Ireland is arguably the country with the closest cultural, historical and geographic links to the UK. There are a considerable number of people who have emigrated from Ireland to the UK and vice-versa. For instance, it is thought that over 6 million people in the UK have at least one Irish grandparent; while many Irish products are commonplace in Britain.
Unsurprisingly, this means a lot of mail is sent from the UK to Ireland. If you run an eCommerce business exporting to Ireland, ParcelBroker will ensure your parcels arrive quickly and safely. To streamline this process even more, why not use Parcelbroker's WooCommerce plugin?

As mentioned earlier, the demand for shipping from the UK to Ireland is huge because of the close connection between the two countries. As such, most parcels will take 1-2 days to arrive, and should take no longer than 3 days. As ever, this can differ between carriers so check before you send.
Both the UK and Ireland are currently in the EU, meaning there are no customs obligations when shipping from the UK to Ireland. However, as the UK is leaving the EU this could change soon. ParcelBroker is working hard to keep abreast of developments and we will inform you of any changes.
The address system for sending parcels to Ireland is pretty much the same as it is in the UK. However, for some larger cities in Ireland such as Dublin or Cork there are two postal zones; marking which one you are delivering to will help make the process clearer.
If you are writing the address label by hand, make sure your handwriting is clear - block capitals help with this.
As a fellow EU member state, Ireland has few import restrictions. Despite this, items which can be sent within the UK such as batteries, perfume and aerosols cannot be shipped internationally. Be sure to check with the relevant authorities for any other restrictions.
Items which you cannot send to Ireland will be roughly the same as those prohibited from shipping anywhere in the EU. If you are unsure about a particular item, check with Irish Tax and Customs.
You must also check our prohibited items list before booking parcel delivery to Ireland as there are a number of items we will not carry.
