Groceries Delivered

When we first moved to Ireland we didn’t own a car. That time we still lived in Dublin — close to many supermarkets. We were able to walk to most of the stores but we were restricted in how much we could buy and carry home. So I was very happy when I’ve found out about the delivery service.

If you are living in Ireland you surely noticed the Tesco vans driving around. To shop at Tesco online store you will have to register first. Once you have done that, login at their website to shop. The items that are shown online are usually all available at the store nearby. The system will check the stock at the branch from where you will receive the groceries. You can download the app, too, if you prefer to do your online shopping that way.

Time of delivery depends on opening hours of your local Tesco shop. In our case, we can receive deliveries between 9am and 11pm on weekdays and 9am and 5pm on Sunday. The cost will depend on the booked time slot as well as on the day of the week — currently (June 2017) between €3 and €7.

When we were still in Dublin I have ordered from Superquinn, too. I loved shopping there, especially since it was the only store that offered Baker’s Yeast at that time. Since 2011 Superquinn Stores do no longer exist — In 2013 the remaining 24 were rebrand and are now called Supervalu. Supervalu also offers to deliver groceries but doesn’t have as many stores spread around the country than Tesco does. You will have to check their website to see if they offer deliveries in your area.
