Behind the Scenes at the Dublin Mail Centre at Christmas


Have you ever wondered what happens to your letter after you drop it in the post box? Your mail goes through quite a journey from the moment it slips into that post box.

This video from An Post is so well produced and takes you behind the scenes into the Dublin Mail Centre where all our mail gets sorted before it continues on its journey to its final destination. Everything from letters to packages gets processed by a range of sorting machinery and incredible speed throughout the night.

The Dublin Mail Centre is 1 of 4 mail centres. The others are based in Athlone, Cork and Portlaoise. Christmas is obviously the busiest time of year so remember to post early! Visit for last posting dates to ensure delivery before Christmas.
