Unlimited¹ calling to the USA from Ireland!

If you’re heading to the Emerald Isle for a semester, year or full degree program abroad, then calling the US from Ireland inexpensively probably just became your top priority. We can help.

Ireland is a relatively small island nation of about 6 1/2 million people, but, in contrast to its size, Ireland’s impact on Western culture has been enormous. A long history of influence in the arts and sciences combined with friendly village culture and an English-speaking population creates a perfect Old World setting for any American student venturing out into the world for the first time. Once you get there, you’ll need to figure out how to call America from Ireland. But international calls are really expensive, right?

Wrong. Not with Vonage World®. It’s our top worldwide calling plan for a reason. A low monthly fee + advanced technology + easy to use = happy customers all over the globe. All you need to do is sign up for the plan and we’ll send you a Vonage Box™. You can either have your family ship it to you in Ireland, or you can pack and take it with you on your own. After arriving at your new dorm or flat, all you need do is plug the box into a high-speed Internet connection and start calling. The key to affordable long distance calling is that Vonage World uses broadband web access to place calls. You’ll be calling America from Ireland through your own US number, which we’ll have already remotely assigned to your Vonage Box. Call the US from Ireland to both landline and cell phones! Your other friends or family can call you anytime, directly on their main Vonage landline. Plus when you return from studying abroad, you can still use the same box and phone number back in the US.

Now that you know how to call the USA from Ireland, it’s time to do some research on your temporary new home. What awaits you, young world traveller when you get to Ireland? A great deal, in fact!

    • Surf and turf. From surfable coastal waters and guided boat tours, to myriad landmarks, festivals and pubs, you can explore Ireland’s sea and land your whole life and never be done with it. It’s also a highly backpack-able, largely rural nation with an extremely friendly populace. Meaning you can hitch a ride safely and without too much trouble. Hitchhiking in Ireland is nothing like it is in the States. It’s considered a part of the national identity and a time-tested cultural phenomenon.


    • You can take that to the bank. International fees can be quite steep on financial transactions. That’s why you should take cash or traveler’s checks with you and deposit the funds in an Irish bank once you’ve put down some roots and know where you’ll be living for the foreseeable future.


  • Do NOT “milk” it. Milk in Ireland is much fattier than ours in the US, sometimes as high as 10% fat in content! Many young scholars put on what is tenderly known as “the freshman 15.” Chances are, though, you’re in your second or third year at least, so give your fellow scholars a heads-up on the potential dairy disaster waiting to happen to their bodies.

By now you’ve probably decided the way that’s best for you regarding how to call the US from Ireland, Vonage World or Vonage Mobile. So make all the calls you want when in Ireland without fear of going to the poorhouse!
