Calling abroad 

 

International calls are when you’re calling an international number (non-Irish number) from your phone when you’re in Ireland. These calls are not included in any of our memberships. 

 

There is no add-on for international calls – to make international calls simply buy some credit on top of your existing membership; you can use it for your calls and texts to your friends elsewhere on the world.  
 

Just a Heads up - Calls and texts to Irish mobile numbers in other countries are covered in your membership.

 

 

Calls to Northern Ireland 

 

Northern Ireland Mobile numbers - these numbers are classed as an international call as the UK prefix +44/0044 is used so you’ll need additional credit to make the call. 

 

Northern Ireland landlines – you can use the normal UK +44 prefix, or you can use the 048-prefix described here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Telephone_numbers_in_the_Republic_of_Ireland#Calls_to_Northern_Ireland 

 

  • A call to NI using +44 is charged as an international call at 23.37c per minute. 
  • Calls to NI using 048 are covered by your membership or add-on bundled landline calls allowance. 

 

So, if you're calling an NI landline it makes sense to use 048 rather than +44. 

 

Use the Wikipedia link above for instructions on how to use the 048 prefix (basically you replace the 028 prefix in an NI landline with 048).
