Run your own post office

Are you interested in operating your own post office? Do you have proven retail and business development skills? Can you provide or access suitable premises? If you answered ‘yes’ to these questions, running a post office might be the right move for you.

We have the largest retail network in Ireland with more than a thousand outlets serving communities nationwide. We own and staff the 45 largest post offices but 997 outlets are run for us by our retail partners.
