Part 1: Calling Ireland from the United Kingdom

To call Ireland from the United Kingdom, follow the dialing procedure below. The procedure is applicable to both Irish fixed line numbers and mobile numbers.


00-353-Area Code-Irish Phone Number OR (+353-Area Code-Irish Phone Number)

00-353-9 Digit Phone Number OR (+353-9 Digit Phone Number)

The above dialing format represents some components specific to the UK to Ireland calls.

Using the + sign at the beginning automatically inserts the international call prefix (00). These two zeros represent the United Kingdom’s Exit Code. Using them signifies that a caller in the UK is making an international call.

The second component (353) represents Ireland’s country code / ISD code. Some Irish cities have area codes, while others do not. It is, therefore, vital that the caller knows the city in which the call recipient resides.

If the recipient’s city of residence has an area code, dial it after the ISD Code. If not, just dial their phone number after Ireland’s country code.
