Anyone with recommendations for where to acquire wood burning (or multi-file) stoves in NI?

Quick google search highlights Mourne fires & The stove yard but guess I'm looking for people's experiences, places with competitive fitting costs etc?

    Ards fireplaces. I got a multifuel stove from them and was good service.

    I was not impressed with the stove yard, too keen and pushy on my first visit for information!

    Maurice Phillips in Ballymena. Knows his stuff that's for sure. Fitters top notch, clean tidy workers.

    I Highly recommend you talk to them before you choose who to go with. Had ours a year now and love it. I only burn kiln dried wood in it and provides loads of long lasting heat.

    Just had one fitted last week from the Stove Yard in Newtownards. Wouldn't say it was either good or bad service. I saw the stove i wanted and bought it. I found prices to be the same online as what they sold them for. The variations in prices are in the fitting.

    Maurice provided good advice on the best stove for my house and the fitters did a great job with the installation.

    Seriously (notwithstanding those mentioned above) but some of the people selling these things are the biggest rip off merchants going, be very careful!

    I highly recommend Natural Home Interiors, Dundrum Road just outside Newcastle.

    I priced for mine everywhere, spent weeks at it, and these people came in at almost half the nearest price and did a fantastic job.

    Don't be fooled by their basic website, they're a small family business and Paul the owner does the fitting himself. Thoroughly professional, competent, courteous and reliable outfit.

    Took away the old open fire and back/base, opened the fireplace, fitted the new 8.4kW stove, retaining the original fire surround, new internal black metal cavity, flue and all black granite base and hearth... less than £2k all in!

    Don't buy anywhere else until you're had a chat and a quote, honestly you're throwing money away!, I couldn't have gotten a better job done at ANY price!

    Best decision I ever made!
  • Thanks for all the feedback folks - agree its a bit of a minefield. Went to several places today - the first place advised that is was impossible to give a quote until they had removed my fireplace to see what was involved.

    Other places offered to send someone out to assess the recess etc and give a written quote. Most of the actual wood burners are similar price.

    Literally just placed an order today for a Morso 04 stove from The Stove Yard. They have a price guarantee and they were the cheapest I could find between looking across 5 or 6 shops.

    Only down side it will be 6 weeks before its installed!

    £2600 all in
