What is ‘Eircode’ in Ireland?
Eircode is Ireland’s postcode system and is the code to input in the optional ‘Postcode/ZIP’ section of the Totally Irish Gifts’ checkout.
In Ireland a unique Eircode is assigned to each residential and business postal address, unlike other countries where postcodes define a cluster or group of addresses.
An Eircode is a seven-character alpha-numeric postcode. A typical Eircode might read A65 F4E2.
Providing an Eircode for a shipping address for letters or parcels in Ireland is not mandatory. However, it is advisable to provide the Eircode in order to assist postal and courier staff to correctly deliver your gift.
If you are unsure of the Eircode to use, you can check for an address at this official link
