We ordered a mattress on Thursday from They called to tell us it would be Tuesday before we’d get it. Nothing wrong with that.

It actually turned up on Monday morning, which is pretty stunning. A new mattress, free delivery to our door, from the UK, that quickly, and for a fraction of what it would cost to buy one from a store in Dublin, where we would have been charged extra for delivery.

Incidentally we went for the Simmons Memory Ortho Mattress. £199 delivered (about €225).

We shopped around a bit, if any bricks and mortar store in Dublin could have come close I’d have given them the business. Harvey Norman didn’t have the same mattress, but anything similar was €500++++

Beds etc. was a joke. They had a nasty cheap looking and feeling mattress, that felt a lot like the one we were dumping, and they were asking €249.

In case you’re in the market for a mattress, I have no problem touting the Simmons Memory Ortho Mattress (no they are not paying me anything to post this). It was comfy when I crawled into bed last night, and it was A LOT more comfy when I woke up this morning.

For a mere €225 I can not for the life of me understand why I waited so long to get rid of the old mattress.
