There is no single fixed retirement age in place in Ireland for Employees. An Employees retirement age can be set out in their Statement of Terms and Conditions of Employment. However the retirement age in an Organisation can also be an implied term and/ or be a matter of custom and practice in an Organisation. Certain public sector occupations may have a retirement age which is lower than the average – For example, the Gardaí and Defence Forces.

From the 1st of January 2014 the State Pension age in Ireland increased from the age of 65, to 66. From the 1st of January 2021 the State Pension age will increase to 67 years of age, and from 1st January 2028 this will increase to 68.
