First time & solo to Ireland - Help!

Jump to last reply

Hi fellow fodorites,

I am planning to travel to Ireland this May for ~two weeks. I have never been there before, and I'm traveling solo. (39yo female)

Here are the probs.
1) Escorted vs. self-drive. I like to do my own thing, but don't want to miss anything because I'm driving.
2) There are so many places I really want to see, but I am having difficulty narrowing it down it seems by travel times I have seen posted.
3)If I do drive, are B&Bs really the best way to go? I am not a hostel type of person, and not sure hotels are economical.

I am sooo overwhelmed, I can barely make any headway. Where do I start?
