Postcode Address Lookup Tool

Irish Address Look-up

An Eircode is a seven-character alpha-numeric postcode. Each Eircode is unique to a postal address and its geographic location. 

Over 35% of addresses in Ireland share their address with at least one other property, making it difficult to find the location of a specific address. Unlike other countries where postcodes define a cluster or group of addresses, in Ireland a unique Eircode is assigned to each residential and business postal address.




Why is the Eicode lookup tool not bringing back any results?

An Eircode is made up of two parts, a Routing Key, and a Unique Identifier.

The Routing Key consists of three characters. This is a combination of numbers and letters and identifies the principal post town related to a building or property’s postal address. The Routing Key characters are the same for all Eircodes assigned to addresses within that postal area.

The second part is the Unique Identifier and consists of four characters. The unique identifier is made up of numbers and letters. The Unique Identifier is unique to an address and its geographic location – it distinguishes one address from another within a postal area.

A typical Eircode might read A65 F4E2.

UK Address Look-up

Search for  UK business addresses

You can also search for business addresses in the same way. If the company name is very common (for example, \’Tesco\’), you may need to provide more details such as the town or street name.

Search for a building name in the UK

Some homes or business addresses use a name instead of a street number. This name is an \’alias\’ but every property still has a street address, even if it isn\’t commonly used. You can use either to search for an address.

For example, \’Media House, London\’ or \’32 Coin Street, London\’ will give you the same result.

Search for Welsh addresses

Postcode Finder will search for Welsh addresses if you\’re searching in English or Welsh. If you prefer, you can change the language to Welsh by clicking \’Fersiwn Cymraeg\’.
