Eircode working explained and registration process

Eircode is a postcode system used in Ireland to help identify specific locations for the purposes of mail delivery and other services. Eircode consists of a seven-character code that is assigned to each individual address in Ireland.

The first three characters of the Eircode, known as the “Routing Key”, identify the general area where the address is located, while the remaining four characters, known as the “Unique Identifier”, identify the specific address within that area. This allows for more precise identification of addresses, which can help improve the efficiency of mail delivery and other services.

How long it takes to get an Eircode?

Eircodes are assigned to individual addresses by An Post, the Irish postal service, and the time it takes to receive an Eircode will depend on a number of factors.

In general, it can take several weeks to receive an Eircode for a new address or for an address that has recently been updated.

You can contact An Post directly to inquire about the status of your Eircode and to request an Eircode if you do not already have one.

To register an Eircode with An Post,  you will need to have an Eircode assigned to your address.

If you do not already have an Eircode for your address, you can contact An Post to request one.

Once you have your Eircode, you can register it with An Post by providing the Eircode to An Post either online, by phone, or in person at a post office.

This will allow An Post to accurately identify your address and ensure that mail and other items are delivered to the correct location.
