Okay, it's now decided that we will purchase a pre-pay phone in Shannon or Ennis when we land in October. None of the many phones we have collected over the years are compatible with the Irish system. We will be using it as follows...
1. Emergency contact number from the US
2. Call ahead to the B&Bs we have reservations with.
3. Calls to and from Northern Ireland where we will be staying for three nights.
4. Make occasional short calls to son in the US. Time difference may not allow us to call using Skype from wifi hotspots.
I have looked at both Tesco and Vodaphone. What are your opinions?
