Product & Stock

We follow a made-to-order model. Made-to-order fashion means that clothes are made only when they are ordered. It is a more ethical and sustainable approach because there is no overproduction and reduces the risk of excess stock. This means your order may take a little longer than usual.

Unfortunately, we don’t yet offer customised tailoring for customers who purchase our seasonal garments. However, this service is available exclusively for brides and will be discussed during your consultation which you can book here.

All of our garments are manufactured in Ireland. We are working towards making everything in-house at Aoife’s Cottage, Adare.

It is important to be mindful of how you care for your garment to ensure its longevity. Generally, we recommend hand washing or dry cleaning where possible. Check the product descriptions for specific information and advice regarding each material.

This depends on the garment. Limited edition pieces will not be restocked but all other products are. You can input your email address to get notified when the product you like is back in stock.


Aoife Mc Namara follows a pre-order model for the new season 9 collection. Pre-order is a slower, more sustainable approach to production, as only the amount of pieces purchased will be produced. This means that your delivery can take a little longer to arrive. It generally takes 2-4 weeks to make your garment, this can vary depending on the garment. Please allow additional time when you order, for this. But, trust us, it’s worth the wait! 

It is then shipped with GLS couriers and tracked. Once shipped, delivery within Ireland takes 2-3 working days. The UK takes 3-5 working days, and the rest of the world takes 7-10 working days.working days. UK takes 3-5 working days, and the rest of the world takes 7-10 working days.

Aoife Mcnamara offers free tracked delivery in Ireland, and international delivery is €20.
