Book Covering Service: please note that if a book belongs to a set, we only cover the book and not the workbook.

All School Account orders under €200 will be subject to a charge of €6.99 per delivery. School account customers may also use the Store Pick-up option when available.

Order Supply & Substitution

Where possible we will supply item colours/styles/manufacturer as requested. However, on occasion, we may need to substitute your item preference. The substituted item supplied will be of the same quality, item description, and price.

Schoolbook Online Orders

During the months of June, July and August, we receive an exceptionally high volume of online orders for school supplies. During this time, these orders can take between 3-5 working days to fulfil.

Once your order is placed, we will endeavour to pick your order within the following 24-48 hours.

You will receive regular email updates at each step of the way, as your order moves through our online processing procedure, from order confirmation, to order processing, and through to despatch.

If you choose the home delivery option, you will receive a separate email from our courier partners once they pick up your package from us. This email will contain a link, allowing you track your parcel. Changes to the order cannot be made once it has been despatched.


You can cancel any online order placed with O’Mahony’s Booksellers provided that the order has not yet been dispatched.

We use An Post for all orders within Ireland. Overseas orders will be shipped via courier or An Post.

An Post delivers between 9am and 5pm Monday to Friday and will make one attempt to deliver your parcel.

Shortages & Damages

Any shortage and/or damaged items must be reported within 24 hours of delivery via email to our websales team. O’Mahony’s will not be responsible for any shortage and/or damaged items not reported within 24 hours and by the advised method.

Returns Policy

If you are dissatisfied for any reason, you may return your purchase within 14 days for a refund (delivery and/or book covering charges will not be refunded). Goods need to be in original packaging and in a saleable condition (with any seals and shrink-wrap intact). eBooks - any title now sold with a free eBook code, cannot be returned if the code has been removed, scratched or accessed.

The returned parcel must include the original order number with your contact details (the order number is the 6-digit number at the top left-hand side of your invoice). We recommend that you use a recorded delivery service, as we cannot be responsible for the non-delivery of returned items.

Whilst every effort is made to ensure that the correct products are delivered to you, occasionally mistakes can happen, in this event please email our websales team detailing the issue along with the order number.

If you require additional items, a new order will need to be placed on our website.

Cancellation or return of items purchased with a coupon may result in the forfeiture of such coupons.

By purchasing from O’Mahony’s, you agree that a full refund with paid delivery will be your sole and exclusive remedy for any product you receive that is not as described on the O’Mahony’s website, and you waive all other remedies or actions in such event. This does not affect your statutory rights.

Coupon Codes

From time to time, we may offer customers a coupon code. A maximum of one coupon may be used per order and a coupon may only be used once. The full coupon amount should be used - no refunds will be given for partial use. Coupon codes must be used before the expiry date and can be used only on the categories specified for that particular coupon. Coupons cannot be redeemed for cash or credit.
