    I dropped in some books into Oxfam (9 Lower Abbeygate Street) a couple of weeks ago and they were delighted to get them.

    Here's a list of some other charities in Galway.

    I'd try Smyths toy shop, 2euro shops or the art shops. And Eason.

    I need to pick up a good set of pillows, I bought a cheap set before and they squashed to unusable pancakes after about a month. I don't need anything posh like feather or memory foam, I just need a good pillow that wont fall flat after light use. I don't really know what brands to be looking or what price range.

    Any help would be welcome

    Eid, did a search and apparently Dunnes have some

    This is somewhat OT but, pillows that have flattened can be left in the sunshine (get it while it's here) it dries them out - read it on life hack type site recently and just checked mine - it's working.

    Better bedding on the Sean Mulvoy road do Dunlop Pillows, my mom gave me a set of them and I've never slept on a better pillow.

    Mind you they are expensive but 'cost per wear' more than justifies the price.

    What would we be talking? more than 20 euro per pillow?

    Any idea of a ballpark price-range for those?


  • Registered Users Posts: 144 ✭✭ AlbionCat


    Pillows - bought a memory foam one from Penneys, in comparison with a dunlop one it does pretty well. I found it an acceptable replacement and OH hasn't even noticed!

    I did see those ones in Penneys alright, think theyre €12? on offer from time to time at €8 each aswell. Must check see if they still have em.

    €80 euro per pillow, but they are the mercedes of pillows. I just realised I spelled it wrong, should be dunlopillo.

    Upstairs in TK Maxx have a great selection of pillows/bedding/etc.

    Got some lovely good quality feather & down stuff there recently.

    Can really recommend.

    yea I went in and bought some today, had a look in penneys first they had the memory foam ones there at €10ea. I found them a bit firm for my taste, so I went upstairs in TK and got a pair of Diana Cowpe "Hotel Quality" ones for €17. They're great, gonna sleep well tonight! :P

    Nice one.

    Any cheap gyms in the city centre that have student memberships, preferably with a pool. It's annoying how most of them won't put prices on their websites! :mad:

    Planet Fitness, beside the 24hr tesco on the headford road. It's 25 per/month if you use direct debit. No contract. It doesn't have a pool but it's a relatively nice gym by my standards. Avoid the Kingfisher in NUIG at all costs.

    Are these the ones? Or are these a lower end version?

    I think they are but they have a few different types . Dunlopillo is definitely the brand , you wont regret spending a bit extra on them
