Information About Ireland
Ireland’s telephone numbers allow for variations in number length. The Irish format is similar to systems used in many parts of Europe, and the United Kingdom. Mobile and non-geographic numbers, however, are fixed length and do not support local dialing.
Ireland uses the trunk prefix 0 to access numbers outside the local area. This is followed by an area code, referred to as an NDC (National Dialing Code.) The first digit of the NDC indicates the geographical area or type of service (e.g. mobile).
Calls made from mobile phones and some VoIP systems, always require the full area code and phone number. As in European countries, the trunk prefix 0 must be omitted when calling Irish numbers from abroad.
ISD Code or Country Code for Ireland is 353
Area codes – There are 17 area codes in Ireland. Area codes are 1 to 3 digits and phone numbers are 7-9 digital for a total of a 10-digit number. Dial the area code of the city in Ireland you are calling after dialing ISD Code (91). If there is no area code dial the recipient’s telephone number after ISD Code.
