The Dept of Communications, Energy and Natural Resources review all postal addresses and update the Eircode database every quarter. These records are entirely based on An Post’s information.

Since NUI Galway’s postal delivery address is the Mail Services Centre it is this location that has been assigned an Eircode. The Mail Centre’s Eircode and therefore the main University Eircode is H91 TK33.

The Eircode website advises that there is no mechanism by which you can apply for an Eircode. There are other locations on campus which have Eircodes including: James Hardiman Library, Corrib Village, Catering outlets, Bank of Ireland, Kingfisher and private residences which are located on Distillery Road.

Eircodes can be found at
