Traveling Ireland Alone

Jump to last reply

I am a 27 year old female who is thinking about traveling Ireland on my own after my travel partner fell through and other friends of mine either have no interest or can't afford traveling abroad at the moment. I planned to fly into Dublin and get down the south coast and then swing up to Shannon and fly out from there. I've pretty much ruled out driving alone, but would like to either take trains or busses or find a good tour group. I have traveled abroad before, just not in Europe. I lived in Australia for 5 months and I would consider myself to be relatively saavy when it comes to traveling.

So my question. 1) Is traveling Ireland rather safe for a 27 year old woman?
2) Anyone have any good tour groups to go along with or would busses and/or trains be best to get to where I want to go? I know tour groups are a little more structure and I'd like some flexibility.

I plan on being in Ireland about 10 days.

Thanks for any tips in advance!
