Your Account

Before you can place orders for Items using our Application, you need to open an O’Donovans Delivery account and go through the verify age process. When you open an account you may create a password, or other secure login method, and may also have to provide credit card details. You must keep any password you create, or other secure login method, secret, and prevent others from accessing your email account or mobile phone. If another person uses these methods to access your account, you will be responsible to pay for any Items they order, and we are not responsible for any other losses you suffer, unless the person using your password obtained it because we did not keep it secure.

You may close your account at any time by requesting to do so in your account section or contacting us using the contact details above. We may suspend your access to your account, or close it permanently, if we believe that your account has been used by someone else. We may also close your account if in our opinion you are abusing our Service (for example, by applying for refunds or credit to which we do not consider you are entitled, making repeated unreasonable complaints, mistreating our staff or drivers, or any other good reason). 


When you place an order through our Application, it needs to be accepted by us before it is confirmed. We will send you a notification if your order has been accepted. The contract for the supply of any Item you have ordered comes into existence when we send the Confirmation Notice. You are responsible for paying for all Items ordered using your account, and for related delivery charges, and for complying with these Terms, even if you have ordered the Item for someone else. We operate a minimum order value policy. This will be displayed on our Application. All Items are subject to availability.  


When you place an order with us, we endeavour to get the order to you within an hour.

Unfortunately, despite our best efforts, things do not always go to plan and factors such as traffic and weather conditions may prevent us from delivering your Item on time. 

We will attempt delivery at the address you provide to us when you place your order. You will not be able to change the delivery address once the order is confirmed.

You will still be charged for the Item and for delivery in the event of a failed delivery if you have caused such failure for any reason. Reasons you might cause a delivery to fail include (but are not limited to):  

  • You do not come to the door, did not pick up the phone when the driver contacted you using the contact information you have provided us and/or you picked up the phone but then failed to provide access within a reasonable amount of time.
  • The driver refuses to deliver the Item to you in accordance with section 6 (Age Restricted Products).


Age Restrictions

Our products can only be sold and delivered to persons aged 18 or over. You must first complete the age verification process before placing an order. O’Donovans Delivery operates an age verification policy whereby customers ordering must be the person whose ID is uploaded to the app, and must be the person who accepts the delivery at the door. You will be asked by the driver to provide proof that you are the person that placed the order, and to show ID at the door. The driver may refuse to deliver any product to any person unless they can provide valid photo ID proving that they are aged 18 or over. The driver may refuse to deliver alcohol to any person who is, or appears to be under the influence of either alcohol or drugs. If delivery of any age restricted product is refused, you will still be charged for the relevant Item and for delivery.


You may cancel an order without charge at any time before we start processing your order. If you wish to cancel an order before it is dispatched, please contact us immediately, via our Application. If the we confirm the order was not processed, we will refund your payment. If you cancel any order after it has been processed, you will be charged the full price for the Items, and if the driver has been despatched you will also be charged for delivery.  

O’Donovans Delivery may notify you that an order has been cancelled at any time. You will not be charged for any orders cancelled by us and we will reimburse you for any payment already made using the same method you used to pay for your order. Please note depending on bank, this may take 3-4 days to show back into your account.
