How to Fax Ireland From the UK

The way to send a fax from the UK to Ireland with a machine is fairly straightforward, although sending a fax via email is much easier. You will need to dial the international dialing prefix for the UK first ( 00 ) followed by the country code for Ireland ( 353 ) and then the number you are trying to fax.

Format your dialing to look like this:

00 - 353 - [fax number in Ireland]

The international dialing prefix for the UK is 00. This is the recommended International Telecommunications Union (ITU) default prefix, and it is the most widely implemented international prefix in the world. Just dial '00' for an international line.

Dialing Codes and Things to Know

Note: These instructions pertain to calling the Republic of Ireland. For Northern Ireland, follow the same procedure used to fax the United Kingdom.

Is Your Machine Dialing Too Quickly?

Sometimes delayed connections in the phone switches require you to insert a pause after the international dialing prefix ( 00 ), the country code ( 353 ), and the number that you are dialing.

Some machines interpret a comma ( , ) as a pause, while other models use the pound sign ( # ).

Speed Settings

Noise on the long-distance call between the UK and Ireland may cause data loss during transmission. If this happens, try lowering the baud rate on your fax machine to 9600 baud.

Note: Lowering the baud rate will allow a more stable connection, however, it will slow down transmission. Long-distance calling charges may be more.
