Free Nationwide Delivery

As there is unprecedented demand for our online shop we are experiencing delays to our usual next day delivery service. We are working hard to bring forward delivery dates and thank you so much for your patience.

James Whelan Butchers has been delivering meat to thousands of customers all over Ireland and the UK since 2004. Our service allows customers to order online from the comfort of their homes/offices and have our products delivered to them within 24hrs.  We handle your order with the same great care and attention to quality and food safety as we would if you buy in our shop. Your meat is custom cut, weighed and priced by our in-store butchers, packed into a temperature controlled box in a dedicated packing room, and stored in a temperature controlled environment for delivery the next day. We care about creating a special experience for all of our customers: from the ease of placing your order on our website to the exciting arrival of our products direct to your doorstep.


Our online ordering facility is open 24 hours a day, 7 day a week and orders are processed by our staff here at James Whelan Butchers shop from Monday to Friday. Once your order is processed, it will be delivered to your home within 48 hours.

Online orders include nationwide delivery free of charge for all orders over €100 (ROI and Northern Ireland). For orders under that amount, delivery costs €15 in ROI and Northern Ireland.

The temperature will remain below 4° C until you open the box.


Environmental advice for disposal of Sorba-Freeze sheets

Can Sorba-Freeze be reused?
Absolutely! Sorba-Freeze sheets can simply be refrozen and reused continuously (if no contamination has occurred from previous usage) meeting the Reduce, Reuse and Recycle guidance within waste management hierarchy.

How do I dispose of SorbaFreeze sheets?
When disposal is required the hydrated sheets can be dried out and they will return to their original dimensions minimising their volume for landfill disposal. Landfill is the only option as the three components of fabric, film and powder would require separation prior to disposal in relevant recycle sectors.

How can I help reduce the carbon footprint?
There is minimal carbon footprint during transportation to yourselves due to one small box equating to a full pallet of hydrated product.
