I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending The Alteration Rooms.  The work they do is impeccable and there is always a cheery welcome and a bit of a chat.  Nothing is too much trouble.


Fantastic service by a very professional, friendly and helpful staff in Clare, Gerry & Pauline. Would highly recommend the Alteration Rooms! Another bonus is free parking!

I would highly recommend The Alteration Rooms for altering any wedding dress, or any other pieces of clothing. I went for a couple of fittings before my wedding, and Claire always made sure to give me an appointment that suited me best. She is very friendly, always made me feel welcome and calm and has a lovely relaxed atmosphere at her fitting rooms. She did an absolutely amazing job fixing my website dress, which was way too long and one or two sizes too big. There is nothing she can’t do. And her work is very accurate.

In a word? Phenomenal!
I have to say, I had a great experience with this company from start to finish. They excelled at customer service with what seemed to be an unconscious effort. By that I mean, it was effortless.

I can’t say enough about the great customer service and quality service I received at The Alteration Rooms in Shankill. The work was high quality and professional and the customer service was effortless. This is my new go to tailors! I have to give 5 stars! Phenomenal!

Since discovering The Alteration Rooms a couple of years ago,  I would have no hesitation in recommending Gerry and Claire to any potential new customer. In fact, I have already encouraged many friends to make a call with their alterations needs.

The service offered by Gerry and Claire is nothing short of excellent – embracing professional workmanship, reliability and customer satisfaction. Friendly and helpful service every time.


This business punches way above its weight. Top quality service. Friendly and efficient team. Very reasonable rates. Wouldn’t consider going anywhere else.

The service I received in the Alteration rooms was brilliant ..I was on the verge of buying another wedding dress as the size and stitching was just not right but Claire worked her magic and fixed the dress like it was handmade just for me!! Any fittings and visits I had were all so relaxed and professional..
Thanks again for making my day so special with your amazing alteration skills..

To the fabulous team Claire and Gerry who looked after me and my big dress dilemma a massive thank you!!

I called  Clare to tell her I had ordered a dress online, and needed help last minute. The ball I was going was in two days!! Nothing was too much trouble. Clare helped me and made feel really secure that she would be able to do it in time. The dress itself was so badly made she had a tough job ahead of her!! Claire you are a super person and so talented at what you do.. don’t ever stop. The dress was perfect!!!

Gerry for going to the trouble of finding me the best dry cleaners who were able to also take the oil stains from where the dress came from I thank you both again.

I will be recommending you to all my friends and I will most definitely be back. Not with the same dress!!

Best wishes to you both and wishing you every success.


I have been a customer of The Alteration Rooms since they opened in 2012. It is used by myself and our extended family and we have always found them to be most accommodating with an excellent standard of workmanship. We have recommended this family business to many of our friends without complaint. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone.

The Alteration Centre are an absolute pleasure to deal with. The quality of their work and their service is second to none.  I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone that is looking for alternations to their clothes.
