Hello you all lovely Irish folk!
I was in Dublin for one week back in 2007....All a blur now but I loved the vibe and only had one week there. I did go to Kilkenny an stay in a Bed an breakfast; went through the Castle and many other touristy things. I am going back, will be there in April. I am traveling alone and am feeling somewhat nervous about being by myself this time. Can you suggest a tour that would be OK for a single woman to go onto..maybe a day here and there which is easy to get to from my Hotel If I stay in the Dublin City? I do love all the sight seeing, but it would be nice to have maybe a tour which I could be with  other tourists just on day trips etc...I might go to the Countryside and stay there for a couple of nights to get away from the hustle an bustle. Should I stay away from certain areas!! Have heaps of questions but just thought I would start by asking If I should look at certain tours and stay away from other tours etc. I would like to go to an Irish dancing show' seems better than being by myself in a pub. Any suggestions? Oh and if you're curious, I am 47.
cheers
Jude

Hello, Judy!

Welcome to the Community!

It's been a while since you were in Dublin - It's great to hear that you are planning on visiting again!  

There are a great number of attractions to visit and tours to arrange during your visit here on the Emerald Isle.  Are there any in particular that you have in mind?  To name a couple there is Newgrange and the Hill of Tara, which can be arranged through Gray Line Tours, Day Tours Unplugged and Dublin, Differently to name a few.

If you're interested in tours within Dublin, depending on what you are interested in there is Dublin City Bike Tours, Sights of Dublin Day Tours as well as Dublin Discovered Boat Tours.  All of which guide you around and allow you to explore the beautiful city of Dublin.

If trying some great delicious food is something that interests you, then perhaps Delicious Dublin Tours to experience some of the best food Dublin has to offer.

You can also browse the attractions and activities that are available throughout Dublin, here.  There really is a wide variety of tours available to choose from.  If you have any in mind, do let us know.  Our Community members would also be happy to provide some great suggestions of their own to help you along the way!

I hope this helps.

Hi Jude,

lovely to hear your coming back to Ireland in April, maybe you would think about coming up to the Causeway Coast on your trip, my tour is suited for solo travellers, the train journey from Dublin to Coleraine in very nice and there is really good accommodation ranging from hostels to hotels here, it really would be worth an overnight stay and the locals are all very friendly.  Check out the tour on my website http://glenara-elite-travel.co.uk/north-coast-tour/

What dates will you be in Ireland?
