Phone Numbers, Phone Codes and Telephone Directories in Ireland
To find a phone number in Ireland, first decide whether the number is in Eire (the Irish Republic) or Northern Ireland, as the phone books and dialling codes are different. The Ireland (Eire) telephone country code is 353, but Northern Ireland is regarded as part of the UK, so its phone country code is 44 with an area code of 28. In both Irelands, you don’t need the telephone area code if you’re dialling within the area, e.g. Dublin, itself.
When calling an Irish phone number from outside the country, you must omit the “0” from the beginning of the area code. From the Irish Republic you can dial 048 for Northern Ireland landline access (may also be dialed as an international call to the UK using 004428 ). You have to dial the complete number for mobile (cell) phones in Ireland, but miss off the preceding “0” if you’re calling from abroad.
