What is an 1890 number?

An 1890 number is known as a LoCall number. It was devised to allow customers call businesses from all over the country, but for a flat local rate. So, you could call a business in Dublin for the same cost as calling a business around the corner.

This was originally devised before there was major competition in the telephone market in Ireland. Now, with the advent of more than just Eircom in the home landline market, and with more than just Eircell in the mobile market, call costs to 1890 numbers can vary widely – from 5c per minute (the original target price) to 31c per minute on some mobiles.
