"Wicklow" in Ireland.

Is that part of the UK? Will it cost me more. How much extra would I need to charge (roughly?)

Any time i send to Eire it costs me a lot more than northern ireland,i always sent requiring a signature.

wicklow is below dublin.

what is the item?

It has been a long time since i sent something to Eire,but i'd expect to pay double the uk postage price or more to send there.

If it was 2 to send to the uk i'd expect to pay 5 to Eire.

Check the price here:


Ireland would be regarded as overseas, but it's no more difficult to post to Wicklow than to Wakefield.

Go to the Royal Mail website...

If you use THIS link it will take you to the price finder...

Put the weight of the package in...

If it's NI then it'll be usual UK postage and if it's in Eire then you choose the overseas option and then Ireland (Republic) and follow the steps to get the postage costs...

Eire is classed as Europe for postage purposes... Which is something that annoys me no end as I have a good number of customers in Eire who pay substantially more just for being the 'wrong' side of the border so far as UK postage is concerned...

Ireland is really expensive to post to.

If it is under 2kg then royal mail air mail - small parcels will be the cheapest way and not that much more than to the UK. If over 2kg then you will be looking at a courier or similar and will cost a fortune. If over 2kg and you can split into small parcel (unnder 2kg each) then that would be a cheaper way of doing it.
