If you are buying the phone in the US of A without a plan. You should be able to get it on a Network in Ireland if there is a network there that is compatible with the iphone. A friend of mine bought an iphone off ebay that was from the US of A and it works flawlessly with Rogers (default company for the iphone in Canada)

No, it will not work out of the box. All iPhones in the US are locked to AT&T. IF you Jailbreak, and unlock the iPhone then it'll work. Apple does not sell factory unlocked iPhones in the US. If you ever need to repair the iPhone you will need to ship the phone back to the US for repair, as well as restore your phone back to factory.

Here's a listing of iPhones made worldwide. If you buy an iPhone from certain countries, they will come factory unlocked due to their laws.
