Three of the best Irish flower delivery services to brighten this wet Wednesday

Three of the best Irish flower delivery services to brighten this wet Wednesday

What’s better than a fresh bouquet to brighten up a dreary day at home?


It doesn’t matter what age, gender or style you are – getting a bunch of flowers will always put a smile on your face. A gorgeous bouquet is suitable for any occasion, even if it’s just to make you feel better after a bad day. And as the weather outside will testify, this wet Wednesday doesn’t look like it will be a particularly fabulous day for anyone.

Supporting local businesses and spending our money close to home is something we’ve all tried to do more of since Covid hit. There are some fantastic Irish florists around that offer reasonable delivery services across the country. Here are three of the best.

Bumblebee Flower Farm

Based in West Cork, Bumblebee Flower Farm is Ireland’s first dedicated edible flower farm, supporting bees and other pollinators and committing to ethical floristry. From March til November each year, the farm creates stunning bouquets of seasonal blooms, and also create wedding packages too. They deliver across the country, offering next day delivery to Cork and Dublin from the day the bouquets are picked up by the courier.

 

Bloom Magic Flowers

Bloom Magic pairs sustainable packaging options with luxurious bouquets that will be the cherry on top of anyone’s day. They aim to bridge the gap between high-end luxury flowers and practical delivery services, and you’ll find bouquets here from €40. They offer next-day delivery across Ireland for €8.

Precious Petals

Award-winning Precious Petals has been one of Dublin’s leading florists for the past 15 years. They offer same-day delivery in Dublin if you order before 2pm, and offer next-day delivery nationwide for their beautiful blooms. They have helpful categories for every occasion, and also offer modification on the bouquets you see on the website if you had something else in mind.
