Make sure you take a Cirrus/Maestro cash card, will let you take cash out from almost any machine. Visa and Mastercard are definitely the two most widely accepted cards worldwide. With a combination of those three cards you'd be very unlikely to be stuck anywhere, within strking distance of a reasonably major town at least....

Yeah, I think with Cirrus/Maestro & Visa/Mastercard you should have plenty. My debet cards all have either Visa or Mastercard AND both cirrus and maestro, but not sure if you can get something like that in Ireland?
