Internet connectivity in Ireland

Travel Forums Travel Gear Internet connectivity in Ireland

I will be traveling to Ireland for a period of 4 months and will be renting an apartment. How are private telephones set up in terms of connectivity to the Internet with a provider such as AOL? Do the phones in Ireland charge by the minute? Would it be cost prohibitive if I needed to be online for 2 hours or more per day? Are there international numbers which can be dialed toll free for connection to AOL? Is it best to purchase a local ISP when in Ireland?

Thanks in advance for any assistance provided to me.

Why dont you just take a memory stick, and go to a cybercafe?

With private phones you would have to take a minimum contract phone line which would be a longer period than 4 months. Where abouts in Ireland? In all the major cities (even shopping malls!) there are cyber cafes and connection points.

If you're in Dublin, there's an Internet cafe on nearly every corner. There are at least two in the City Centre (number increasing) that I know of that charge 1 Euro per hour.

if you want to use the internet a lot you could go for Irish Broadband....it's like €18.95 a month for a 512kb connection...don't know if that's any help but you can have a look at the offer on www.irishbroadband.com

And if you book at the library, it's free. Limited time though.
