We provide Notary Services.  It is difficult to predict the cost of a notary without seeing the document.  However, to give you an idea, our typical fee for a simple document with one signatory is €50 where a notarial act is required.  We offer discounts for volume notarisations.  For example, a Power of Attorney is typically €100.  We will show you how to get an apostille applied as it’s a very simple process.

We can usually certify a document for €50 where a simple notarial certificate stamp is required.  More complex documents would depend on what is involved.

A Notary essentially is authorised to attest and certify deeds including conveyances, powers of attorney and other documents and to swear Affidavits and certify other documents for use abroad. A notary can:

  • Administer Oaths
  • Witness Powers of Attorney
  • Foreign Affidavits
  • Attest Signatures
  • Certify True Copies
  • Authenticate Documents
  • Give Notarial Acts
  • Swear Affidavits
  • Take Affirmations and Declarations
  • Receive and Make Protests under Mercantile Law
  • Issue notarial certificates
  • Notarise Powers of Attorney and other legal documents



The practical realities of life as a Notary in Limerick involves witnessing signatures, swearing affidavits for use abroad and certifying documents.  A Notary can certify that certain matters have been done in relation to company law and commercial transactions.

You will have to attend in person with the document and bring with you a valid form of photo ID (usually passport or driver’s license) and a utility bill or other proof of address not less than 3 months old.  If documents are being certified as true copies of originals, you will need to bring the original with you also.

If you need to get a document apostilled or authenticated, then after the notarial certificate has been applied to the document, it must be brought to the Department of Foreign Affairs for the apostille to be added.  You can find helpful instructions on the Department of Foreign Affairs website at
