  1. Megan D’Arcy

    My nephew is THRILLED with this!

  2. Lorna Fitzpatrick

    Absolutely thrilled with this Junior Garda costume, excellent quality & attention to detail, generous in size. Lucy went above & beyond to ensure I received it on time for my son’s birthday during the busy Christmas period! Well packaged with a lovely personalised note for his birthday. He was over the moon with it (along with the fantastic Garda cap & badge)… he genuinely thinks it is a real Garda costume! He hasn’t taken it off since & is going around solving crimes, arresting everyone & throwing them in jail! 🙂 Am so tempted to buy a bundle next! Would highly recommend!!!

  3. Catherine

    The quality of this uniform is incredible and Lucy was so efficient with posting.

  102. Mandy Griffin

    Thanks so much Lucy for making sure our outfit arrived on time for our wee man’s 4th birthday. The outfit is amazing and great to finally have a Garda specific uniform rather than police. Very well made and strong material that will wear and wash well. We had bought the hat a few weeks earlier and its a perfect replica of the real deal. Thanks so much, our guard loving now 4 year old was delighted.

    Blown away by the quality of the Garda costume. I was expecting great things, after hearing they were lovely, and I was not disappointed. They really are special and I can’t wait for my daughter’s face to light up when she opens it on Christmas morning. I know it will be a treasured item that will be passed on to her younger siblings. I couldn’t recommend this product or small business
    highly enough. I will definitely be back for more.

  114. Eimear Power

    The quality and detail is incredible!

  115. Ciara

    Adorable costume. My 3 year old loves it

  116. Lyndsay

    Really high quality. Is definitely going to last a long time in the dress up box. Would like if it was navy like the Garda cap.

  117. Aisling

    Absolutely delighted with this. Such amazing quality, hasn’t been taken off since it arrived. Thanks so much 😊

  118. Clíona

    Purchased size 3/4 for my 3.8 year old son. Was very concerned about the sizing as he would size up quite a bit in shops. I needn’t have worried however as the sizes have plenty of room for growth. He is mad about Gardaí so between the outfit and the online templates he has been busy handing out tickets to all 😁. Ours is fairly new but the quality on first impressions is great.

  119. Anonymous

    Lucy, everything is perfect. From the costume to the downloads, my little Irish-speaking garda loves it all. And if I could rate your service, it world be 6 out of 5! GRMA!

  120. Louise

    Wow I can’t get over the quality. My daughter is soon to be 4 and i was thrilled that they are generously sized. She spent the entire day dressed up and still wanted to wear it to bed.

  121. Laura

    I’m so happy with all three costumes I ordered. They are great quality and so realistic. I’m looking forward to my little ones having lots of fun and getting many wears out of them!

  122. Eleanor

    Just beautiful quality, has been worn since it arrived

  123. Marius R.

    Great quality garda uniform
    And also thank you for the nice message on the card
    I highly Recommend

  124. Emma

    My son absolutely adores the Garda costume. He is 6 and wearing the 5-6, it’s a bit big on him as he is slim but comfortable. It also washes really well.

  125. Mark

    Unbelievable quality my nephew was delighted with it for his birthday

  126. Catherine B.

  127. Sherry Buckley

    There are fab. The quality in each uniform is fantastic- good in size also. My 5yr old nephew was so proud to wear this Garda uniform

    Loved the quality of this costume! It is adored in our house and the little imagination packs that have been created for you to download to expand the fun are incredible!

  136. Geraldine

    Delivery was quick .Whilst it was good quality I felt it was overpriced for 2 small items. Sizing is very generous.

  137. Linda F.

    Wonderful service & incredible quality

  138. Kate

    Great customer service and beautiful quality product.

  139. Ruth Byrne

    Fantastic Quality and so realistic

  140. Noreen

    I ordered the Garda dress up outfit for my nephew for Christmas as Santa was bringing a battery operated police motor bike. I was only supposed to get the top and bottoms but he wouldn’t have been a real guard without the hat as well. He was over the moon when he opened his package. It was wrapped so well and the add on resources have given our new Sargent (as he has stripes hours of fun.) It was so easy to order il definitely be back to order more and have raved about it to anyone that will listen.

  141. Rachel

    The uniform arrived today and it’s beautiful!! Amazing quality! And wrapped lovely ? thanks so much my nephew is just going to be so so excited when he opens it and I’m sure in a couple years my own little man is going to inherit it, so delighted with it.

  142. Elaine

    I recently purchased the Garda uniform & hat for my 4 year old son. I cannot express how fantastic they both are! They are extremely realistic & are beautifully made. We will have one very happy little boy on Christmas morning! Highly recommend.

  143. Aoife K

    The costume is gorgeous and so beautifully made, I know my little boy will be thrilled telling us all what to do! He’s Garda obsessed ever since one did a safety talk in his crèche, he will be so thrilled on Christmas morning.

  144. Eden

    Garda Síochána Costume Dress up toys are always a big hit in our house every year and get put into the dress up wardrobe-for those rainy days or just when the mood strikes.

  145. Sinead McKenna

    I bought the Garda uniform and hat for my son this Christmas. The uniform is of a high quality and extremely realistic. It was a big hit Christmas morning and he wore it for the majority of the holidays. While it is more expensive than the usual garda costumes available online there is no comparison and it is worth every cent it as it will last a lifetime.

  146. Stefan Hamilton

    I bought this with the cap for our 5 year old son for Christmas. The detail really is impressive and the quality is absolutely fantastic.
    The customer service has been exceptional from advice, ordering and follow-up. A big thank you for all your help Mermaids and Dragons.
    Most importantly though, my son was delighted with it on Christmas morning and is still wearing it.

  147. Alex Bacik

    This uniform, and the accompanying hat, look brilliant on my four year old daughter, who has wanted to be a Garda since meeting one a few months back. It had sturdy blue trousers with an elastic waist, and the jacket has three brass buttons, a belt and epaulets. The Garda insignia on the chest looks like the real thing, and the quality overall is very good. It feels like it’s been hand made by a proper tailor from decent material. It’s been made to last, and is definitely worth the extra money when compared with cheap, low quality dress up stuff I’ve got from supermarkets or online. Recommended.

  148. Kieran G

    The uniform was for my four year old grandson, he was absolutely delighted with it, he immediately put it on and started arresting people, clamping cars and searching for clues.

    He insisted on wearing it every day during the Christmas break.

    It is extremely realistic looking and is made from very high quality materials and to an excellent level of workmanship.

  149. Edwina K

    I have bought my son the Garda uniform plus the hat for Christmas and I cannot believe the quality of both items. I know it seems more expensive but when I put together all the money I’ve spent on police uniform in the last year that the buttons fell off or the hat fell apart it is by far more reasonable and works out so more cheaper in the long run as this uniform will be passed down for many years. I would 100% recommend this shop and not only is the quality of the costume fantastic but the customer service is exceptional. I cannot thank them enough as they went above and beyond for me especially on the Garda hat. The delivery was on time and packaged so nicely. I will be back to buy more from here and I know my son will be over the moon on Christmas morning as this is the best uniform I have purchased yet as my son wears nothing else only dress up costume and I know this will make his Christmas. Thank you again to mermaidsanddragons and I will be buying again soon.
