Amazon, which already has a significant physical presence in Ireland via the Dublin fulfillment center it opened in 2022, will now have a country-specific online presence on the Emerald Isle. The ecommerce giant will launch Amazon.ie next year, offering a localized shopping experience and promising a selection of more than 100 million products — including even more from Irish businesses — as well as faster deliveries and returns. Previously, Amazon’s Irish customers could shop the site via its online stores in other countries like the UK.

“The launch of Amazon.ie will be great news for Irish customers, and we’re looking forward to opening its virtual doors in 2025,” said John Boumphrey, Ireland and UK Country Manager at Amazon in a statement. “This underscores our continued commitment to Ireland, and will bring a wide selection of great value products with fast delivery to Irish customers, as well as provide great opportunities for small- and medium-sized Irish businesses to reach a bigger audience at home and abroad.”

More than 1,000 Irish SMBs already sell on Amazon, generating over €150 million in export sales in 2022 alone. The new online store also will be supported by the five-year delivery agreement between Amazon and An Post reached in November 2023.

Amazon already employs approximately 6,500 people in Cork, Dublin and Drogheda in a range of jobs including data engineers, operations management and finance. Amazon has invested more than €17 billion in Ireland since 2020, and Amazon Web Services’ (AWS) investment in cloud infrastructure has expanded Ireland’s economic output by almost €11.4 billion over the last decade, according to the company.
