Holidays in Ireland & Sweden

Anonymous

Greetings from Chicago!

 

I am planning a holiday trip to my ancestral homeland of Ireland this coming June.  As much as I wish I could stay there forever, sadly I will only be able to stay for just over 2 weeks.  While I am there I wish to activate service with a local cellular carrier, and in doing an Internet search, I found Three Ireland.

 

I will bringing my own GSM-capable phone (Samsung Galaxy S4), and would like the capability to make and receive calls, make and receive text messages, and also have data capability (4G preferred).

 

I may take a side trip up to Sweden for 4 or 5 days to meet an old friend, so roaming capabilities to other European countries will be a big plus.

 

My question to this forum is whether Three Ireland has any "Pay as you go" plans that will fill my needs.  If so, kindly advise me of the different plans and costs so I can decide which will best suit me.

 

If I can purchase a SIM card at Terminal 2 of Dublin Airport, that will be a big help so I can hit the ground running, so to speak.

 

Thanks in advance to all for your help.

And when you goto Sweden, you can roam with "Three like Home", without having to topup more.

You may have to login and enable roaming before you go.
