Amazon Prime members get FREE priority (2 day) delivery to Ireland on all orders of Prime eligible items.
If items are not eligible for Priority Delivery, they’ll be delivered to Ireland via Standard (3-4 days) or Economy (3-5 days) delivery at no extra cost to Prime members. Normally 2 day delivery to Ireland would cost £7.49 on Amazon. Not all items sold on Amazon are eligible for Prime – but there are thousands that are.

What is included in Ammazon Prime in Ireland ?
- As mentioned above – you get FREE priority delivery on millions of Prime eligible items.
- Amazon Prime Video . This is not as extensive for Irish members as the UK version – but when we checked there were about 3500 films available and almost 400 TV series. (It is possible to change your Prime region to the UK. See the end of the article for details.)
- Free Kindle Books. Amazon Prime members in Ireland can also borrow from thousands of ebook titles from the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library.
- Photo Storage: You also get free secure, unlimited photo storage.
- Of course, Irish residents with Amazon Prime also get free next day delivery to all UK addresses.
- Amazon Prime members also get access to special offers on certain days of the year that are not available to anyone else.

How Much Does Amazon Prime Cost in Ireland ?
The normal price of Amazon Prime is £7.99 GBP per month or £79.99 GBP per year if you pay up front. It’s the same price in Ireland as in the UK.
The best way to find out if it is any good for you – is to sign up for a free 30 day trial . If you don’t think it’s worth £7.99 a month you can just turn off the auto-renewal before the 30-day trial runs out.
Amazon’s option of Free Super Saver delivery to Ireland on orders over £25 is still available in 200 for non-Prime members – but this can take 4 to 6 days and sometimes more.
Sadly – the inclusive free “Amazon Prime Music” is not available in Ireland for Amazon Prime members – but their Amazon Music Unlimited option is available in Ireland. It offers 50 million songs including loads of new releases from popular artists and some exclusive releases.
It costs £9.99/month . I use it – and it is as good as Spotify or maybe better and it works great with Amazon Echo devices and smartphones . You can stream Amazon Music Unlimited songs on your phone, Kindle Fire, Tablet, Amazon Echo, Laptop or PC. You can also download songs to play offline.
Prime members in Ireland do not get a price reduction on Music Unlimited .

Amazon Premier League matches in Ireland.*
Amazon Prime members located in the UK can now watch some Premier League soccer matches live.
These matches are not supposed to be available to watch in Ireland – but we have seen online reports of people being able to watch Amazon Prime Video Premier League matches in Ireland.
It needs a change to the region used by Amazon in your Prime account
. It seems that the best way to get this changed is through online chat when logged into Amazon. The succesful viewers get the region changed because they tell the chat agent that they are in the UK most of the time for work reasons – which could be true for many people working in Northern Ireland .
Some people also say it might help if you have a UK payment card (such as Revolut or Monese). It also might help if your default delivery address is a UK address. Many people seem to use the Parcel Motel address:-
1A McKinney Road
We are not saying that anyone should do this – but just letting you know that this is what others have done to view premier league matches on Amazon
