I am on holiday just North of Dublin, next week, staying in a farm cottage.
Can anyone recommend a cheap dial up internet service (ideally something equivalent to the 0845 services here in the UK) I can use while I am there?


  • I looked at ,typed in payg internet Ireland and found I dont know anything about them .
    If you are looking for similar to 0845 how would you pay the bill ?
    My brother lives in Dublin and I have emailed him so if he has any ideas I will be back .

    I was thinking I would be able to pay the owner of the farm cottage for the cost of the 0845 calls.
  • I asked my brother about this .He said looked good but he has never heard of them .there is an option on there website to talk to operator ,also you cant use BT(ireland) or eirecom PAYG as you need to be an account holder .Tesco Ireland dont do internet .. Just a thought but from memory phone connections in Ireland are different to UK . You may need a different lead to connect your internet. You could ask the owner of the house about a PAYG connection they may be able to do something for you .. Otherwise try the internet cafe's .

    I'm told every Mcdonalds in Ireland have a wireless LAN. Apparently you just ask at the till when you buy your big mac and they give you the access code.

    Please note I have no experience of this so it may or may not be true.

    just checked Where are WiFi internet access
    services publicly available in Ireland?
