High quality, low-cost delivery to Ireland
The home of some incredible vistas and crucial culture, the Republic of Ireland is a very close neighbour to England. In fact, depending on where someone lives in England, they may actually be closer to Ireland than they are to some other English cities. Considering this, and the links we have with major courier companies, we can provide deliveries that are quick, trustworthy and up to 80% cheaper than if you were to go directly to companies like InPost and Landmark.
International courier services you can trust
Whether you're sending parcels to the UK or you want to arrange some low-cost international postage, we offer a customer-focused approach to our services. We value flexibility, which is why we provide options to send your packages to convenient pick-up points so the recipient won't need to be in their home when it's delivered. Alternatively, it can be sent directly to their door so they don't need to visit the pick-up point themselves.
Our dedication to providing a transparent, trustworthy service has seen major delivery companies partner with us. As a result of this, we can deliver exclusive discounts on our services with the following partnered companies:
In most cases, free cover is even provided for the deliveries, which helps with that peace of mind everyone should have when sending items internationally.
The impact of Brexit on delivery to the Republic of Ireland
As of January 1st 2021, the UK has officially left the EU - but what does this mean for Ireland parcel delivery? Thankfully, although the UK may no longer be a part of the EU, you won't need to change your delivery method when posting to the Republic of Ireland. While there may be additional admin required, we will handle this to the best of our ability.
Certain items are either completely restricted in Ireland or require you to hold a particular permit or a license. Below you will find a few of these, but note that not all are included:
- - Most paints (due to toxicity)
- - Deodorants, fuels and other flammable products
- - Acids, batteries and other corrosive substances
- - Ink and toner cartridges, either in printers or separately packed
- - Hay or straw (even if used for packing)
There are also limitations on the number of certain items brought in, such as beer and cigarettes. To be safe, research the official Republic of Ireland documentation on the matter.
What is the cheapest way to send a parcel to Ireland?
The cheapest way to send a parcel to the Republic of Ireland is by using International Economy or a similar delivery service. This will mean your parcel delivery will take a little longer to arrive, so if you are in a hurry you may not want to opt for this option.
Before you send a parcel, consider how quickly you need it to arrive. If you aren't in a rush, then you could save a lot of money. The fastest delivery services, however, are usually a little more expensive.
How long does it take to deliver to Ireland?
Transit times depend entirely on the size of your parcel and how much you are willing to spend, as quicker deliveries can be provided for a more premium fee. With a typical delivery option when sending a small package, it should take approximately 3-4 days from the United Kingdom.
Do I need to change how I address my parcel for delivery to Ireland?
You will not need to change how you address your parcels to Ireland, as long as the address is correct. Please note that some Irish addresses require a 1 or 2 digit code that you will need to add after the specific city name!
