Does anyone know if AA batteries are readily available in Ireland? My daughter is going and I'm trying to figure out what might be useful for her to borrow from me.

(Yeah, I know, but my handle is based on background, not where I'm living...)

AA batteries are available just about anywhere.
In know Europe may seem backward but come on we are at least in the 21st century

Eneloops and a charger would be a better choice for most devices.

Primary AAs are literally almost everywhere, at least the 7 continents I visit. You cannot always find sugar-free cola, but AAs are not a problem.

Made me laugh, but its a bit insulting to ask if AA batteries are available in Ireland. Is there anywhere in the Western world you can't buy such a basic battery?

Europe has that old-fangled stuff? It's incompatible with the new stuff? Are the electrons a different shape and won't fit new devices?

As Ian suggests, Ireland like most of Europe lacks a national power grid. In fact, the last time I was there the Irish used AA batteries for nearly all their electric requirements. So, yer in luck!

Your daughter should do the Ring of Kerry if she's wondering what to see. It's perhaps the Ireland people imagine when they hear the word. A proper landscape photographer would do the place justice, but here's a taster:

I think it's insulting to say that anywhere in the western world... Frankly, anywhere in the world excepting perhaps Antarctica you should be able to find AA and AAA batteries.

Somehow those bogtrotters manage it, parsons, though it's true you're more likely to see them tucking into a cold ploughman's than a roast dinner when they finally put down their spades. You must understand that fending off leprechauns is a full-time job in Ireland, so one daren't get too cosy on a Sunday afternoon. Sunday roast? At best a well-heeled peat digger might pop out to the local for a pint of the black stuff and a bit of craic by the turf fire.

Why? The intent wasn't to infer "backwardness" but a question that relates more to current environmental laws...I was asking about plain, old, disposable alkaline batteries (she's not one to be futzing around with socket adapters and selecting the correct voltage). Come over here and try to buy an ordinary incandescent light bulb...

Useless...I know I can get them at an electronics distributor (Farnell) in Ireland, but she wouldn't be going to electronics distributors. I had previously looked up both of Ireland's two main supermarket chains and searched their websites and came up empty. I know that they are OBTAINABLE over there, I merely wanted to know if they were EASILY OBTAINABLE.

Thank you for the suggestions. I was reminded of the gorgeous scenery just last evening when we (re)watched the movie, "Leap Year." Yes, that gave me pause...she is 21, going to visit her boyfriend, and will be there over Feb. 29th. I think he has planned all sorts of Irish experiences for her (he likes to avoid things he considers "touristy").

There IS a solution and you won't like it any more than I did ($250 worth of CREE LED bulbs, THEY are bright and instant on).
