Amazon Prime members get FREE priority (2 day) delivery to Ireland on all orders of Prime eligible items.
Normally, 2 day delivery to Ireland would cost £7.49 on Amazon.
You also get free next day delivery to the UK – which is brilliant if you have friends or family in the UK to buy gifts for. (During the Covid crisis – deliveries may take a bit longer.)
The free 30 day Amazon Prime trial also includes 30 days of Prime Video .
If you are wondering – Netflix doesn’t do a free trial in Ireland – and their lowest-priced plan is €7.99 a month.

What is included in Amazon Prime in Ireland ?
- As mentioned above – you get FREE priority delivery to all addresses in Ireland on millions of Prime eligible items.

How Much Is Amazon Prime in Ireland ?
The normal price of Amazon Prime is £7.99 GBP per month.
Or it’s £79.99 GBP per year if you pay in one lump sum (that works out at £6.66 a month) . It’s the same price in Ireland as in the UK.
The best way to find out if Amazon Prime is any good for you – is to sign up for the 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 delivery to Ireland on orders over £20 is still available in 2020 for non-Prime members – but this can take 4 to 6 days and sometimes more.
Amazon Music Unlimited
Sadly – the inclusive free “Amazon Prime Music” is not available in Ireland for Amazon Prime members. But the 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.
Amazon Music Unlimited costs £9.99/month . I use it myself – and it is as good as Spotify or maybe better and it works on Amazon Echo devices, Kindle Fire, smartphones, tablets and desktop computers,
Songs can be downloaded to play offline. You can create and amend your own playlists or choose from hundreds of others already set up.
Amazon Prime members in Ireland do not get a price reduction on Amazon Music Unlimited. (In the UK Prime members get £2 off a month)
Irish residents can get a 7 day Free Trial of Amazon Music Unlimited
(The banners might say it’s 1 month free – but that is for UK Customers)
