Teen traveling to England and Ireland

Jump to last reply

I have a 21 year old studying abroad in Newcastle England from Jan. to June. I have a 17 yr old who wants to visit her sister for 2 weeks at the end of June. My college age daughter will be out of the dorms by then, and I'm not sure about them touring England and Ireland alone. Any thoughts? Do I let the 17 yr old go? If so, suggestions where to go and what to do on a budget. Safety is #1 concern. My 17 yr old loves the seashore so any trips to the coast would be helpful. They are open to suggestions such as molding the trip to Scotland and England to avoid any issues with traveling and booking places to stay in Ireland.

So I need to know:
1) Is this feasible and safe?
2) Where to go in England, where to stay and how to travel in the country (bus, train)
3) Would England and Scotland be more feasible than England and Ireland.
4) The entire trip would be pretty low budget.....
5) Are Hostels safe?
