High quality bed, mattress and headboard

Got 2 of these recently in double size. One for our new extension and the other for my sister. Very high quality bed. The bed is a semi orthopedic. Got them from bigmickey.ie - totally recommend as have bought from them before a few times.

http://www.donedeal.ie/bedroom-for-s...argain/7235063

The bed is manufactured in UK by Best Rest beds and the headboard is a wave leather model by Stuart Jones- www.stuartjones.co.uk The cheapest I could find the headboard anywhere is around €300 on sale and is as much as €450 in some shops so we got the complete bed for less than you could pay for the headboard on its own in most bed retailers.


We got the lot, that is bed, mattress and headboard for €399 each. Normal price is in the region of €850 so I think its a bargain worth sharing.

Well if we get 5 years out of these beds we will be happy but hopefully even longer.

No, what I meant was for €399 even if we only get 5 years out of it the cost is only a little over a euro per week. We hope it lasts much longer.

No your delivery comes in a plain Brown envelope.




Alternative answer - Yes

Free delivery to Waterford also. We are in Dublin everyday. Not as often in Waterford but once ordered should not be too long. Tell us what you need and we will try our best for you.

This is a once off offer while stocks last.. The headboard offered is a Stuart Jones Wave leather headboard. Google it and see what the prices are in all the big shops. What we are offering the complete bed for |(base, mattress and headboard) is the price some of the big shops are charging for the headboard alone. Free delivery to Kerry also.

On a scale of 1 - 10 I'd say 7.

The picture of the bed on Donedeal does not do it justice. I will try and post a picture of ours tomorrow. It looks far better in our bedroom.
