If you are planning on studying at SHU in Dingle for a semester, we recommend you have a working, unlocked cell phone. We will supply you with an Irish sim card and pre-paid phone credit upon arrival, to get you started. You will be on the Prepay Option, which allows a customer to ‘top up’ with credit as and when required. Credit can be purchased online, at an ATM and in stores. Students generally spend $25 per month on credit
If you are planning on a short-term program, we recommend that you have a working cell phone with a data plan which provides minutes while abroad. You are encouraged to research international phone plan.
Free WIFI is available on campus, at all accommodation and most bars and restaurants to allow you to use iMessage, WhatsApp, GroupMe etc. to keep in contact with your program leaders, family and friends.
