Ireland Prepaid SIM Card

For those times when you just need to get in touch with someone in Ireland or back home, prepaid SIM cards offer you the benefits of using your own phone at local rates. Simply replace your SIM card with a prepaid Ireland SIM card and you will be set up to make all those important phone calls and send quick messages across the world, without paying excessively high roaming costs.

And unlike home, your Ireland SIM card and cell phone service is prepaid so there is no need for a contract.
