No direct experience but they are part of the hut group of sites from what I can see. I have ordered in the past from thehut.com for non cycling items and was happy with what I got and their delivery. Haven't had recent experience though.

Have ordered from them before. No major issues. I remember one item took a week or 2 longer than expected to be delivered but was kept up to date throughout that time.

AFAIK they do not have free returns from Ireland so you would have to cover that yourself if required.

Ordered from them a couple of times, they are grand. Not a bother.

They're grand. Their prices fluctuate a lot though, though generally between one or 2 fixed points.

Bought a Scicon bike box from them a couple of months back - no issues and significantly cheaper than ordering direct from Scicon or other retailers. As Weepsie said, their prices can fluctuate a bit, but they're generally pretty competitive. Never had to return anything so can't comment on what their support/returns process is like.

Used them a lot over the years. Deliver not the quickest (usually 3-4 days) but reliable and prices usually very good if you keep an eye on what you want.
Over all very positive experiences with them.

Never had a problem with them. They tend to have pretty good deals on specific items. I know I've managed to get some FFWD wheels from them a while ago that were cheaper than anywhere else I looked

The exchange rate is decent enough at present but it is worth checking against some of the big German online retailers

Used them a few times, and MyProtein lots of times, with no issues. They use Fastway, which is about the only downside with them - the website is reliable, DPD less so in my experience...
