What to Keep In Mind When Sending a Parcel to Ireland

Here are some important things to keep in mind when sending a package to Ireland:

Major Shipping Routes

Note that in Ireland, the biggest container terminal is the famous Port of Dublin. The port is almost halfway down the East coast and accounts for nearly 50 percent of Ireland’s trade. As it is located in the heart of Ireland’s rail and road network, it is very accessible to other parts of the country. The other main container terminal in Ireland is the Port of Cork. This port is located on the South coast. Keep in mind that it is highly likely that your package will be shipped to one of these two ports before it goes by train or truck to your customer’s home.

Shipping Time Considerations

Keep in mind that between completing the paperwork and forms, perfecting your packaging, cross-border delivery, and customs clearance, it can take anywhere a few days up to a couple of weeks to get your parcel delivered to your customer in Ireland. This might not be of much concern if you are flexible, and the package does not need to arrive on an exact date.²

Cost Considerations

You may know that imported items in Ireland are often overpriced on the local market. In addition, this is often true when it comes to imported alcohol, a few brands of chocolates, and electronics. You should, however, also consider the total costs of International shipping, insurance, packaging, and taxes or duties.


If you use Royal Mail to ship your products to Ireland, your shipping company will help you through the customs process. As a result, you will not have to tackle all the complex paperwork on your own. Note that you will have to create a comprehensive inventory of all the goods that you are bringing into Ireland, and you should be as specific and accurate as possible.

If Irish customs officials have any uncertainties or doubts about what is coming into their country, then they have the legal right to open as well as physically inspect your package. Taxes and customs duties often depend on where you are shipping from.³

How to Send a Parcel to Ireland

Step 1: Addressing Your Parcel

Ireland has had a new 7-digit postcode system since 2015. Note that this postcode must appear in the line 2nd from the last in your customer’s address, right above the destination word “IRELAND.”⁵

Step 2: Restricted and Prohibited Items

The typical prohibitions and restrictions are applicable when sending a package to Ireland. This includes prohibitions on narcotics and live animals and restrictions on passports and cash.

Step 3: Customs

You do not have to pay customs duties for sending parcels to Ireland from an EU country, such as the United Kingdom, and no specific paperwork is needed. However, there are a few exceptions to this, including Gibraltar and the Channel Islands.

How to Save Money on International Payments

As an online seller, you need a partner to optimise payments to your suppliers, collect payments from your clients, process refunds or simply transfer your profit from PayPal or other merchant accounts to your local bank account. All of these can be done using traditional banks, however, it’s hard to find a bank that will not take over 5% of your money on transfer fees.

Luckily, Wise provides a simple solution. Here are the ways you can save money using Wise:

  1. Receive foreign currencies for free using the multi-currency account.
  2. Avoid exchange rate mark-up most banks or providers charge so you’ll end up getting more from the money you send and receive internationally.
  3. Fair and reasonable service fees as well as mid-market rates – a main market differentiator – cheaper payments to vendors and suppliers abroad.

Wise never hides extra fees and charges in its exchange rate. On the other hand, some banks charge exchange rate mark-up, which is why they are not the best option for sending and receiving international transfers. The company uses the exchange rate that is independently provided by Reuters. And this means fair, transparent and low-cost transfers for your business, every time.

Here are some additional benefits of using Wise:

  • Enjoy instant or next-day delivery for a majority of currencies
  • Integration with Xero and Quickbooks to ease your accounting process
  • Multi-currency debit card for faster and convenient payments
  • Transaction costs are always transparent.
  • Simple-to-use app


If you have to ship a package or parcel from the United Kingdom to your customers in Ireland, Royal Mail is one of your best options. You just have to prepare your package or parcel for shipping. After collection, you may also track the progress of your shipment online.

Postage to Ireland | Send Parcels to Ireland | Parcel Delivery to Ireland

Ireland Parcel Delivery | Parcelforce Worldwide

General Advice

  • In order to ensure a delivery on time, please ensure that your parcel has the full, correct address, an email address in the correct format and a mobile or landline number for the intended recipient. This will help the delivery partner to ensure the parcel is delivered correct first time. This should be clearly marked on the parcel.
  • Ireland is migrating to a new postcode system called ‘Eircode‘. The new system is based on a ruleset derived from a routing key (i.e. Area) and a unique identifier (i.e. a house / business). This differs greatly from the old postcode system used which makes getting the correct postcode on the parcel critical to it being delivered on time. 
  • Timescales shown above do not include delays caused by destination country customs processes. Please be aware that customs could add additional time to your parcel delivery.

Product Specific Advice

  • The definition of ‘working days’ and other important information can be found here

What’s more? You will review the offers proposed for delivery from Czech Republic to Ireland and select the most acceptable option, then you will make the payment using the payment method acceptable to you and wait for the courier. From door to door – shipment delivery with Parcel ABC is that simple.
How does it work? The online shipping platform Parcel ABC brings together thousands of international and local carriers on whose vehicles Parcel ABC rummages around for available space and puts it to good use. This enables you to send shipments both large and small (even extremely urgent, if needed). Parcel ABC is always seeking to unearth space available on one or another carrier’s vehicles. The unique system of the Parcel ABC platform allows us to offer you especially good prices for shipping services from Czech Republic to Ireland and also enables us to ensure the quality of such services in case you need an urgent delivery from Czech Republic to Ireland.
Security is a particularly crucial aspect of delivery, whether you are shipping a heart-warming gift or a truly expensive item. All shipments sent via the Parcel ABC platform from Czech Republic to Ireland are covered not only by standard insurance (€25) but also by Parcel ABC insurance.
Once you have used Parcel ABC, you will realise outright that it is a convenient and carefree way to have your shipment sent. The duration? It can take as little as a single day – it depends where you are sending your shipment. Next time you’re in need of a delivery service, you probably won’t have to think twice to decide who to entrust your shipment to. Some couriers render fast shipping services from Czech Republic to Ireland, some couriers are known for their distinctive flexibility of delivery modes, while other shipping agencies’ services are simply cheap, not to forget the humble postal service. But what are those of us supposed to do who just want their shipments from Czech Republic to Ireland to reach the addressee swiftly, securely and, understandably, at an acceptable price? By bringing into play its own unparalleled shipping system, Parcel ABC has resolved this conundrum and transformed it into reality. The Parcel ABC platform brings together a multitude of local and international carriers and always selects the best shipment transportation routes. This means you won’t have to waste your precious time searching for information and comparing prices in quest of the cheapest service.
In just a few clicks on the Parcel ABC platform’s website you will get access to shipping information about the final shipment transportation price and the selected shipping agency, you will learn when the couriers will collect and deliver the shipments from Czech Republic to Ireland, and you will also be able to select the most convenient payment method to pay for the services. You will shortly thereafter be emailed with a message with all the shipping information you need. Parcel ABC asks just one question – what are you going to send today?

To view the ParcelABC pricelist, all you have to do is to enter your destination, the place from which the parcel will be sent and its weight and size. Then the prices valid for the given route offered by our company will be shown. For comparison, we also display the amount you need to pay with other carriers, which allows customers to make an informed choice. The cost of delivery depends on the size and weight of the package, as well as on the distance between the cities. What is important, we also carry out express parcels on interstate routes. We treat it as a priority and therefore deliver it as soon as possible. The cost of such a service will also appear in the list. However, it should be mentioned that express delivery means is more expensive. All prices include fuel charges and insurance of 25 €. If you are looking for the cheapest offer, order ParcelABC courier and send your parcel with us.

Our cheap courier usually needs an average of 19 days to deliver goods between these countries. The delivery period depends mainly on the distance. However, we would like to remind you that you can always choose express delivery. Then the time needed for delivery shortens even to a few hours. Fast shipment in the vast majority of cases is delivered to the recipient’s hands in 1-2 business days. Anyone who sends a package through our platform can also track its location on a regular basis. This makes it easier to both determine the exact date of delivery of the package to the recipient, as well as find it if lost.

Each courier company has regulations, and in it a list of goods that it does not transport. Such a list is created for several reasons, including due to international regulations, fairly frequent use of air transport and simply practicality. ParcelABC, like most other carriers, does not transport hazardous materials and substances, including ammunition, weapons, acids, mercury, bacteria or viruses. Such goods may damage other parcels. In addition, our courier will not accept parcels that contain prescription drugs, alcohol, tobacco, cigarettes, perishable goods or original works of art. The creation of such a list was also dictated by the fact that we cooperate with various carriers, such as UPS, IMX, InPost FedEx, DHL, DPD, TNT, ASM or TRANSIMEKSA, who have their own regulations that we try to adapt to. If in doubt, read the tab at the bottom of the page or send us a question via the form or contact us by phone. Finally, we would like to remind you that each country has its own law and customs regulations. It is worth getting familiar with them before shipping. The package can be checked at the border. If a prohibited item is inside, the shipment will most likely be returned to the sender and, in extreme cases, it may be confiscated by customs. Once you manage to determine what you can send in the package, order the shipment.

The distance that separates these countries is exactly 1638 kilometers. Our cheap courier is always trying to deliver parcels as quickly and cheaply as possible. Up to now 143 people from Czech Republic have decided to use our service. The most frequently used payment methods were Paysera – 56%, PayPal – 41%, Credit card, E-wallet – 3%. It is worth noting that, although all parcels sent via ParcelABC have free insurance of 25 euros, you can increase this amount up to 5000 euros. This service is frequently used by those who send valuable items, so the customer does not have to worry about any damage during transportation, because, should there be issues, he will receive a refund. The purchase of such insurance has so far been decided by 23% of clients from Czech Republic. The average price paid by customers was 13 EUR, 15.525 USD, 11.2965 GBP, 59.3333 PLN, 435.1196 UAH, 1178.4241 RUB, 20.3256 AUD, 96.682 DKK, 40.9432 BYN, 4671.9158 HUF.

In order for the shipment to reach the recipient unscathed, it should be packed in the best possible way, which will minimize the impact of any shocks that may occur during transport. The most important element is the right box, which should be stiff. Secure the product with bubble wrap, which will always provide adequate cushioning. If after leaving the item inside the package there is still free space, fill it with soft material so that nothing inside can move loosely. When sealing the parcel, remember to attach the bill of lading in a visible place. We send such a label to an e-mail address and we provide it in the client’s printable panel.

Format Information
“Ireland Mailing Address Formats (snail mail)”
An easy-to-understand guide, but outdated or potentially misleading on two points:
An Post
Ireland’s national postal service.

Selected address formatting guidelines from the An Post website as of 2017, with additions for mailing from outside Ireland to Irish addresses:

  • For a few cities (Dublin and Cork) there may be a one or two digit zone number. This is completely different from the postcode/’Eircode’. For the least confusion, write it on the address’s city line, after the city name. (Some people might write the zone number after the street name, but that could be more confusing.)

    An example is shown below, with the zone number written after the city of Dublin.

    An Post Business Desk
    O'Connell Street Lower
    Dublin 1
    D01 F5P2

You should write your address in Ireland using the following guidelines:

  1. Each line should start at the same distance from the left hand edge of the cover, i.e. the address should not be written in the indented format.
  2. Each line should be limited to 32 characters.
  3. Individual characters should have a minimum height of 2mm (5/64 inch), a maximum height of 7mm (8/32 inch) and a maximum width of 7mm (8/32 inch). (So character height and width of 1/4 inch to 1/8 inch are certainly within the specified size range. )
  4. The address must be written in a compact form without a blank line between the Post Town or County Name (if required) and the other elements of the address. It is important that no part of the address is underlined.

Note: The Official Postal Address does not contain any abbreviations and An Post recommends that you use the full spelling when addressing a mail piece, for example Road not Rd.

A few addresses are special cases:

  • The post town and county in a mailing address can be different from the real physical location. To ease logistics, a particular area’s mail might be delivered through a nearby town in a different county. In this case, the official mailing address might incorporate the “post town” and the post town’s county, instead of the physically accurate geography.
  • Locality is an extra line required in a few addresses above the city/town, and optional in others.

    An Post says “The name of the locality or second thoroughfare should…always be included in the address where it is necessary to distinguish between two or more streets in the same postal district, for example”

    Pembroke Cottages
    Dublin 4
    Pembroke Cottages
    Dublin 4
Find Postcodes / Postal Codes
Ireland’s government has created and adopted a postcode system (somewhat like the USA’s zip codes) in which the postcode is called an “Eircode.”
Postcode/Eircode Search
  • When you address mail to a destination in Ireland, the postcode/’Eircode’ is not mandatory.
  • An Irish postcode/’Eircode’ is three letters and/or numbers, followed by a space, followed by four more letters and/or numbers.
  • Most addresses in permanent buildings now have postcodes. Relatively new buildings or addresses might not yet have postcodes assigned (that could take a few months.)
  • The first three characters of an Eircode indicate the post town or area; the last four characters indicate a particular address within that area.
  • When sending mail into Ireland and using the postcode/’Eircode’, the postcode would go on a line of its own just above the country name IRELAND. Otherwise, the postcode would be the bottom line of the address.
  • A relatively critical explanation of the Irish Eircode / postcode system is available from Padraig O’Mara (July 2015).

90,000 Ireland: about the country Ireland, the “Emerald Isle”, is one of the most attractive and mysterious European countries. A land of fairies and elves, fiery revolutionaries and paradoxical writers, romantic legends and pragmatic whiskey producers . ..
Ireland is one of the oldest countries in Europe, which has perfectly preserved its culture and historical heritage – despite a difficult fate – after all, the territory of Ireland is still divided between the Republic of Ireland and Great Britain…

Ireland – Republic of Ireland, Poblacht na hÉireann in Irish, Republic of Ireland in English – occupies most of the island of the same name. The name comes from the Irish word Éire, meaning “state”.

In addition to the Republic of Ireland, there are also Northern Ireland , Tuaisceart Éireann or Northern Ireland. It is an administrative and political unit of the United Kingdom with its capital in Belfast. It includes 6 of the 9 counties in the historic province of Ulster.

Administratively, the Republic of Ireland is divided into 4 historical provinces – Ulster, Leinster, Munster and Connacht; and those, in turn, for 26 counties. 20 counties belong to the independent Republic, 6 to Northern Ireland.

The independence of the Republic of Ireland was proclaimed in 1949, in 1973 the country joined the European Union.
Ireland is a parliamentary republic, its Parliament consists of two chambers – representatives and the Senate. The executive power belongs to the president elected for 7 years, and in fact – to the prime minister approved by the president.

The island of Ireland , by the way, is the third largest among European islands, located in the North Atlantic Ocean; from the east it is also washed by the Irish Sea.
Accordingly, the climate of Ireland – temperate sea, with mild winters and cool summers, with a significant amount of rainfall – which made Ireland “the emerald island”.
The warmest month of the year is July, the average air temperature is + 18-20 C. The coldest month is January, with an average monthly temperature of up to minus 9 degrees Celsius.

The capital of the country is the city of Dublin , with a population of just over one and a half million people.
Dublin is a county city located on the Dublin Bay of the Irish Sea. The center of Ireland’s political, cultural and economic life, Dublin is also the country’s main port city.
The most popular version of the etymology of the name of the city is “Black Creek”, and the modern Irish name of the capital – Baile Átha Cliath, or abbreviated BC, means “settlement by the ford” (the River Liffey, which flows into Dublin Bay).We will also talk about Dublin below, when describing the sights of the country.

The second largest city in the country – Cork , it is home to about 200,000 people (including the suburbs).
Yet the population of Ireland is, according to 2006, a little more than 4.2 million people. Of these, the majority – over 88% – are “indigenous Irish” of Celtic descent. National minorities are represented by another 40 nationalities, among which, for obvious reasons, the British are in the lead – 2.74% of the population.The Poles are next – 1.5%, the honorable third place, less than 1%, went to the Lithuanians.

Time in Ireland is 3 hours behind Moscow time.
National currency – Euro
Official languages ​​of Ireland – Irish and English.

Religion in Ireland has traditionally played an important role in public life. The main denomination is Catholicism; it is followed by Protestantism. Northern Ireland, which remained in British possession, is dominated by the Protestant population.

Cities and places of interest in Ireland
The center and heart of the country is its capital, elegant Dublin.
It is believed that the city was founded in 841 by the Scandinavians, at the confluence of the Liffey River into Dublin Bay. But the first mentions of a Celtic settlement at this place date back to the middle of the 2nd century AD and belong to the Greek astronomer and geographer Ptolemy.

One of the first incursions of the British into Ireland dates back to 1169, when Dublin, after the capture of Henry II Plantagenet, for a long time became a royal city and a stronghold of British influence in the country.Since then, the city has preserved several architectural landmarks – first of all, of course, Dublin Castle, which housed the British government. Not far from it are the Cathedral of St. Patrick Cathedral, Christ Cathedral and St. Audina.

Among other architectural and historical sights of Dublin, Blackrock House, the summer residence of the Irish Viceroys, should be abolished; an obelisk in honor of the Duke of Wellington; the area “Fifteen acres” – the place of noble duels; a maze of old streets around Temple Bar, a focal point of Georgian architecture in Marriott Square, Eli Plate… And, of course, the main street of the city – O ”Connol Street – has been destroyed and rebuilt many times, a motley mixture of architectural styles and eras.

Dublin has a rich cultural tradition. It is not for nothing that so many famous English-speaking writers were born in it: Oscar Wilde, Bernadre Shaw, William Yates, Samuel Beckett, Jonathan Swift and even the creator of “Dracula” Bram Stoker! Dubliners are proud of their famous countrymen and honor them – for example, on June 16, the townspeople annually celebrate Bloomsday, a holiday dedicated to the protagonist of James Joyce’s novel Ulysses.
The city is home to the National Library of Ireland and the National Printing Museum, the Civic Museum and museums of national and modern art, many theaters, exhibition and concert halls, the Trinity College complex and the Royal Irish Yacht Club …

Other attractions of Ireland are, before in total, medieval castles, the amazing nature of the country and the world-famous place of Newgrange – a megalithic cult building, more ancient than Stonehenge and the pyramids of Giza.

Many ancient castles are now home to national parks, cultural or tourism organizations, including 4-5 star hotels. For example – the estate of Count Macross, now – Macross National Park. Or Cabra Castle in County Cavan – now not just a hotel, but a haunted inn! And in the castle of Count Tomonda (Bunratty, County Clare), medieval banquets for tourists are often held – but keep in mind that not only the treats, but also the serving will be medieval, that is, you have to do it with your hands…

Limerick is known not only for comic five-verses, but also for its 800-year-old royal castle, and the city’s cathedral – the same age as the castle … The inhabitants of the seaside town of Dingle speak only their native Gaelic, willingly study Celtic culture, Oceanfront restaurants serving delicious local fish specialties …

Irish cuisine
Here we smoothly move on to the culinary topic.Irish cuisine is the cuisine of a country that has remained poor for most of its history. Therefore, it is simple and creative in using the main food product – potatoes.
Potato pancakes (boxty), mashed potatoes with green onions, butter and milk (champ), mashed potatoes with cabbage, potato bread – this is not a complete list of various potato dishes known to the Irish.
Milk and dairy products are widely used by the Irish, although until the 80s of the last century there was only one type of cheese in Ireland – cheddar.One of the traditional dairy dishes is Goody – bread boiled in milk with sugar and spices.
Popular meat dishes: Irish stew – lamb stew with onions and yes, potatoes; Crubeens – boiled, pre-salted, pork leg stewed bacon with cabbage …
