Is there no hope of finding functional wifi and internet  in Dublin?
Whenever I am in Dublin I have phone and internet issues, which, as an online English teacher, I cannot afford. My students suffer, my company looks bad, and I look worse, whenever I try to do my work in Dublin.

Do I need to skip Dublin when it comes to sojourning upon the earth? Or is there some kind of trick or knack?

Hi Natalie, 

So sorry to hear that you've been having trouble connecting to the WiFi in Dublin! You mentioned that you had both internet and phone issues while you're in the city. Would it be an option to buy an Irish SIM card with data so you can use it while you're here? There is a useful thread called 'Mobile Phone use in Ireland' which might be of interest.

You will also find that libraries, hotels, cafe's and pubs offer free WiFi to their customers, and it is also possible to visit one of the Internet Cafe's. 

Maybe there is another member of the Community with another tip, and if there is anything else, please don't hesitate to get in touch!

Hi Natalie, 

You could use an eSIM if you're a solo traveler and there is an Irish Company called WiFicandy who offers eSIM services for travelers.
Alternatively if you're traveling in a group, a portable WiFi would work best, it serves 8-10 devices simultaneously with unlimited high-speed 4G data and a reliable network connection on the go. Again, this is also offered by WiFicandy, you can check their website www.wificandy.ie
