I've had excellent experience with aria.co.uk - I presume they should
ship to Ireland. Give them a call and experience the luxury of talking
to an actual person after a minimum of automated touch-tone recognition
and being on hold. I've had to make a number of returns to them and
they've always dealt with it excellently and in good time. Prices
similar to dabs.com but not as huge a selection :-(
I've found dabs.com very poor in the after-sales service and returns
department. While they are cheap and have always despatched stuff to me
in a timely fashion, I had over a month of nonsense trying to get them
to replace a motherboard for me - and they charged me to return the
faulty motherboard to them!
Overclockers.co.uk have sent me some stuff as well - good prices and my
order has been processed and sent out speedily - but I've not used them
a lot and I've never returned anything to them, so I can't really
comment with great authority.
Hope this helps.
