I’m travelling alone to Ireland and am quite shy. How can I meet people during my trip to Ireland?

Put a smile on your face and you’ll find the welcomes are warm everywhere you go around Ireland! The Irish pub, for instance, is unique in that it’s far more of a meeting place than anything else. So don’t be afraid to pop in, sit at the bar and chat away to the bartender and anyone else who happens to be next to you, for that matter. 

If you’re in Dublin, try out Whelan’s or the Merchant’s Arch; both great locations for music, good food, and fun! Over on the Wild Atlantic way, Galway’s Roisin Dubh has everything from open mic nights to silent discos. You might enjoy McCracken’s Cafe Bar in a historic area of Belfast, where you can listen to traditional music from the island. Belfast Festivals are a great opportunity to meet people, too: Check out Westmeath’s Body and Soul at Ballinlough Castle, or Belfast’s Belsonic festival – both filled with people ready to enjoy music and have a good time.  

One of the best ways to explore Ireland as a tourist is via bus. Tour buses are filled with other people who are just as excited and eager to see the sights of the island as you! For a more personal tour, discover Belfast with a Black Taxi Cab tour, where you see the city through the eyes of the local drivers.

Shared experiences also bring people together. Try a Slow Adventure tour in Northern Ireland, which takes you off the beaten track for foraging lessons, cycling or horseback riding. Huddle together in fright with new friends on the ghost tour of medieval Kilkenny, or brave the dark waters of Lough Hyne in West Cork on a nighttime kayak tour

No matter what, the welcomes around here are so warm you could wrap yourself up in them... Does our community have any suggestions for friendship making in Ireland?

B&Bs are an ideal place to stay if you are travelling solo and looking to soak up the unique Irish experience.  With welcoming hosts, safe surroundings, friendly local people and a range of amenities on the doorstep of every B&B, there really is no better place to stay.

Travelling solo in Ireland

Teryle Broughan visited Ireland as a solo traveller and she highly recommends it! Below is a link to her personal account of the wonderful time she had travelling around Ireland.

Teryle’s Solo Travelling Experience

Staying in a B&B in Ireland is a unique experience and one that will add a special touch to your Irish holiday experience. Although they are referred to as a ‘Bed and Breakfast’, there is so much more to staying in an Irish B&B.

Hope that you have a wonderful holiday!

Hallo,
auch ich war alleine in Dublin. Da ich nicht wusste ob ich mich abends alleine in einen Pub oder in ein Restaurant trauen würde, habe ich das Cassidy Hotel gebucht - mit Restaurant und eigenen Pub. Ich würde sehr freundlich empfangen und hatte als Raucher in der „Raucherecke“ sehr schnell nette Gespräche mit anderen Gästen - ebenso im Pub. Bei uns in Deutschland setzt man sich nicht zu Anderen an den Tisch, das wird meistens als störend empfunden. In Irland wurde ich sehr schnell gefragt, ob ich mich dazu setzen möchte - und schon war eine nette Unterhaltung am Laufen.
Für den nächsten Tag habe ich einen Busausflug nach Malahide Castle und Howth gebucht und - auch bedingt durch unseren tollen Reiseleiter - kamen wir Reisegäste schnell untereinander ins Gespräch.
Mein Eindruck war, daß sich die Iren mit ihrer Hilfsbereitschaft und ihrer Freundlichkeit gerne mit Besuchern ihres Landes unterhalten.
Im nächsten Jahr werde ich - wieder alleine - für 9 Tage nach Irland reisen - ohne Bedenken, daß ich mit Niemandem in Kontakt kommen könnte.
Ich wünsche - nein ich bin mir sicher - daß Du viel Spaß auf Deiner Reise nach Irland haben wirst! 🍀
