For Irish home owners living in the Dublin vicinity, there is an abundance of options available when it comes to looking for suitable Bathroom websites. Dublin has many renowned companies with a strong online presence to showcase their bathroom catering services.

Below we have reviewed some of the best bathroom websites in Dublin that you  should check out when looking at renovating or indeed kitting out a new bathroom.  Our scores were based on 1.  Ease of Navigation, 2. Range of products or bathroom ideas, 3. Existence of a regularly updated blog and 4. How easy it is to find contact details (Call to Action).

Website Score: 9/10
Ideal Bathrooms & Tiles was our favourite out of all these bathroom providers, expanding the customer’s choice by providing them with a broader range of products on display including:- bathroom accessories, bathtubs, shower systems, radiators and even shower trays.

The site was easy to navigate and had strong calls to action. The phone number was prominent on every page. The reason for the low score was it’s limited range of bathrooms to view,  with only eleven products showcased by the company.  There did not appear to be a blog associated with the site.

I hope you found the reviews useful when choosing where to purchase your bathroom sanitary ware, tiles and accessories and especially for getting ideas for different types of layouts and designs.  Make sure to get as many prices as you can to compare prices.  When getting prices make sure you are comparing like with like as there is a huge variation in prices for different brands.  You would expect the more expensive brands and ranges to be longer lasting but it’s not always the case so get a number of plumbers to quote for the job and ask them for recommendations on better lasting brands to help make your decision.
