USA Cell Phone - use in Ireland?

Jump to last reply

I apologize for not being as technically advanced as most cell phone users today, but have a simple (I hope) question. I have a prepaid T-mobile phone - basic phone for emergency use. I would like to have the security of a cell phone available for use while on our Ireland adventure this Septemeber. I only want to use the phone to confirm ressies and, while hopefully not needed, potentially call our B&B's and let them know we are lost or will be late. So, no fancy usage...web, cameras, etc.....and very few minutes (we hope).

Is it as simple as buying just a SIM card and that is it? If so, can I purchase one of these at the Shannon airport and how much do they generally run? If it is not that simple, what do you recommend?
