Tesco store Dublin airport

Hi. We are flying into Dublin in a few weeks. Would like to stop at a Tesco store on way to Kilkenny to pick up a disposable cell phone to use. Does anyone have the address of the Tesco store? Thank you!

The area right near the airport is called Swords - follow the sign from the roundabout just outside the airport. There is a Car Phone Warehouse which a lot of people mention for phones as well as bunch of other stores at the Pavillions mall about 5km away. http://www.pavilions.ie/category/store-types/electronics/ There are also larger, more big box store malls a little further away than that. Hope that helps,

We have cheap not "disposable" mobile phones this side of the Pond. If you don't want to keep the phone for future visits consider donating it to a charity shop when you leave. Kinder to the environment because the parts are are recycled or they are sent to developing countries for further use.

Thanks, Linda, for saying just what I was about to, but you say it better.

Karen - If you have a newer smart phone (or regular phone from AT&T or T-Mobile - GSM), call your carrier and see if they'll unlock it for international travel. You can just buy a SIM from Tesco, it into the phone and you'll be good to go. I have an unlocked iPhone 3 and it worked perfectly - when I was at Tesco, a sim was €10, but if you purchased a top-up of €10 or more, the SIM was free... Check what offers they have in the store - right now online it appears that a SIM is €2.50. Jim
