good news though, is that there really is some great value as we make way for all the new Autumn stock arriving in November. Have a look at the “Vantona’ Egyptian cotton sheets or the “Essentials” range of duvet covers by ‘Bedeck’ – all at half-price or less.

As a special offer for the Jazz Weekend, we are giving 10% off all duvets & pillows from “The Fine Bedding Co.” as well as 10% off the range of novelty duvet covers from “Just Kidding”, the new brand from Australia which is exclusive in Cork to Household Linens.
