Travel Plug Adaptor for Ireland

You are in luck! Ireland uses the same type G socket as found in the UK so you shouldn\t need any adaptors as long as your appliances have standard UK 3 pin plugs.

Please be aware that whilst a travel adaptor will allow you to physically plug a UK plug into a different socket it will not change the voltage or frequency of the supply.

Voltage - The mains voltage in Ireland is 230 V which is compatible with all UK appliances (UK voltage is currently specified as 230 V +10% / - 6%).

Frequency - The frequency in Ireland is 50 Hz which is the same as the UK.

Special considerations - "G Sockets and plugs standard as defined by NSAI I.S. 401 (Plug) I.S. 411 (Socket outlet). Type F ("Side Earth") plugs occasionally seen in old installations probably because much of the early Irish electrical network was heavily influenced by Siemens. " A "shaver" socket (similar to Type C) is sometimes found in bathrooms that will provide low current to some other plug types. These almost always have a 110 V socket and a 230 V socket in the same unit, or a switch to select voltage, which are sometimes labeled as 115 V and 230 V. The G type socket often has a on-off switch on the socket. 110 V center point earthed transformers are often used for industrial portable tools."
