Solo travel experience

I went to Ireland solo and felt totally safe. It was easy to get around and I had a great time. I rented a car and drove all over the country. Giants Causeway, Aran Island, Cliffs of Moher, and Dromoland Castle were a few of my favorites.

Solo travel experience

Ireland is the most beautiful, most amazing place I've ever been, spent there a month solo. First ever place I spent that much time there solo and it touched and captured my heart like no other. I'm pretty sure nothing in the world will ever top Ireland for me. Gorgeous scenery with such warm and welcoming people and beautiful rich history and legends.

Solo travel experience

I loved Ireland. I went all the way from Dublin down to the ring of Kerry, up to Galway and Cliffs of Moher, and then up to Belfast and Giants Causeway. It was an incredible trip and very easy. I'd love to do it again.

Solo travelI am off on a 5-day trip to Ireland.

I am off on a 5-day trip to Ireland. If anyone has an itinerary to share would be great. I plan to spend 2 days in Dublin exploring as much as I can on foot, 1 day on a cliff of Moher tour, 1 day Kilkenny tour, and possibly 1 day going to Belfast. Has anyone done the Belfast tour? Do you recommend it? Is Kilkenny with the day trip? Any other must-see things to do or see that are off the beaten ...
