Give the best to the ones you love most
BabyLove.ie launched in 2019, is a family-run online baby shop from the beautiful village of Oughterard Co Galway.
How did it all start?
Our journey began back in 2018 when we were getting ready for the arrival of our son.
The more boxes we were checking off on our list the more we learnt that having a baby in Ireland costs premium most of the time and you’re lucky if you can get what you want due to often limited supplies. So, whether we liked it or not, we had to buy most of our stuff overseas and we felt that was just not good enough.
This is when we started to seriously consider if we could perhaps offer something that others couldn’t?
Our answer was a resounding Yes!
We’ve decided to continuously place a growing number of high-quality baby products on the Irish market at a fair price.
Therefore we agreed that each product we would sell would have to meet the strictest safety requirements, that it must be a product of high quality and that it has to have superb design where possible.
Moreover, we wanted the majority of our products to be price competitive. That alone meant that our offer had to challenge some of the biggest guns on the Irish market.
So with no prior experience in IT or e-commerce, we vigorously set out and started building an online store, that we would want to use ourselves and hopefully that others would too.
Where are we now?
We can say we have made it! We have created a place where you can shop with peace of mind from the comfort of your home. We think we have done a good job, but we are dying to know your opinion as almost all the improvements regarding user experience and store performance were made following the feedback from our customers instead of the so-called experts. So, if there is something we can do better, please do not hesitate to let us know.
Currently our baby and nursery shop has around 2000 products on offer and we are continuously expanding the portfolio. But how is this possible? Well we work closely with our partners in Germany, Poland and France and thanks to a refined inventory system, we can use their inventory to provide such a vast selection to our customers.
And how long does it take?
Most of our parcels arrive within 5 to 7 working days, and always at a flat rate of 6.99.
Keeping our prices reasonable is possible thanks to the reduction of the marketing costs.
So, if you like our baby shop please spread the word to your friends and family and help us to keep our prices fair!
