Postal Services to Ireland

Many would consider sending post and parcels to Ireland to be as simple as sending items within Great Britain. This is just not the case! When sending to the Republic of Ireland, post and parcels are treated as overseas mail and must be correctly labeled as such.


Facts about Ireland

Facts about Ireland

In the early part of 2015 the Republic of Ireland introduced a postcode system. The new system, called Eircode, enables people and businesses to effectively find an address in Ireland. Prior to this over 35% of addresses in Ireland shared an address with at least one other property, making it difficult for those delivery goods.

The Eircode has been put in place to avoid this problem. Unlike other countries where postcodes define a group of addresses, the Eircode is assigned to each residential and business address to help avoid confusion upon delivery.

The Eircode is not the only change to have taken part in Ireland. According to a 2014 study by ZenithOptimedia, Ireland is the country that has seen the fastest integration into daily life of tablets, smartphones and IP-TV. 50 % of Irish people will have access to these media in 2015 compared to just 21 % in 2011. No other country has seen an increase of this magnitude. The trend is being supported by the Irish government, which is investing in providing tablets to schools. These efforts are also designed to motivate parents to purchase tablets.
