You might also want to look into HF Holidays, a UK-based company that does primarily walking tours, but also other types of organized tours, throughout Europe and the UK. They base in "country house hotels", and many of their itineraries include smaller villages. Website:

Or go for it on your own! Have not been to Ireland yet, but many say it's extremely friendly to solo travellers. You could try a search here for "solo Ireland" to find some posts on this subject.

I second the HF Holdiays suggestion. My wife and I have gone on four HF walking trips and met great people on each. They always include a mix of couples and singles, and it's a great way to see an area.
