What Plugs are Used in Ireland?

It might be a boring question, but if you’ve ever travelled beyond your own shores you’ll know just how important it is to know what plugs are used in Ireland.

Luckily for you, the answer is easy to remember. Ireland uses the same plugs as the United Kingdom!

Perfect if you happen to be travelling between both nations.

What Plugs are Used in Ireland?

Ireland uses Type G electrical plugs, also known as British Standard BS 1363 plugs.

These plugs feature three rectangular prongs in a triangular arrangement and the standard voltage in Ireland is 230V, and the frequency is 50Hz.

We have no idea why the same plug is shared between both nations, but sheer proximity probably has something to do with. Simply making it easier for everyone constantly travelling between the Emerald Isle and the UK.

It also helps as Northern Ireland, whilst being part of the island of Ireland, falls under UK jurisdiction, so it’s good to make things easier for all of us on the island!
