After spending a small fortune on an Irish Dancing Costume, you don’t want to give it to just any dry cleaners. We specialise in cleaning Irish Dancing Costumes and understand the challenges they pose.
No two Irish dancing dresses are the same, so before we accept your dress, we will examine it and appraise you of any concerns we may have and what our considered best approach would be for your dress. Many dresses are suitable for delicate dry cleaning, whilst some others may only be suitable for a spot clean.
If your costume is suitable for dry cleaning, we will initially examine it in detail – inch by inch – on our spotting table and pre-treat all areas requiring extra attention.
Then your dress will be delicately dry cleaned. Please note that during the cleaning process any crystals, beads etc whose bond to the dress is weak, will inevitably come off. Our machine will capture all of these during the process and we will put them in to a small bag for you. This will allow you to subsequently reattach these to your costume with a glue gun.
Your dress will then be carefully pressed by a very experienced dry cleaner, whose own daughter is an Irish Dancer! Each layer is pressed separately and this is hand finished to make sure that the finished product looks great.
Each Irish dancing dress is individually priced, however they typically cost approx €50.
We are happy to do special offers for dancing schools in advance of competitions etc. Please contact us on 01 25 44 222 for more information on special deals.
