The Government Publications Office provides a sales outlet to the public for all government publications. Orders are accepted by telephone, email and post. The Office also publishes Iris Oifigiúil, the State's official gazette, which is published twice weekly on Tuesday and Friday in hard copy and online.
We provide a Mail Order Service for all customers, including those who previously used the Publications shop.
Due to the Covid-19 crisis, we regret that our call centre is not in operation. We will, however, continue to take e-mail orders on email@example.com
and will endeavour to respond to e-mails on the next working day.
It accepts order payments by card, cheque or postal order.
There is also a dedicated email address, with all queries responded to on the next working day:
