What if I do not like one of the products received?

We work hard using our taste and curating skills to find the best of the best in Ireland for you. If for some reason however, you don’t love the product as much as we do, then we would suggest that you could gift product to a friend? However, if this is not an option, please contact us with seven days of receiving your MyIrelandBox and you can ship the entire box and its contents back to us.
