'Don't leave home without STREETWISE.' --The New York Times

'STREETWISE is an absolute travel essential.' --Travel + Leisure Magazine

'In a strange city, your sense of direction is only as good as the map in your hands. The best maps to carry are published by STREETWISE.' --Chicago Daily Herald

About the Author

STREETWISE® is the first map to be designed with modern graphics and is the originator of the laminated, accordion-fold map format. We’ve set the standard that every map company has imitated but never duplicated. Our mission is to make you feel comfortable, to make you feel safe in a place where you’ve never been before and to enable you to experience a familiar place more fully.

The company was founded in 1984 by Michael Brown, who had been in international publishing for many years, setting up subsidiaries for textbook publishers. In the 1970’s, Brown traveled extensively throughout Africa, India, the Middle East and Southeast Asia. Brown would take a large paper map, cut out the city center, folded it up and slip it into his pocket, thus preventing him from looking like a tourist in areas where discretion is the better part of travel. This was his tool for surviving.

After many years on the road, Brown settled back in New York and decided to start his own business, based on the adaptations he had made to maps in his travels. His goal was to give someone the ability to navigate easily in unfamiliar terrain.

He started with a new map format: the accordion fold. Such a simple idea, but at the time it was revolutionary. No more struggling to fold an awkward, oversized paper map. This new format would enable the user to blend in like a native, instead of stick out like a tourist. Brown then added lamination to ensure that the map would be a lasting tool.

More important than the format was the design of the map itself. It had to be a map that not only succeeded above and beyond any map he had used, but was esthetically appealing as well. The look of it had to be as striking as the functionality. Color was introduced in a way that was never seen before in a map - vivid purple for water, soothing gray for the background of street grids, gold to highlight elements of the map. Clarity, conciseness and convenience in a very stylish package.

Building the business was a 24 hour job. Brown sold the maps during the day, zipping around Manhattan making deliveries on his Harley Davidson. At night he packed the orders and did the design work. More titles were added, each title requiring months of research and design.

Today, STREETWISE® produces over 130 titles for major destinations, regions and countries throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, Australia, Europe, the United Kingdom and Asia. We have grown from the back of a motorcycle to selling millions of maps around the world.

Yet each title is still painstakingly researched and updated. STREETWISE® is one of the only, if not THE only map company that conducts research by walking or driving an area to ensure accuracy. After all, what good is the map if what you hold in your hands doesn’t match what you see on the street sign? This lengthy fact checking results in superior accuracy; in effect, we’ve done the work, now you have the adventure.

In the end, it’s not about the map, it’s about getting out and finding your own authentic experience wherever you go. It’s about being in a city or a region and discovering things that you never thought you would find. You can do this if you have confidence and you have confidence if you have a great map. STREETWISE® is the great map that you need.

I have bought a few Streetwise maps in the past for specific downtown city areas and found them invaluable. Therefore, when I was planning a trip to Ireland where I'd be touring the West coast in a rental car, I thought this map would be helpful. Turns out it was a waste of money. The map was really outdated (The one I received from Amazon was last updated in 2008, though in all fairness the road changes were very recent), but even had it been accurate it was in no way detailed enough to be of any value what-so-ever. You won't see much of anything sticking to motorways in Ireland. The free map provided by the rental car company was many times better. Don't waste your money on this one.

This time when I traveled to Ireland I planned to do quite a bit of driving. I'm glad I brought this little and easy to use laminated map along. Especially for driving in Dublin. This map has a great city map of Dublin, and a good map for the major motorways in the entire country, including Northern Ireland. I found this really handy and easy to use while driving, although I needed to rely on a larger multi-page street atlas for smaller towns and smaller country roads. This would be the perfect map for anyone who needs to navigate the large city of Dublin and the surrounding suburbs, or who want to make major motorway trips to other cities or points of interest.

I expected more detail but there are really only the major roads. Couldn't find any of the secondary roads that we plan to travel on. The format (laminated, accordion-fold) is great and it would be easy to take with you. Should last well. I guess for what I need, it would need to be larger and therefore not as convenient. Hard to have everything.

It claims a publication date of 2013. However, Ireland's only east-west superhighway, M6, is not even on the map, despite M6 having been completed in 2009. C'mon, Amazon, don't allow this kind of dishonest product selling!

I like the Streetwise map series and have several cities in my possession, but have difficulty reading the small print at times.They are very sturdy and the perfect size for purse or pocket.

This is a small accordion map, not really any more detailed than what's inside the front cover of any travel guide to Ireland. The scale is too small to be helpful. Should cost about a buck or be free at a gas station.

I probably should have read the description - I would have found out how small this map is. Best thing about it is that it's laminated, and given typical Irish weather, that should be helpful.
