Touch-Tone Phones?

Are phones in hotels, and pay phones, touch-tone? I know this may sound silly, but I need to know because I will need to call the U.S. from a touch-tone phone when visiting Sligo. Thank you for your help.

Have you booked your accommodation in Sligo yet? If so you could ask whether your hotel/B&B has a touch-tone phone for the use of their guests. If they don't they might be able to tell you where you could use one.

You could also try to contact Eircom (Irish phone company) under general.info@eircom.net and enquire.

All residential and office phones installed in Ireland in the last 15-20 years have been touch tone so unless you find some B&B with antique telephones you should be OK. I remember that payphones seem to have the tonepad disabled for some reason (maybe fraud?) - I haven't used one in years so I'm not sure what is the current situation. Also payphones are not as common as they used to be as Ireland has as many mobile phones as people....

Yes we've had phones in Ireland for quite some time now. :(
