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 Vonage uses a direct connection to get around 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 suppliers. Ensure that you include the country prefix.

Short Code use over Vodafone 27201 is highly restricted. If you are planning to use a Short Code, contact your account manager to see if usage is within the permitted range.


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

Other Features or Restrictions

Delivery Receipts
