With shipping it's €3001.54.
Leaving aside import duty and VAT, for €500 I would prefer the peace of mind of buying in Dublin knowing if I had a problem all I had to do was bring it into town.
Conns will give you a loaner if yours is in for repair and will give you free sensor cleans.
Send it back to Kea and you could be waiting a month or more. Plus the shipping fee would be expensive.
The days of buying stuff like this online are gone, the huge savings that made it worthwhile are a thing of the past.
