    Absolutely. As a solo female traveler, Ireland is a great place to visit. The people are friendly and it's easy to meet up with other travelers if you like. Galway is great fun and the Dingle Peninsula and Ring of Kerry are fantastic parts of the country. If you have time, check out the Burren and some of the Aran Islands. They're completely worth the sometimes rough ferry crossing. over 6 years ago

    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.

    We just spent a few nights there. Spent the last night at Generator Hostel and highly recommend it. Good value for money. Booked on hostelbookers.com and got a free Guinness with booking. Also, do the free walking tour, they pick up from Generator at 10:30 and will give you good overview for what you want to see more of. Plus they run a pub crawl each night. We are in countryside right now. Rented a car, not many hostels here but it is beautiful. Did the Rock of Cashel today and it was amazing. over 6 years ago

    Admittedly, it *was* nearly 20 years ago, but I went to Ireland as a solo female traveller for a month and loved every minute of it. I caught some buses between towns, even hitched a bit, met up with other backpackers for a few days and sometimes just joyously had time on my own. Favourite parts were the Arran Islands, Dingle Peninsula and all around Cork County where I remember some crackingly good seafood, lovely and friendly pubs and great B&B's. over 6 years ago

    I've been to Ireland twice last time was in 2010, as a fellow female traveller I would recommend doing the bus tours first especially in Dublin It gives you a sense of how far or close places are esp if you realize you can walk to it rather than taking a taxi. Checkout also the Cliffs of Moher, Galway, The Church Restaurant & Bar in Dublin, Howth esp the cliffs if you like walking,Cork, Dingle. There are so many places to experience have a great time! about 6 years ago
