You need an adapter that looks like this one. The world traveler kit doesn't include such an adapter, it only has the "thin one" (type C), which should fit but it will be loose therefore not recommended.

I don't have experiance with ireland but I do live in the UK and I expect the situation is similar. In the UK one commonly sees generic "visitor" adaptors. These are widely available in most supermarkets and many other shops. They will look something like http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Product/partNumber/9827590.htm Typically they will accept american plugs,...

Tourist-junk shops will normally carry them. So, anywhere you see selling Shamrock-themed tat and big green Leprechaun hats are worth a shot.

Most US houses will have both 120V and 240V available at the breaker panel in a "split phase" arrangement but normally the only 240V sockets will be specific ones for high power appliances (stoves, clothes driers, etc). If you own the ...

I'm not really sure what this has got to do with travel... You will need a new PSU unless your PSU also operates at 110V. Your alternative would be to use it with a high power transformer. I would not recommend it.

As I understand it there are various categories of device that people use when taking equipment abroad. Plug adaptors simply convert the type of the plug, they do not change voltage. So they can only be used if the device is compatible with the voltage of the destination country. Thyrister or Triac based converters, work in a similar way to a lighting ...
