The Best Mattresses in Ireland

Now that you know which one fits your budget, let’s head over to our choices for Ireland’s best mattresses!

1.   Dormeo Octasmart Plus Memory Foam Mattress

Dormeo Octasmart Plus Memory Foam Mattress

Price: €399 – €699

FIRMNESS LEVELMedium
AVAILABLE SIZESSingle (90 x 190 cm)
Double (135 x 190 cm)
King (150 x 200 cm)

Dormeo’s Octasmart Plus Memory Foam Mattress is not your usual memory foam mattress as it’s created with hundreds of 9 cm Octasprings®. This provides better ventilation, making the mattress more breathable and cooler.

One of the ‘smart’ features of the Octasmart Plus Memory Foam Mattress is that it’s made with 3 zones of varying firmness. This allows for more support for the sleeper’s shoulders and hips, enabling the spine to take its natural shape.

And in terms of firmness, this mattress is on the medium level—neither too hard nor too soft. It’s also anti-mould, anti-bacterial, and anti-dust mite and comes with a 15-year limited warranty.

Moreover, if you’re still unsure if this mattress is worth the price, Dormeo provides 60 days for you to try it out. However, you’ll have to cover the cost of returning the mattress to them if you’re not satisfied with your purchase.

Pros

  • 100% recyclable
  • Free shipping
  • 15-year limited warranty
  • More breathable than pure memory foam
  • Extensive mattress collection

Cons

  • Need to return mattress at your own expense
  • Shorter trial period compared to others on list

2.   Emma Original Mattress

Emma Original Mattress

FIRMNESS LEVELMedium
AVAILABLE SIZESSingle (90 x 190 x 25 cm)
Double (135 x 190 x 25 cm)

Proudly made in Ireland, Emma’s Original Mattress is recommended by Which? and The Allergy Clinic. In fact, it even won the T3 Award (mattress category) in 2019 and 2020.

For a cooler sleep, this mattress’s topmost layer is made up of breathable Airgocell foam which is an open-pored foam. Furthermore, it comes with a humidity-regulating elastic cover, so you won’t have to buy another mattress topper or protector.

Layered underneath this is their visco-elastic memory foam which contours to the sleeper’s body. Additionally, it’s also a good choice for couples—particularly if your partner turns a lot in his or her sleep—due to its zero motion transfer technology.

Better yet, Emma gives their consumers more than 6 months or exactly 200 nights to try out their mattress. On top of that, aside from shipping, returning the mattress is also free.

Pros

  • 5 sizes available
  • Free shipping and return
  • 200-night trial
  • 10-year warranty
  • Friend referral benefits

Cons

  • Limited mattress collection

See a number of great reviews about Emma’s mattresses:

“Got the Emma mattress, I was having pains in my back with the previous two mattresses I bought locally. I didn’t think I’d ever have a comfortable mattress again. Wish I’d discovered Emma first!! I wake up refreshed and I look forward to going to bed at night. Got two pillows because the mattress was so good, they didn’t disappoint, absolute heaven. Everything was delivered promptly and the salespeople on the website were so helpful. I would definitely recommend to all!!” -Chris

“Excellent service and delivered on time. A very pleasant company to deal with. I would recommend Emma to anybody thinking of getting a new mattress.” -Alan

Price: €519 – €779

FIRMNESS LEVELMedium
AVAILABLE SIZESSingle (90 x 190 cm)
Double (135 x 190 cm)
King (150 x 200 cm)

Awarded as a Best Buy by Which?, Silentnight Studio Original Mattress is Silentnight’s most popular rolled mattress and is a fusion of gel and memory foam.

The main highlight of this mattress is its Geltex comfort filling which combines air-permeable foam and elastic gel. Due to Geltex’s open-cell structure, the air is able to easily pass through, providing you with a cooler sleep.

In addition, Geltex is also an ideal choice for those who particularly suffer from back pain—outperforming latex and memory foam in terms of firmness, pressure relief, and other areas. This is according to the research carried out by Silentnight together with the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan).

On the downside though, because Silentnight does not deliver outside of the UK, you’ll have to buy this mattress from their retailers in Ireland. DFS, in particular, is one store in Ireland where you can avail of the Silentnight Studio Mattress.

Pros

  • Ideal for sleepers with back problems
  • Made from anti-allergy material
  • Free delivery (DFS)
  • Extensive mattress collection

Cons

  • Does not deliver outside of the UK
  • Only 3 sizes available
  • Shorter trial period compared to others on list

Customer Reviews

FIRMNESS LEVELMedium
AVAILABLE SIZESSingle (90 x 190 cm)
Small single (75 x 200 cm)
Long single (90 cm x 200 cm)
Double (135 x 190 cm)

Tempur’s Original Luxe mattress is part of Tempur’s Original range, and one of its main differences compared to its two other counterparts (Supreme and Elite) is its depth: 30 cm. It also comes with a QuickRefresh™ cover that’s washable at up to 60 degrees Celsius, allowing you to kill off bacteria more effectively.

This mattress is made using the TEMPUR® Material that was originally made for NASA’s astronauts. Made in Denmark, the Tempur Original Luxe is designed to respond to your body’s shape, weight, and temperature.

Another perk with choosing Tempur is the variety of their mattresses’ sizes—you can purchase the Original Luxe in 10 different sizes (6 standard sizes and 4 special sizes).

Moreover, Tempur provides a 10-year guarantee and a 100-night trial period.

We recommend that you purchase this in other stores in Ireland that sell Tempur mattresses because Tempur does not ship large items to off-shore UK. You can check out Caseys which delivers nationwide for €49.

  • Available in 3 depths
  • Offers instalment payment (both Caseys and Tempur)
  • Extensive mattress collection

Customer Reviews

Here are some reviews from their previous customers:

“The best mattress and pillows we have ever slept on. Supportive but also lovely and soft. We spent years on a bad mattress and both myself and my husband regularly woke up with back and hip pain. That disappeared instantly the first night we slept on The Fitzwilliam. It is such a comfortable mattress we look forward to going to bed every night. Worth every penny and the service is excellent.

“Having suffered a slipped disc I really needed to look at my day and night body posture & set up. I purchased the Fitzwilliam mattress and some pillows. After recently paying a chunk of money for a “good” mattress in a high street store I was loathed to go again but the “good” mattress just failed my expectations. The Fitzwilliam double mattress just blew me away, the fit was perfect from Day One and my partner took to it as well – we have never looked back. The mattress has both comfort and strength and makes it so easy both to get into bed and get up. I also sometimes take afternoon rests on the bed and the mattress has great support for those moments also.”

How to Choose the Right Mattress

For better sleep and better savings, you can follow the tips below as you search for the right mattress:

1. Bed size

Know the size of your bed first to ensure you purchase the right mattress size be it single, double, king size, or some other special size.

2. Type of mattress

Ultimately, the right kind of mattress for you will be based on your preference or needs. Some prefer the feel of a spring mattress, while others prefer the effect memory foam has on them.

The following is a brief description of some of the mattresses sold in the market:

Memory foam – This was originally created as aircraft cushions. This type of foam contours to a person’s body but goes back to its original form once the person gets up.

Innerspring – This is also known as a coil mattress. This is the ideal choice if you like your bed with a bouncy feel. Innerspring mattresses are supported by coils and the larger the number of coils, the more support.

Gel – This type of mattress has an identical feel to memory foam. However, while some may complain about the warm temperature of traditional memory foam, gel is used to alleviate this.

Latex – Derived from a tree (natural latex, not synthetic latex), this is the type of mattress for people who prefer more natural products. It’s another mattress that’s similar to memory foam but doesn’t retain heat as much.

Hybrid – This type of mattress is a combination of foam and spring. Therefore,  you can get the feel of both mattress types.

3. Customer service

Aside from the mattress itself, you’ll need to take into consideration other factors such as shipping, trial period, and return policy of the mattress’s manufacturer.

Know if delivery is free so you can save more money. Also, because your brand of choice may not deliver in Ireland, you can look up retailers in the country that also sells that brand.

Meanwhile, not all manufacturers give the same trial period. More importantly, not all cover the expenses of returning a mattress should you decide not to continue using it.
