Ireland: Need help deciding about maps and SIM card

Jump to last reply

My wife and I are leaving relatively soon for 12 days in Ireland. We'll fly in and out of Shannon and visit Doolin, Clifden, Dingle and Kenmare. I'll be self-driving (and no doubt driving DW nuts....).

I have a 4 year old Atlas of the roads, and a 4 year old Garmin GPS loaded with Ireland. (We were going to do this trip 4 years ago until the Icelandic volcano literally blew up those plans at the very last minute.) Would those be adequate to get us where we'll be going? Upgrading the Ireland GPS map looks to be about $90.00.

We have iPhones 5 & 5s with Verizon, both unlocked. I'm trying to figure out whether to order a prepaid SIM card and have it shipped before we leave or buy a SIM card from Tesco in Ennis. And I really don't know how much data, text, or phone minutes we'll likely need. Night need to call on google maps. Don't plan on calling home but with aging parents, who knows. Would be nice to have internet access when there's no wi-fi.

Any thoughts or recent experiences sure would be appreciated! Thanks.
