Breakfast Stamps Promote ‘Full Irish’

An Post has unveiled four new stamps celebrating the most important meal of the day – breakfast. The new stamps also support the Irish tourism and hospitality sector’s world-renowned reputation for giving tourists a warm Irish welcome and serving delicious food.

Designed by Irish illustrator Ailbhe Phelan, the Irish breakfast stamps feature a range of Irish breakfast options including a fresh fruit smoothie; a twist on the continental option with Irish soda bread, jam and honey; a comforting bowl of porridge with seasonal fruits; and of course, the iconic "Full Irish".

Aileen Mooney of An Post Irish Stamps said the colourful and uplifting stamp illustrations will be much appreciated by stamp collectors and people involved in the food industry across the world.

The stamp set comprising two National stamps (€1.25 each) for standard letters within the island of Ireland and two Worldwide stamps (€2.20 each) for standard letters travelling across the globe are available at main Post Offices and online at (with free delivery).
