Alright lads,

im on the lookout for a good quality shaving brush and am looking for advice.

Im in Ireland, but dont worry, we have a postal service  Biggrin

Im looking to spend in and around $200 or 150ish euro.

Not sure if it makes any difference, but i use a shaving scuttle for lathering up. 

I look forward to the replies

Check out Black Anvil Shaving. He makes awesome brushes and is in Ireland.

Black Anvil is a wonderful option.  Another favorite artisan of mine is Leonidam Shaving  Brushes,  but their final price with knot is closer to 200-ish euro, depending on the handle selection. 

You could also consider Shavemac 2 band badger brushes.  Another option would be to order a handle from an American artisan (Chisel & Hound, Turn n Shave, Wild West Brushworks, etc) and have a knot installed poat delivery as no one ships badger knots from the US to overseas that I know of.

Mr Watson,
You cannot go wrong with any brush made by Paladin Shaving here in the States!

Greetings to Ireland!
Why not look for a decent brush much closer to your shores?
Do check out what Simpson has to offer. My preferred hair is Manchurian, which will be north of your budget. Maybe have a look at shavenook’s buy&sell pages, too.

Your budget will easily buy a decent brush from Shavemac. Lots of handle shapes, colours and hair.
Ordering a brush from the US will most probably cost tax and customs on top.
Brushes from Europe not.

Another outstanding brush maker from this continent I would like to recommend is Thaeter.

I currently have a Simpson brush, not an expensive one mind, but I can't stand it, I find it best impossible to get a decent lather with it unless I use a ton of shaving cream.

I've emailed the Irish chap, black anvil and looking into buying one off him

Have you tried a good boar brush? Very inexpensive and extremely utilitarian. 
Semogue has a great selection of them. 
They also offer some very good 2-Band brushes if you don't like boar. 

As Wim has suggested, the Chubby 2 synthetic is a very nice option. 

It all depends on what you are looking for in a brush. Too many options to choose from. 
Good luck.
