Eire - Land of Legends, Craic and Guinness

Just across the Irish sea our close neighbour and a great trading partnership we are very fond of the Irish especially as so many of us have a shared ancestry.

The magical Isle of Ireland. Legends and Folklore.

Wild coasts, gentle people, a less rushed pace of life.

The land of great literary classics and the black nectar that is Guiness.

Dont forget the vibrant cities of Dublin and Cork where the 'craic' or chat as we would call it is terrific in many of the warm and welcoming drinking establishments.  Music, Guinness and a warm welcome what more could you ask for?

Horses and Racing

A lot of our customers use our cheap, fast and reliable service to send saddles, and horse equipment to the world class stables that Ireland is justifiably famous for. 

Customs restictions

As part of the EU there are no customs restrictions to Ireland.

Postal Tips

Ireland is one of the few countries in the world that doesn't use postcodes. This can present a problem for post and parcels to remote parts, quite often the address is very vague, but our carriers are very adept at finding the properties they are delivering your parcel to but a local phone number does help the driver if he gets stuck.

Quick Tip

If sending to Ireland in order for our website to complete the order you need to put something in the postcode box. Either EIRE 0000 or 00000 will allow you to proceed to the next page and save frustration!

Luckily they use a similar address system to the UK but without the postcode.

DPD run a great service to Ireland and don't forget if you include your receiver's mobile no or email they will get a text or email telling them when to expect their delivery.

This addressing guide is very helpful for letters and packets to post to Ireland.
