Do I need a Airmail sticker for an A4 letter I want to send to Dublin from the UK? I know North Ireland is still normal UK postage but is South different?

Take it to the post office. It will cost more than Northern Ireland but is cheaper than most foreign destinations. An A4 letter should cost a couple of quid first class.

Southern Ireland is classed as Europe by Royal Mail.... If you have an idea of the weight of the envelope then >this< should give you an indication of price.

Letters to Northern Ireland shouldnt cost any more than sending a letter within England or to Scotland/Wales as its within the United Kingdom.

A letter from the UK to the Irish Republic is sent at the European letter rates of Royal Mail so airmail will be the fastest way for your letter to get there. You can get an idea of the prices here:

And click on 'overseas' - should help a little

I always use Airmail when posting letters and cards to family in the Republic. Only takes a few days.

Me too, I found that a lot of my post never made it before I started using airmail stickers.

I send cards and parcels to my friend in Ireland and I always take them to the post office and yes they do put an air mail sticker on the envelope.

Always best to take the letter to the post office, get it sized & weighed and attached the appropriate stickers and stamps.

OP- Do as Cosmo says above, I do the same and never have a problem with my mail getting over there. It will cost a bit more to post than a UK addy for obvious reasons.

You can always just write airmail on it too although I think as long as it's the correct postage it should be fine
