Using an Eircode
When you receive an Eircode notification letter it means a new Eircode has been assigned to your address. It also means the Eircode Finder has been updated with the new address and Eircode. You should take note of the Eircode contained in the letter so that you can refer to it easily when you need to.
Notification letters are only sent when an Eircode is first assigned, it is possible that a previous occupier received the notification letter for your current address. An Eircode notification letter is not required to use an Eircode. All Eircodes can be found on the Eircode Finder - a public website that allows you to search for Eircodes by address or map. You can also print your Eircode from the Eircode Finder.
You can start using an Eircode as soon as it is assigned.
An Eircode should be added to your address as follows.
As Eircode is very new, many retailers and organisations are busy updating their systems to recognise and accept an Eircode. Overtime, you will see more organisations requesting an Eircode and accepting it.
