Amazon is one of the biggest and best-known online shopping websites in the world. There isn’t currently a separate Amazon.ie website for Ireland , but it might be on the way in the near future.
Brexit possibly made a few Irish shoppers a bit warier of shopping on some UK websites – but until we have an Amazon.ie website , Irish residents can still buy most things without any problems at Amazon UK.
In August 2022 – Amazon Ireland opened a new 630,000-square-foot fulfilment centre in Baldonnell Business Park in Dublin. This centre will store millions of items that will be picked, packed and shipped to customers around Ireland and the rest of Europe. This should mean faster deliveries for Amazon customers in Ireland and hopefully more products available. This may also mean that an Amazon.ie website could be on the way in the near future.

All orders for more than £20 on Amazon qualify for free delivery to Ireland (as long as the goods are sold by Amazon). To get this free delivery to Ireland you just have to select it at checkout – Ie. it is not automatic.
The free delivery takes maybe 1 or sometimes 2 days longer than the standard delivery – but in my experience, it always arrives within 5 days if all the items are in stock.
Free delivery from Amazon UK is also available to all the following European countries on orders over £20:
Belgium, Denmark, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Finland, Gibraltar, Iceland, Portugal, Sweden, and Poland.
So if you have any friends or relatives in these countries you can send them gifts with no postage charges.
Important Note : Amazon allows other sellers to sell items on the Amazon website – but many of these “marketplace” sellers don’t deliver to Ireland.
To be sure of getting products delivered to Ireland with free delivery check that the seller is Amazon.co.uk . You can select the seller as one of the search options on the left-hand side of the screen.

Shoppers in Ireland also have the option of using Amazon Germany if they have any problems with ordering on the UK site. Just be aware that all electrical items will be sold with a “European” plug ( 2 pins) – so you will need adapters. Also, there is no option of free delivery to Ireland.
