My Discover Ireland – How it works?

My Discover Ireland – How it works?

Discover places with My Discover Ireland, a new mapping route for Ireland.

My Discover Ireland is similar to Google Maps but with added features to aid tourists to plan their road trips and helps to find what they could visit on the way to their next destination. Many drivers unknowingly pass fantastic places that should have been visited; this can be avoided by using!

Normally when you plan your route, you put in where you’re starting from and going to destination and it would bring up the directions to follow. Using My Discover Ireland, it displays places to could be visited within 10KM on either side of the driving route. It gives you the opportunities to explore, more adventures, a break on a long drive and fresh air on the way!

How it works

1. Enter the destinations

This would be your starting point and where you want to go.
i.e Donegal to Portlaoise, Ireland

Note: Sometimes the locations need to be specific, ie Derry Northern Ireland will bring you to Northern Ireland rather Derry in Republic of Ireland.
