Our community member is correct in that the iPhone 8 is unlocked, as all of our 4G devices are not locked. Are you going to be purchasing a SIM card in Ireland? If so, then an international plan with us would not be needed. This is because you would be using a SIM card with an Ireland wireless carrier. Does this part make sense?
