Double buggy sales help

Can anyone advise me as to where in Ireland a reasonably cheap double buggy can be bought.
My home town of Drogheda is a complete rip-off more so in this area.
Thanks.

We got our double buggy online from this place:

http://www.babydaysdirect.co.uk/prod...package-1/410/

Was good value at the time (a year ago) as it saved us about €150 on a fully loaded package compared to shops here. Check it out and compare prices yourself as not sure how the prices would compare now.

If you're in Drogheda you're fairly close to the border, maybe you could get a better deal on one up north given the currency exchange at the mo?

Sadly i think we're all in the same rip off boat. The north suggestion is a good one. Every so often mothercare do a special on the phil and teds buggy where you get the double kit free when you buy it, might want to keep an eye out for that?

We bought a Phil and Teds Vibe few months ago at
http://www.thenaturalbabyresource.co.uk/site/index.html. They are just over the border off the M1 behind Dromad Garda Station. Well worth the trip up for the saving. Should be there from Drogheda in 20 mins

Thanks for that great one. Will check it out.

I managed to find a few good offers through Ebay (English sellers)

Source: http://baby.shop.ebay.ie/items/Pushc...QQ_sacatZ66700

Some are charging 130+ Euros + 30 Delivery so for 160 Euro, its quite a saving over 350+ we'd pay in town.

Smyths toys sell quite good double buggies at a reasonable price personally I wouldnt go the second hand route because of the warranty. The brake on ours recently broke and Smyths took it away and fixed it foc so its worth having the warranty. Also we have a three wheeler with inflatable tyres a dream to push but not at all convenient when you get a puncture.

We ended up buying one for 130 Euro Plus 30 carraige costs from the UK.

160 in total for what would have seriously cost us a lot more in town (and probably the country).

Site: http://cgi.ebay.ie/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?...m=200277844891

We went through Ebay to buy it from them and got it at an even cheaper price than actually on their own site!
Was delivered in two days from England, in perfect condition.

I have a maclaren double buggy. Only used it a couple of times. Trying to get rid of it if it's any good. The only problem is I'm in South Tipp.
