Located just a few miles from mainland Britain, Northern Ireland is a nation of only 1.8 million people but has become an attractive holiday destination due to its landmarks and natural beauty. With Giant’s Causeway and the Titanic museum, amongst others, extremely popular draws for tourists, there is no shortage of reasons to visit.
Of course, Northern Ireland is part of the UK so it goes without saying that there are extremely strong links between the nation and the British mainland. With a large population of Northern Irish people residing in England, Wales and Scotland (and vice-versa), there is high demand for sending parcels to Northern Ireland.

As Northern Ireland is part of the UK, there are no customs obligations when shipping there. The current uncertainty over Brexit does not extend to sending parcels to Northern Ireland because of this so, unlike other countries you may ship to, there will be no changes to the way you send goods.
You should address a parcel to Northern Ireland as you would address one to anywhere else in the UK - there is no difference in format. The first line(s) should comprise of the name of the person and/or company receiving the parcel. Next should be the street name and number, the line after that should be the address’ postcode and finally the name of the country - United Kingdom. You can also add “Northern Ireland” if you prefer. Remember to write clearly so the address label is not misunderstood; block capitals help with this.
Again, as Northern Ireland is part of the UK, there are no import restrictions as you will be sending a parcel domestically rather than across international borders.
There are no items which cannot specifically be sent to Northern Ireland other than those already prohibited in the UK in general. Royal Mail will be able to provide you with an exhaustive list of these items.
ParcelBroker also requires that you check our prohibited items list before booking parcel delivery to Northern Ireland, since there are specific products that we cannot carry.
