Ireland: SMS Features and Restrictions

Ireland is an extremely complex SMS market and numerous filters are in place. A large amount of messages are being blocked and so Nexmo uses a direct connection to get around this heavy filtering and ensure messages are delivered.

This is a fully-featured route and handset delivery receipts are supported, as is delivery to ported numbers.

Sender ID:

Numeric Sender IDs in local format might be rejected due to limitations from our suppliers (please make sure you include the country prefix).

SC use over Vodafone 27201 is highly restricted, if you are planning to use a shortcode please double check with your account manager it is within the permitted range.


There are no additional content restrictions beyond those in our Acceptable Use Policy 

Other features/restrictions of note:

Delivery Receipts:
Handset delivery receipts are supported.
