    You can't take any .ie website for granted that it's Irish. A prime example, LaptopsDirect.ie. They are based in the UK with a "office" in Ireland. The only thing you need, as a business selling crap, to get a .ie website, is proof that you sell to Ireland (ie: an invoice). I may be simplifying it a bit, but basically anyone who sells anything in Ireland can get a .ie website. And that website doesn't have to tell you they're not actually based in Ireland. The crowd over it basically say to check delivery, and if it's over a week it's outside Ireland, over 2 weeks it's outside the EU. Great advice from the people selling .ie sites.

    Also, avoid LaptopsDirect.ie. They're useless. Like, horribly bad useless. They couldn't give a flying hoot about Irish customers. They can't even contact their own couriers!

    All I can advise is to check the "About us" section, google the address and if Irish see if it's a business or some non-descript building. If the latter, I wouldn't be using. Nothing but hassle from UK based sites since Brexit. Buy local!

    A quick google will tell you that a website with ".is" is for Iceland as it's "Ísland" in their own language.

    Wouldn't that be easier than posting a badly phrased cryptic question here?

    Only now do I understand the question asked...

    Everything I don't like is either woke or fascist - possibly both - pick one.
