Bed Sizes – Standard Irish Bed Measurements

Bed Sizes – Ireland/UK ‘Standard’ Bed Sizes.  there are a number of ‘standards’ when it comes to bed and mattress sizes, but we have detailed what is generally considered to be the standard for Ireland (the same as the UK).  At KerryLinen.ie, we specialise in the most common bed sizes – Single, Double and King Size, although Superking bedding is available on request.

Bed Sizes – What are the ‘Standard’ Sizes in Ireland?

Ireland uses the same ‘standards’ as the UK.  While there are many other standards, including the American and European standards, we stick to the most common bed sizes here in Ireland.  We always recommend you measure your bed before buying bed linen.  While your bed may look like a normal Double, it could be, for example, a European size.

A standard Double sized mattress in Ireland measures 135cm x 190cm (53″ x 75″). In continental Europe however a standard double sized mattress will measure in at 140cm x 200cm (55″ x 79″), meaning your fitted sheets will be stretched to fit the bed.  with cotton Fitted Sheets, this may well cause tearing.  Not good.  Always measure your bed if you aren’t 100% sure of its size.

Single Bed Size

The standard Single Bed size in Ireland measures three feet wide, by six feet, three inches long.  That’s roughly 90cm wide by 190cm long.

Double Bed Size

The standard Double Bed size in Ireland measures four feet, six inches wide, by six feet, three inches long.  That’s roughly 135cm wide by 190cm long.

King Size Bed Size

The standard King Size Bed size in Ireland measures five feet wide, by six feet, six inches long.  That’s roughly 150cm wide by 200cm long.

Depth of Mattress

The depth of your mattress can vary, as there are no specific ‘standard’ size guidelines.  Mattress depths can vary between, roughly, 8 and 14 inches (about 20cm to 35cm).  Again, it is important to measure your mattress before you purchase any new bedding.  This applies particularly to Fitted Sheets, as they are specifically made to wrap around the corners of your mattress.

More expensive mattresses with many more layers, can be very deep – some up to 24 inches! – and you would need to buy special, ‘deep fit’ Fitted Sheets.  We currently stock one ‘deep fit’ range.
