GeoDirectory is jointly developed by An Post and Ordnance Survey Ireland (OSi) – two of the State’s most reliable institutions. Their years of experience and expertise have been combined to create a database of over 1.9 million buildings and 2.3 million addresses throughout Ireland.
GeoDirectory gives companies and organisations the power to accurately know where both residential and business buildings are located in Ireland. GeoDirectory gives each property a standardised eight digit code. It classifies each building as being either residential or commercial. Each building is located to within a metre with pinpoint accuracy. GeoDirectory also gives further breakdowns of information such as townlands, electoral and county divisions.

Yes. GeoDirectory combines An Post’s resources with the cutting-edge location technology of Ordnance Survey Ireland to deliver the most comprehensive and accurate database of over 2.2 million Irish addresses.
The An Post GeoDirectory database holds no personal information and therefore is unaffected by the General Data Protection Regulation.
GeoDirectory helps businesses to operate more effectively. Our vast store of information is used to simplify the management of customer contact information and to identify potential new customers. GeoDirectory allows customers to provide Internet location-based services or improve the efficiency and accuracy of delivery route design.
GeoDirectory is a powerful business tool that, alongside other data such as the national census or a company’s own customer profiles, can help identify the best sites for business location or pinpoint the most effective advertising sites or reveal geographical trends and patterns that can be visualised when displayed on a map.
You will be amazed at what GeoDirectory can deliver. GeoDirectory is so powerful it can even identify target markets by income group, age profile, home ownership and other criteria (used in conjunction with CSO data). Fnd out more here.

Every quarter An Post’s delivery staff is debriefed for ‘on the ground intelligence’. This is fed into a database by a dedicated team of support staff who are regular communication with local authority planning departments. This information is then geocoded by Ordnance Survey Ireland. We add in feedback from existing customers and then these updates are available to our existing clients free of charge.
No address database can ever remain static so every year GeoDirectory makes up to 600,000 changes (close a third of the database) as new buildings are constructed, addresses are amended or reclassified, as companies relocate and as new companies are established while others cease trading.
