    If I bring my laptop to Europe are there many free WIFI spots like in USA?

    Many internet cafes offer free wifi

    Just trying to decide if it's worth hauling 3.5 pound laptop around Ireland and Germany for 3.5 weeks to do emails IF I Can find WIFI access.

    Are there places in Europe with wifi? Yes.

    It is worth schlepping a laptop versus a lighter system which can provide comparable access? Maybe not.

    Havent got one of those new-fanged smarter-phones yet have you?:D

    I suspect you will actually find more wi-fi hotspots in Ireland and even more so in Germany than in the US.
    Most of the train-stations (and trains) pedestrian malls and city centres are wired etc etc

    Don't have a smart phone.

    Just remembered if I lug my laptop across Europe I don't (yet) have a 240V converter!

    Probably just go without but it's only 3.5 pounds in weight.

    Doubt you need one. Check your power supply.

    Agreed. Almost certainly just need the plug adapter for a couple bucks.
