Irish Walking Maps
In the Republic, most walkers use the Discovery Series from Ordnance Survey Ireland. These 89 folding maps have an easy-to-read scale of 1:50,000. They show major trails, roads, and landmarks such as castles and standing stones. North of the border, the Ordnance Survey of Northern Ireland has its own series of 1:50,000 Discoverer Series maps.
