Cathal O’Keeffe:

Myself and my brother have both used Dorian Black for our weddings. Our friends too. I first visited the store in Balbriggan where I was met by Thomas (no relation). I bought my first suit at Dorian Black with Thomas and I followed him to the Anne st. store. Extremely professional and immensely talented. I've met the other staff here and everyone is so encouraging, confident, knowledgeable and never put pressure on you to purchase. The goal is bringing to life what you have in mind and the focus is you. Highly recommended.

Stuart Duffy:

Superb, friendly staff very classy service. Amazing range of suits. Needed something last minute for a wedding and the guys couldn't have been more helpful, from fitting to alterations, the whole lot was taken care of. Highly recommended and will definitely be back.

James Larkin:

We got suits for our recent wedding from dorian black,everything about the suits and lads from the shop was perfect.Would 100% use dorian black again and highly recommend them to others.

Darren Griffin:

I got my Suits for my wedding in Here, All the staff ( Especially Kevin) were so helpful and did everything that I asked of them, From picking out the suits + accessories and organising the fittings it was all done professionally and with a smile and friendly attitude, I would recommend these guys to anyone looking to get there wedding suits.

William Ogeard:

Just great ! Very helpful, professional, welcoming and nice staff. Took my measurement so my suit fits perfectly. The price is also very reasonable for great quality. They have a lot of choices and accessories. Will buy more in the future.

I would just like to say a big thank you to Maria in the Balbriggan store for looking after myself and my groomsmen on the lead up to my wedding. Maria was so attentive and experienced in what she does.

We felt like we were in good hands with Maria, from first meeting right through to suit collection, Maria went out of her way to help in any way and it was a pleasure to deal with her. I would highly recommend Dorian Black for anyone looking for a suit for any occasion.

I cannot recommend Dorian Black enough. I made a grooms appointment in Balbriggan and Maria was my expert. The room is lovely, they provide drinks, it’s very comfy, lots of space and privacy, and a huge array of suits.

I’m a transman and so suits can be tricky with fitting and alterations and also feeling unsafe or judged. Maria didn’t bat an eye. She was welcoming, open and happy to do any alterations as needed. She made me feel safe, looked after me and I did not feel judged at all.

I wasn’t sure what I wanted and Maria was excellent at showing me the options, discussing the process, and being honest with what looked good and what didn’t. She pinned it perfectly and when I went in for my follow-up the suit was even better. No further alterations needed at all.

I never felt rushed at all, even on a busy Saturday. And I actually missed my follow up appointment due to car issues and a blown tyre. They were so understanding and happy to accommodate me with fitting me in.

Maria went above and beyond, was so patient and my suit looks unreal. It’s so comfy and I can’t wait to wear it.

If I need another suit in the future I will not be going anywhere else!

Thank you again Maria!!

Can't thank Dorian Black enough for the suits for our wedding, they were amazing to deal with from the start to finish, a massive shout out to Maria in particular who went above and beyond at every step to make sure we were looking our best. She picked up our wedding half way through the process and was nothing short of fantastic. I had groomsmen in the UK who would only be able to attend a first fitting some months out and a final fitting just one day before the wedding and Maria had us all accomadated to get measured up for the perfect fit. Even perfectly measuring one groomsmen off photos who would miss his final fitting. There was no shortage of advice and options and we had countless compliments on the day for how well the suits looked.

I recently chose another suit from Dorian Black in Balbriggan, they really have wonderful quality and selection of suits but what sets them apart is their service levels, there is a separate "grooms room" upstairs and Cathy, Frank and the team take as much time as you need to get you fitted, great craic and hopspitality, I would thoroughly recommend Dorian Black

Just collect our suits for my wedding in a couple of weeks and to say I am happy is an understatement, Not only is the quality of their suits top notch but what is huge plus is the customer service and attention to detail provided by Maria.
Maria made the whole process so easy and enjoyable. On this alone I will be using Dorian Black for all my future suit purchases and recommend them to everyone..

Great selection of a wide range of different suits. I got a three piece Celtic Tweed suit here for my wedding which was very unique. All alterations were carried out in good time and I was very happy with the end product and the help myself and my two groomsmen got from Mary during our appointments. Would definitely recommend for quality of suits and in store assistance.

Dorian Black were amazing to us in the run up to our wedding. The customer service was first class. We were not really sure why we wanted when we landed into Cathy, Alan and Edel but they soon sorted that out. They quickly whittled down what we wanted and provided us with an excellent service, accommodating us at every opportunity. Ian, his Groomsmen and my Dad all looked handsome on our very special day. Thank you most sincerely for looking after us so well and making the whole experience so enjoyable, Mr & Mrs Wilde!

We were looked after by Alan and Kim in Balbriggan. Alan had a great eye for the jacket styles and kim was so great with bow ties and pulling together the overall black tie look we were going for, and they were able to pick age appropriate styles for the Dads as well as the grooms party. I would have no hesistation in recommending them. Great selection of styles, great service and great value.

We went to Dorian Black on the recommendation of my Brother who used them for his suits last year. I was part of the Bridal party that day and we had no hesitation in going to them for our Suits when it came to our wedding. The service we got from Alan, Kim and the team was fantastic.
They were so flexible when it came to fitting the party in for fittings and they even stayed back after hours one Saturday so that one member of the party flying in from London could be looked after.
The suits looked fantastic on the day and they drew great compliments from the guests. Anything that required alteration was altered and everything fitted just perfect.
We have no hesitation in recommending Grooms to get their suits from Dorian Black. Don't even waste your time going anywhere else as you wont get the quality or service that you get in Dorian Black. Thank you again to all in Dorian Black

Prior to our own wedding, we were part of a bridal party and it was at this time that we were introduced to Dorian Black. We had come across their suits at a wedding fair in the RDS and thought they were by far the nicest on the catwalk.

During the consultations and fittings, both Thomas and Frank were always there to provide the bridal party with helpful feedback. The service was great - especially considering 2 of the 4 groomsmen were abroad and measurements / last minute alterations (2 days before the wedding!) had to be made. Needless to say, the finished product was great and everyone looked the part.

On the back of that experience, it was an easy decision to go with them when it came to our own wedding a year later. Once again, the whole experience was brilliant.

Since both weddings, I've gone back to get more suits. A brilliant shop with excellent service from Thomas (and Frank). Highly recommended.

We bought the grooms suit from Dorian Black and rented the groomsmen's suits from there also. The lady that looked after us was Kim and I have to say that she was excellent. She gave my husband so many ideas and encouraged him to try different styles until he was happy he had found the right suit. They have a very professional and friendly approach and have great knowledge and advice about all of their products. They have lots of suits to choose from and some very contemporary styles I would definitely recommend Dorian Black to anyone.

Hi there,

I just wanted to compliment a member of your staff in the Anne's Lane

I am not sure of his name but he helped myself and my son on Tuesday 22nd
April. We were looking for a small size blazer for confirmation, and
though they didn't stock them there, he measured my son and enquired with
the Balbriggan head office as to availability. The staff member there took
photos of 2 jackets and we were shown them on the computer screen.

We travelled to Balbriggan the following day and bought a blazer. I really
felt the sales person in Anne's Lane went out of his way to be helpful
without there being any gain for him. Well done!

I heard about Dorian Black locally and saw the shop while out walking. They were very easy to do business with and supplied a brilliant service. The groom felt great in his uniquely tailored suit and Dorian Black followed through on all their promises to us as a wedding party. I really don’t see what Dorian Black could do to improve their service; everything was perfect for our big day. I will certainly recommend Dorian Black to anyone I know getting married.

We had a fantastic experience with Dorian Black. We were buying suits for all shapes and sizes for our wedding and had to call into Cathy a lot. She was attentive, professional and a pleasure to deal with each and every time. The suits were a perfect fit for everyone and great quality, all the lads have even said they won't go anywhere else again when buying a suit. Very reasonable prices and completely stress free, we would recommend Dorian Black to everyone.

We really mean every word.

Dorian Black were amazing to work with. They had endless patience and time to accommodate my picky groom and his even pickier groomsmen.
Cathy and Frank kitted us out with everything from shirts to shoes, they even sourced the most perfect dickie bows for our two little ring bearers that co-ordinated perfectly with their linen suits.

We travelled from the North for fittings and they were extremely accommodating and flexible in terms of when they could see us, keeping the shop open late on a Saturday and through the week, this really helped, as trying to organise times to suit five men can be very difficult. Their tailors were superb; alterations were done skilfully and with huge attention to detail which really enhanced the fit of the suits on all the guys. All six suits fitted perfectly and looked amazing..

They were always at the other end of the phone or email providing excellent customer service and advice. The focus wasn’t just on the men but they offered great advice as to what was in style and what would compliment the overall tone of the wedding, their thoughtfulness and care made getting our suits a pleasure and I would recommend anyone North or South of the border to avail of their services.
