    You might try asking on the Open Data Stackexchange. I just looked and didn't see any existing questions that matched. – mkennedy Jul 13 '16 at 16:42

Republic of Ireland unfortunately uses their own solution for postal codes called Eircode, which has closed source and working on it directly comes with some license fees, that aren't even publicly listed on their website.

I have done some research and found small database that's good enough for most use cases database of postcodes (grouped by routing keys) that also comes with names and WSG84 geographical coordinates.

The database can be found below under "IE.zip" filename: https://download.geonames.org/export/zip/
