Amazon Prime in Ireland – now with Free Priority Delivery

Since July 2018 – Amazon Prime members get FREE priority (2 day) delivery to Ireland on all orders of Prime eligible items.
Normally this 2 day delivery to Ireland would cost £7.49.

The Amazon Prime membership scheme has been around for a few years now. It started off with members just getting free next day UK delivery on eligible items. It was then expanded to include some free Music (about 2 million songs) as well as a selection of free films and TV programs. The free priority delivery to Ireland was added in 2018.
Amazon Prime members also get access to special offers on certain days of the year that are not available to anyone else.

Not all items sold on Amazon are eligible for Prime – but there are thousands that are.
You can get a free 30 Day Trial of Amazon Prime here .

Students can get an even better offer – Third Level students in Ireland and the UK can get a 6 month FREE trial of Amazon Prime.
You can sign up here on the Amazon Prime Student Sign up page .
(The price for students after 6 months is £3.99 a month) . Join now and you will have free 2-day delivery until after Christmas.

The normal cost of Amazon Prime is £7.99 per month or £79.99 per year if you pay upfront. As well as the free 2 day delivery to Ireland you also get access to Prime Video.
Amazon Prime Video for Irish members is not as extensive as the UK version  – but when we checked in mid-2018 there were 3221 films available and 360 TV series.

Amazon Prime members in Ireland can also borrow from thousands of ebook titles from the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library. You can also get free secure, unlimited photo storage.
Of course,  Irish residents with Amazon Prime also get free next day delivery to all UK addresses.

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.

The option of Free Super Saver delivery to Ireland on orders over £25 is still available for non-Prime members  – but this can take 4 to 6 days and sometimes more.

Amazon Music

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 40 million songs including loads of new releases from popular artists.  It costs £9.99/month – and you can get a 30 day  Free Trial of Amazon Music Unlimited Here

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.

  1. Funny how Amazon can’t offer Prime Music but they can offer Music Unlimited which is extra……

  2. The two day delivery to Ireland can be a bit inconsistent. From experience, it’s about four working days before the package actually arrives (in Dublin at least).

    Also, Prime Video is a dumping ground for straight-to-VHS dreck. There’s not much there to get excited about. Netflix is far better.

    • If I ever get a delayed Prime delivery with Amazon – I just send a complaint via the website and they usually offer a free month of Prime. This has happened twice.
      Prime Free Video isn’t great for Irish residents – you’re right.
