Eircode makes every Irish address unique
Before the launch of Eircode in July 2015, over 35% of addresses in Ireland shared their address with at least one other property. This made it difficult for those delivering goods and services to accurately identify the location of an address.
Eircode was designed specifically to overcome this problem. Unlike other countries where postcodes define a cluster or group of addresses, a unique Eircode is assigned to each residential and business address.
