Two suggestions: both can be done in 8 hours. Copenhagen city is very compact, so getting around never takes very long. Boat tours from Nyhavn - take the tour boat at the top of the canal (you'll know what I mean when you see it). It runs like a taxi service, you can get off at a whole load of different places including the Little Mermaid, Trekroner Fort, Opera House, Christianshavn (which I think is a nice one - you can walk to and climb atop Vor Frelsers Kirke - google it! incredible view of the city) and plenty more stops besides. Or you can stay on the boat for the duration and listen to the audio info on the various sights. The second thing I would recommend is Tivoli. The magical amusement park so wonderful Michael Jackson repeatedly tried to buy it. Not just for the kids. Full of magic plus some a variety of restaurants, at least one Michelin star joint, it boasts its own brewery and plenty of cafes, live music, theatre, oh and a roller coaster or two! Some for the more brave among us, but some lovely quaint rides too for the jitterier types. about 6 years ago
6 days in Ireland, solo female traveler. Good idea? Interested in seeing some countryside, and eating/drinking local. Flying into Dublin.
If you plan to spend any time in Dublin at all, I must recommend O'Donoghue's pub on 15 Merrion Row, Dublin 2 (it's very central South Side Dublin). They play tradition session music there every night, and you go on a Tues or Thurs night, there is music played in the back room - the kind you can sing along to, have a dance around the floor, or indeed the musicians love nothing more than for someone to come and sing a song or pick up an instrument (I ended up their percussionist for 6 months because I picked up a tambourine they brought at Christmas!) The best night out you'll have is in there. Enjoy your trip. about 7 years ago
