Terms of Service


Payment in full must be received in full before any goods can be dispatched.

This does not affect your statutory rights.

Privacy Policy

Your e-mail address must be valid. We use e-mail for communication purposes (order notifications, etc).

Therefore, it is essential to provide a valid e-mail address to be able to use our services correctly. All your private data is confidential. We will never sell, exchange or market it.


Responsibility for ownership of the goods passes to purchaser once we have delivered them.

Unless otherwise advised, delivery will be made by An Post or by a fully-insured courier service, within normal business hours. A signature at this address may be required.

The charge for delivery will be shown at the final checkout stage before final submission. Unfortunately, KILKENNY DANCE SHOP cannot guarantee delivery times or dates. The delivery charge shown is a standard charge and does not constitute a guarantee of delivery date from the time you have placed an order.

All delivery times and dates are subject to stock availability and backlog. Unfortunately, KILKENNY DANCE SHOP can in no circumstances, therefore, compensate for delayed orders.

Damages/shortages must be notified within 3 working days of delivery.

This does not affect your statutory rights.

Our contract

When you place an order to purchase a product from KILKENNY DANCE SHOP, we will send you an e-mail confirming receipt of your order and containing the details of your order.

Your order represents an offer to us to purchase a product which is accepted by us when we send e-mail confirmation to you that we've dispatched that product to you (the "Dispatch Confirmation E-mail"). Until the D.C.E is sent all offers are 'invitation to treat' only.

That acceptance will be complete at the time we send the D.C.E to you. Any products on the same order which we have not confirmed in a D.C.E to have been dispatched do not form part of that contract.

Cancellation procedure

You are free to cancel any order before payment has been taken free of charge.

Cancellation requests must be sent to

Any transportation costs for cancelled orders must be paid by the purchaser, except in instances where the goods supplied are faulty, have been supplied in error, or miss-described by the seller. Return of cancelled order is the responsibility of the purchaser.

Orders cannot be cancelled where the goods have been altered by the purchaser in any way from the original condition. But we will always try to accommodate our customers.

This does not affect your statutory rights.

Please note that this Money Back Guarantee does not apply to products which have been open.
