Ireland-Best way to map driving route

Hello,
I was wondering if anyone has advice on the best way to map my driving routes? I am traveling from Dublin to Kilkenny, then will be taking day trips to Waterford, Inistioge and surrounding areas. Any information on good online mapping sites is greatly appreciated.

I used the site referenced in the prior response for our trip last June and it woked out well. I'd also suggest purchasing a Michelin road map for Ireland because you'll inevitably get lost, which isn't necessarily a bad thing in Ireland, and the map will help you get back on course or be helpful if you change your travel plans while there based upon info from B&B hosts etc.

I second the recommendation for a Michelin map. We took their atlas for Great Britain and Ireland. We were very glad we had!

Don't buy just any Michelin map. Buy the most detailed (smallest scale) one you can! While getting lost can lead to some wonderful surprises, it can also be very frustrating. A really good map is your best offense.
Enjoy your trip!

You might post that very question. Others might know of online sights for purchansing the maps at a reasonable price. Also, most local retail stores like Borders don't sell the highly detailed maps.
