Your number to Ireland might start with a (+). If so…

Many international numbers now place a plus sign before the country code. The (+) means that when you’re dialing that number internationally, the national exit code has to be used too. In some cases, however, you’ll still be able to dial the “+” on a cell or VoIP phone, or simply replace the plus sign with your country’s exit code. Specifically, for calls to Ireland from the U.S. using Vonage though, you should replace the “+” with 011. They both work, but the former is simply more expedient.
