From postcards to parcels, Standard Post is ideal for sending non-urgent items safely and at an affordable price. We deliver all over Ireland and to more than 200 countries worldwide.
The cost of Standard Post depends on the size and weight of the item you are posting and its destination. Check our postal rates for details.
Find out if Standard Post is available to your chosen country by using our Calculate the Postage tool which also gives you expected delivery times.
Our prepaid packaging options include ROI postage, saving you from calculating shipping costs or buying stamps and labels.
ComReg, the Commission for Communications Regulation, regulates the quality of our mail service and sets performance standards. It monitors compliance with the standards and publishes a report on the results of the monitoring exercise at least once a year. The most recent performance statistics are for 2019.
Delivery times vary depending on the destination. Standard Post items are delivered on the next working day in Ireland. International items take three to seven working days.
If you need your mail to get there faster, try our Same Day Delivery or International Courier services.
Tracking is available only on parcels within the Republic of Ireland.
Always include a return address. On the rare occasion we cannot deliver your item we will return it to you without delay.
Due to a tightening of airline security it is no longer possible to accept ink or toner cartridges. Check the full list of items restricted from the outbound international mail services.
When sending packets or parcels to destinations outside the European Union, a completed customs declaration is required and is available from your post office. An Post provides two customs forms:
The CP72 for parcels or items with a value in excess of €300
An Aviation Security Declaration, to ensure compliance with airline security regulations, must be attached to any packet or parcel containing goods sent within the EU, excluding Northern Ireland.
