Internet access, maps

My lady geologist friend had a medical emergency so she had to cancel. My sister will substitute for her, but we will no longer have the internet access I expected. I will be able to get Wifi. What internet map & physical folding road map do you suggest. Our week long road trip is in a fortnight. Will fly into Dublin and be staying in Dylan, Donegal, New-Market-on-Fergus, and Killeney.

We used the Rough Guide folding map that I bought on Amazon for our two trips to Ireland. It served us well. Another series of maps often recommended here is the OSI (Ordnance Survey Ireland) maps. These are sets of maps that cover different areas, not one folding map like the Rough Guide one we used.

Either OSi or just the Collins (Glove box) maps and Google Maps (which is the base of many others). Consider working your route with points of interest using Google and printing these pages on A4 sheets before you leave.

When I had two weeks in Ireland I bought a dongle that gave me internet access...and had the Collins map also and an AA one.
