Amazon is probably the best-known online store in the Western World. Sadly – there isn’t an Amazon.ie website specifically for Ireland (YET) . In the meantime, online shoppers in Ireland can still use the Amazon UK website and get almost everything delivered to Ireland.
If you are worried about extra VAT or duty charges since Brexit – there is not a lot to worry about. If there are any extra charges, Amazon shows them at checkout. But it is probably best to try and stick to goods “sold by Amazon”

There are some items that Amazon won’t deliver to Ireland.
So – If you do have problems finding what you want on Amazon Uk – you could try Amazon Germany (In English) . The German Amazon site allows you to use the same login as the UK store. Unfortunately, there is not a free delivery option on the German Amazon site. Also – you need to be aware that electrical goods sold on the German site will come with 2 pin EU plugs.

Prime membership does not get you free delivery from Amazon Germany
Amazon UK still offers Free delivery to Ireland for everyone on all orders over £20. This can take between 3 and 5 days.
Important: Only goods sold by Amazon.co.uk or fulfilled by Amazon are included in the offer of free delivery to Ireland on orders over £20. Don’t just assume your delivery will be free – check the final total before paying.
If your Amazon order is under £20 the following charges will apply for delivery to Ireland:
Books/ Music / DVD / Blu-ray / Video Games £4 per delivery
Other categories – £6 per delivery
If you want 2 day delivery to Ireland and you are not a Prime member – it will cost you £7.49 per delivery.
Amazon employs hundreds of staff in Ireland – in Dublin and Cork.
In October 2020 , Amazon opened a delivery depot in Dublin which utilises local delivery companies to deliver Amazon orders . At the moment , this setup is only delivering to Dublin and the surrounding area.
It will mean deliveries on Sundays and quicker 1 day deliveries for some items for Prime customers in the Dublin area.
Amazon are opening a massive warehouse in Dublin in mid 2022 – so we expect even faster deliveries for all Irish Amazon Prime customers.
