If your address is correct on Google My Business, it should also appear correctly on Google Maps.
Add relevant, high-quality images to your ad. These should be photos of your business. It is recommended to add at least three interior photos, three exterior photos and a team group photo.

The business description should be short and to the point so customers can be sure they found the right listing. Your business category selection will affect how and when Google displays your listing. Be careful to choose well. Answer questions customers ask in the Q&A section. It’s helpful to set up email alerts to get notified when a new question comes up. Reviews – Encourage customers to leave reviews and engage with them once they do; Google likes that.

Add an Eircode to your business, but be careful this doesn’t change your physical address, as the Eircode can sometimes have a slightly different variance to Irish addresses.
