Buying Lego in Ireland

Stock checkers

I'd known about for a while, a handy site that can check stock in a dozen Argos stores in one click. Just found that there's a similar service for Smyths which funnily enough is called


Hi all,

Has anyone come across LEGO Education WeDo sets in any shops (gift idea) or are they only available online?


UK LEGO prices to increase 5% in January

Could have an impact on online shopping in the new year. Hopefully it doesn't affect prices here.

2017 Sets

The first 2017 sets are appearing in the shops.
Today both Smyths and Argos announced that they are now stocking the new Rogue One sets.
No surprise that the prices at Argos are 20% higher than Smyths...

40125 Santa's Visit

View set 40125 at Brickset

If anyone is looking for this set, it is now out of stock in most Smyths, but Argos have it for €12.49.

Aer Lingus Aer Miles Avios

For anyone who flies regularly with Aer Lingus the new Aerclub is now available for sign-ups. You might be wondering why I am mentioning it here but retail purchases through the Aerclub portal attract Avios air miles. One of the participating retailers is Argos is another.

Tesco Direct UK 3 for 2

Tesco Direct have just started another 3 for 2, third time in the last few weeks! Users of Parcel Motel / Parcel Wizard / Address Pal etc may be able to get some bargains or you can click and collect at a store in NI.

Argos collaboration

I'd like to get the Volvo excavator but don't have the appetite for 3 sets at the moment.
If there are two more people in the same position, looking for a set between €85 and €95 we can buy together.
Ideally someone who's coming to the Nealons event or Raheny.

Duffy's Toyworld, Dunleer


We found a fantastic toy store in the small Louth town of Dunleer. They have a big selection, though a relatively small LEGO area (but quite well stocked - they have a great selection of Architecture sets, for example). The owner said they would love to have a bigger LEGO section, but they can't get enough stock off LEGO.

Anyway, I picked up this:

for €99, which is normal retail price, but it's been OOP a couple of years, so not a bad price. They have a couple of more if anyone's interested. I noticed a couple of other OOP sets too.


I opened a Bricklink Store!

I had to move all my Lego twice over the last couple of months which made me realise that I had far too much. I have loads of unopened boxes, mostly duplicates of sets I have opened and “unmissable” bargains or sets that had some useful parts for a MOC that never got used etc., so I have opened a Bricklink shop! I am probably mad Surprised

The store is

There are over 20,000 new parts listed and I hope to get that to over 50,000 in the next few weeks. I just added 7783 - The Batcave: The Penguin and Mr. Freeze's Invasion.

There are over 300 polys and early Mixel series sets, I don't plan to list large sets due to postal costs.

To generate some feedback I am offering members 15% off orders for the next week and free postage in Ireland on orders over €30. If ordering please mention in the comments Eye-wink
