IRELAND ELECTRONIC HELP

Jump to last reply

I traveled a lot in the 90's. So it has been awhile, much longer than I ever imagined to travel again. However I am going to Ireland in June. My first time to Europe! I am getting many mixed suggestions and reviews on adapters and or converters to use in charging my items. I will be charging my SLR camera battery, ipad, iphone and a mini Mophie. My girlfriend and I are going, as my husband refuses to ever fly again. She has the same appliances to charge. No we are not taking hair dryers, fans, electric razors. Some people tell us to bring adapters to charge. Others are saying we need converters too, so we don't blow up our equipment! I cannot hardly believe this would happen. We do not want to haul a lot of extra gear. Then someone said I need two kinds of adapters (one with the 3 square prongs), the other (3 round prongs for "older parts of Ireland). Truthfully I believe I only need the 3 prong square unit. Which one is it?

Please share your knowledge and experience asap. The electric matter is all that is left to do in preparing for our 3 week trip. We know where we want to go, and how. I think it is silly that this electric thing has become such and issue, and there are a million opinions flying at us. I want what is right, what works. We want to take what we need. We are staying in nice B&B's and a few castles. All we want to do is come home with great photographs, and an adventure we will never forget.
