Eircode, the postcode system for Ireland, launched in July 2015. Each postal address has been assigned a unique postcode, called an Eircode. The Eircode system means every single house in the country have its own seven-digit code.

Postal Code Within Ireland
All addresses in Northern Ireland have postal codes. These are alphanumeric, and begin with "BT" The use of "BT" does NOT necessarily indicate the address is in Belfast; all NI postal codes, no matter what city or county, begin "BT".
In the Republic of Ireland, only Dublin City has postal codes, and they are really postal districts. You will notice that all of Dublin City centre establishments are in "Dublin 1" or "Dublin 2", etc. Outside the city, it is simply County Dublin. The postal code system for Dublin is relatively simple. Odd numbers are addresses on the North side of the River Liffey. Even numbers are on the south side (except for parts of Dublin 8, which encompasses part of the Phoenix Park). Dublin 1 is the North City Centre. Dublin 2 is the South City Centre.
