Solo Trip to Ireland

Jump to last reply

Hi! I am a 34 year old woman from Canada and I am finally going to be booking a trip to Ireland this year. I will be going in September or October and for 2-3 weeks depending on how cheaply I can plan this trip for. I really don't have any set plans so far and I'm feeling overwhelmed about what to see, how to travel etc. I'd love any suggestions or thoughts on the best way to spend two or three weeks in Ireland. I've heard a lot of good things about Galway so I'd like to spend a bit of time there but other than that I don't know where to start. Because I will be travelling solo, I would love to find a safe way to travel and meet people along the way, or find a tour that might help with that sort of thing but honestly, I just don't know where to begin.

I do know that driving for the whole trip doesn't seem like an option on my budget. As much as I would love to travel that way, It seems like it will add quite a bit of unecessary cost. Anyone have any thoughts on that? Maybe I'm wrong?
