The voltage is not exact, but the difference is usually tolerable by electrical devices. Its mostly safe to plug your electrical apparatus from Spain in Ireland without a voltage adapter. If you have any concerns with a special device i.e. a medical device, you probably want to seek further professional help.

You will be able to plug the devices directly in Ireland (please read other sections of this reports in regards to voltage, etc.). Perhaps you will need adapters for some sockets, but it is usually easier to find adapters at destination if your plug is already being used in the country. Sometimes different cities uses different systems, you might need to do a bit more of research. If you find more information please let us know.

Front Back

This adapter allows you to use plugs type: A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, K, L into outlets type: M.

This adapter is extremely generic without loose terminal and finger protection, it does have earth pass-though which is a good thing; but it will not have a good grip because it support so many different plug types in only three generic slots; we don't recommend this adapter unless no better alternative can be found. i.e. a more expensive one.

Front Back

This adapter allows you to use plugs type: A, B, C, D, E, F, M into outlets type: G.

This is a very cheap adapter without loose terminal and finger protection; it does have earth pass-though (good); but no good grip because of so many different supported plugs. We recommend to use a more expensive option if available.
