Amazon has been super quick if you have prime. Like one or two days. They even deliver on Saturday and Sunday and evenings so no need to worry about that.
This has been all the way through, my wife is forever ordering stuff and none has been late or even slowish

I have it on good authority that there are over 300K packages coming into Ireland every day and only 250K packages being delivered by An Post. The backlog is increasing every day for them. Apparently the bottleneck is not staff but rather the space to store these packages. Dublin Airport is suspending deliveries from China.
I think we're seeing the effects of the pandemic here.

Can you state your "authority"
I asking because I know that this is totally untrue.
An Post now have a further parcel facility in Finglas. That's three parcel distribution centres in Dublin in addition to the mails centre.They have capacity at present to deliver 3.5m parcels a week and volumes have not reached that level (its about 3m)
Parcels from abroad are totally dependent on cargo space. It's a lot better than spring and summer, but expect long delays on large parcels, lesser delays on small parcels and small delays on letters and small packets.
If you are sending stuff abroad, then the small packets (up to shoebox size) and envelopes get priority.
But, once a parcel lands, it is scanned within a few hours. There are zero delays from airport to the parcel centers. But plenty of delays at foreign airports waiting for space to travel on the skeleton flight service to Ireland
Wake me up when it's all over.

Its not about delivering parcels my postman tells me that they have much more capacity and could deliver more if necessary. The problem is that An Post DO NOT HAVE THE CAPACITY TO SORT THE MAIL.
A full week for a parcel to get from Dublin to Waterford is appallingly bad service.

I have an enterprise account with AnPost and received this from our rep yesterday.
As you are aware ecommerce parcels volume has increased significantly since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic as Irish shoppers adopted online eCommerce in greater numbers in response to public health recommendations of staying at home as much as possible.
Since we entered Level 5 of the Irish government's Plan for living with Covid-19 and the related closure of most retail outlets in Ireland, we are experiencing an earlier than usual start of the traditional Christmas peak shopping season with further increases of parcels volume through the An Post Commerce's delivery network.
For these reasons, An Post Commerce is currently operating a delivery service of an average of 3 days nationwide and up to 5 days in specific locations such as Cork city As county.
As a front line service, An Post Commerce has continued to deliver your parcels during this period despite the ongoing operational challenges and process changes that had to be implemented in order to protect its employees and customers.

As the COVID-19 situation remains fluid, your account manager will continue to update you with service level updates as required.
Many thanks for your understanding during these challenging times.

I have prime and up until a few weeks ago my Amazon parcels were taking two weeks to arrive, kept getting stuck when they arrived in Dublin. They are moving much better now but one parcel has been stuck in Park West since the 1st and several haven’t budged from parcel hub 12 since the 3rd.

Has anyone received a parcel from the UK that was sent around the 10th - 12th of November ?
Amazon sent me a parcel from the UK on the 12th and even though it has an An Post tracking number there hasn't been any updates.

No sign of any movement on this , should I be starting to get worried if it’s lost? It’s a few Santa gifts which I’m waiting on .
I see a few others have got packages from koln which were dispatched after mine .
I tried customer service of the 3 companies involved , no concrete answer from any of them where it is .
Sit tight for another while ?

I wouldn't be ordering anything from Germany. If you do a bit of research they are having problems getting stuff into Ireland and the Czech Rep. stopped taking anything over a certain size and returning them to sender.
Some stuff is coming through but serious backlogs there, nothing to do with An Post

No sign of mine either. I'm starting to think they lost a crate or something. I'm on another site where someone who ordered something from Adidas on the 20th November was contacted to say the package had been lost.
