With a great set of balloon options for events alongside decorator items that perfectly complement celebrations, Kimmage Party Shop is definitely a strong contender as your next go-to for all things balloons. 

Established in 2009, we appreciate that they only carry rubber balloons that are made of 100% biodegradable natural latex. We really like that they took an extra step when it comes to being environmentally conscious.

However, customers might be overwhelmed with the amount of balloon options available. Kimmage Party Shop has plain bouquet balloons, helium filled balloons with different finishes, and letter and number balloons.

In terms of their selection, Kimmage Party Shop definitely has got many bases covered.

Additionally, they have a decorator supplies category that have more unique options for helium tanks to clear deco bubble balloons. Keep in mind however, that these options can get easily sold out.

For their delivery, they do offer both click-and-collect as well as shipment options from online shopping. However, bulkier items purchased may have different shipping rates based on where you want them delivered.

We recommend checking out their website to view these prices.

Lastly, we really like that Kimmage Party Shop does have specific services dedicated to corporate events and weddings. They can help you plan and discuss different options that would best suit your vision.

If you are looking for a balloon store that has a wealth of options to choose from, we highly recommend Kimmage Party Shop.

BalloonFactory.ie is a great option out there for customers looking for an efficient and impressive delivery service combined with more distinct balloon categories.

They are an online delivery store that can cater to a wide scope of order types. However, they do have a great amount of experience in dealing with more customized and event requests, working with different formats like centerpieces and trees.

A standout for us is that they offer a lot in the category of event balloons. They have some fun bouquet options for graduation as well as festive ones for Christmas.

Another category of theirs that we highly recommend checking out is their distinct message balloons. As opposed to the standard event balloons, these kinds are targeted towards greetings and expressions like missing you or welcome home.

These options are perfect for simpler and more everyday occasions.

BalloonFactory.ie does offer another distinct package which are their gift sets consisting of balloon bouquets with appropriate celebratory items like wine and chocolates. 

However, we would advise you to check out their selection beforehand as some of these packages can be on the pricier end.

We really like that BalloonFactory.ie’s delivery service has a lot of features that make it very convenient for the buyer. Staff make sure to send photos of the item before delivery and orders placed before 2:00pm are eligible for same day delivery in Dublin.

Overall BalloonFactory.ie makes a great option for convenient delivery and distinct message balloons.


  • Excellent options for message and event balloons
  • Have a service for balloon printing 
  • Delivery service comes with a lot of convenient features
  • Experienced in handling bulk orders for events


  • Some gift sets options can be expensive
  • Difficult cancellation process for customized orders

Ordered balloons not only last minute – to be delivered the next day – but also to be delivered on the weekend! Staff were exceptionally helpful and accommodated my request with absolutely no issue at all. Would highly recommend this company for all your party balloon needs. Looking forward to using them again after the brilliant experience I had with them dealing with them for the first time. Thank you Balloon Factory. – Lauren Troy

Very Pleased with the Communication and Service

I’ve ordered from them a few times, the balloons stay up for weeks. I had one issue with one order and it was dealt with quickly and efficiently. Very pleased with the communication and service received. I will continue to use this company for all my future purchases of balloons. I would definitely recommend to family and friends. – A&J Auto Repair

Offering a more niche style of balloon presentation, Balloon in a Box definitely stands out amongst other stores in Dublin.

Although they were established more recently in 2016, we find their offering to be one of the most unique out there. Their primary selling point is that their balloon bouquets come in a box and are designed to be a surprise for the recipient to open. 

We like that it is a more creative format and makes it especially perfect for surprise occasions for that wow factor.

They also build on this by adding some very special categories. One of these categories includes stuffed balloons, in which a clear balloon contains a stuffed toy. This makes it an excellent option for packaging as a birthday surprise for children.

Aside from this, they also have customizable photo balloons where customers can add pictures with preset frames for events like mother’s day and Valentine’s day. 

Another category that makes Balloon in a Box a worthwhile option is that their birthday balloons have some familiar characters. From Paw Patrol to Frozen, customers will surely enjoy these fun features.

However, we do caution that while you can order these packages in advance, Balloon in a Box has no guarantee that it will be delivered on a specific date and time. 

Unless the purchase is marked for same day delivery, other shipments are handled by Fastway Couriers.

Regardless, if you’re looking for more unique options and ways to give gifts and balloons to your loved ones, we highly recommend Balloon in a Box.


  • Very unique and distinct packaging
  • Distinctly offers stuffed balloons and photo balloons
  • Some birthday balloons have branded characters
  • Features make it a great option for surprise gifts


  • No guarantee on the delivery date and time
  • Limited phone service

Balloons Direct is a great choice as a convenient one-stop-shop the next time you’re looking to accessorize your celebration, even with items other than balloons.

In terms of their delivery, customers will really enjoy that they offer free nationwide delivery for standard orders. They use DPD as their main courier and buyers also have the option for express delivery only costing a flat rate of €8.

This is the perfect store especially for those looking to save on various fees. However, keep in mind that Saturday or same day deliveries need to be received by 1:00 PM.  

Another thing to note about their delivery is that Monday deliveries need to be dispatched on Friday so they can arrive on Saturday. This does slightly make it confusing as to the time frame for delivery.

In both of these cases you would need to arrange for someone at the location to receive the order and be present.

We really do, however, like the amount of options that they have for balloon bouquets. They have an expansive selection of bouquet packages for different events like ones for newborn babies.

If you’re looking for an excellent selection of bouquets to choose from, we highly recommend visiting their store or website.

Additionally, what makes them a convenient store to shop at is that they offer party supplies to complete the experience. They also have sweets and food machines available for rent like chocolate fountains and sweets.

Balloons Direct truly offers hassle free purchases for balloon delivery and party items.


  • For standard orders, free nationwide delivery
  • Excellent amount of options for bouquets
  • Also offer party items like sweets and chocolate fountains
  • Great customer service


  • Monday deliveries have no definite time of delivery
  • 1:00 PM time cutoff for Saturday and same day deliveries

Barry’s Balloons is definitely our pick when it comes to larger scale balloon orders and requests.

They have over 25 years of experience in providing customers with an excellent range to choose from. What impresses us as well is that they’re very knowledgeable when it comes to working for corporate events.

They’ve previously worked with businesses such as the Bank of Ireland and even Google. If you’re looking for a balloon store that is well versed in working with company requests, we highly recommend them.

We also find their balloon options to be very suitable for gifts and deliveries. The bouquets they offer are very fun and vibrant, especially perfect for birthdays.

However, we would like to point out that some of their categories for balloons have more limited options. These categories include balloons designed for graduation, weddings and engagements. 

Still, other categories feature an excellent range with prices that cater to different budgets.

As mentioned before, Barry’s Balloons have wealth in experience when it comes to dealing with corporate events. On top of this, we really like that they can deliver more complex structures to decorate these spaces.

Examples of these structures include flower spirals and balloon walls. Customers will certainly be impressed with the design and large scale that they can accomplish.

If you’re looking for a balloon store that can help you out at your next corporate event, definitely check out Barry’s Balloons for their selection and service.


  • Wide price range for different budgets
  • Excellent bouquet options
  • Great amount of experience working with businesses
  • Can create more complex and larger balloon structures


  • Delivery cost varies with area
  • Limited options for certain categories like weddings, engagements and graduation
