About Us

The Balloon Man & The Balloon Lady Limited was established in 1987 by Directors Spencer Simmonds & Alan Simmonds. Since September 2005 Alan Simmonds solely acquired the Balloon Man business.


Having seen opportunities to strengthen the portfolio with new products and services, the Balloon Man, now, in 2011 is firmly established as the No. 1 Corporate Balloon Promotional Company in Ireland.

With the expansion of the Balloon Man Party Store the Balloon Man saw a further opportunity in the market for a niche fancy dress business (where there was a lot of fancy dress hire only, and with the advent of cheaper pre-packaged costumes) the Fancy Dress Store was born.


Welcome to our new re-launched site, we decided to have a facelift – what do you think! Fancy new logo and fancy new website, you can now view our entire fancy dress and costume accessory inventory online.


We want to help you find the perfect outfit to make sure you have the best time. No need to hire anymore, costumes are great value and much more cost effective than hiring any fancy dress outfit.


Director, Mr Alan Simmonds has been in the business for the past 25 years so we think we know what we’re talking about. Recently commenting on the decision to re-launch and rebrand their consumer online website, Director, Alan Simmonds added


In the last 4 years we have seen significant year to year business growth,” (see press release).
