If possible dont use the phone line in hotels the hotel usually add on their own (rip off) charges. a few hotels do provide free wireless access (better than phone) for their guests though

Telephone sockets in the Republic of Ireland are RJ11 (the same as what you have in the USA) so you can plug straight in (dont forget to bring a cable) If youre spending any time in Northern Ireland youll need an adaptor for the UK phone sockets though. Electricity is 230 Volts and UK style BS1362 three pin sockets are used almost everywhere.

AOL (as far as I know) dont operate in Southern Ireland but here are some dialup numbers and tech data for some Irish ISP's (local call rate -Cheapest after 6pm or all day on Sat/Sun)
