An Post stamp price hike

Stamp prices at An Post have gone up from today – a standard domestic stamp has gone up from €1 to €1.10 and an international standard stamp, from €1.70 to €1.80.

The price hike is the first since April 2017 and reflects the general increase in European stamp prices over the last three years.

Email and other electronic communications have made inroads into the demand for letters and stamp prices haven risen as a result.

The company says: “An Post has invested to ensure that Ireland has one of the best postal systems in the world as it transforms from the old world of traditional letters to the new world of e-commerce parcels.”
