For power internet users like us, a week in Dublin can cause some serious withdrawal and cost some serious dough. Eircom, the largest telecommunications operator in Ireland, offers over 1,000 WiFi hotspots in Ireland including most McDonald’s and most of Dublin’s public phone booths. The catch is that you have to pay in advance to access them.
At some hubs you will be prompted to make a payment when you open a browser, like in the Dublin Airport which costs around €3 for 30 minutes, others won't let you in at all without being a subscriber.
But when you take into consideration how much most hotels charge for in room WiFi, (we paid €20 a day at the Hilton Dublin Hotel for a connection equal to dial up in 1999) its a bargain.
