It’s the middle of summer and you need a break, but your friends are busy. Or maybe they’re already on vacation and you can’t afford the same luxury. I’ve got an idea that will make this August just as relaxing as your friends’ trips. Take a solo vacation in Ireland! This year, I took a solo trip to my favorite country in the world, Ireland. It was one of the best experiences of my life because it allowed me to focus completely on myself and enjoy myself without having to worry about anyone else’s needs for once. Plus, you don’t have to take my word for it—check out these other benefits of going solo.


Biking is one of the best ways to see Ireland, whether you’re a pro or a beginner. The best time to go is during the summer, when there’s less rain and more daylight hours. If you’re not sure where to begin, start by checking out these three destinations:

The west coast: It’s no secret that this part of Ireland has some of the most breathtaking scenery in all of Europe—and its remote villages are perfect for exploring on two wheels.

The southwest: Known as Connemara National Park, this area offers endless hiking and biking opportunities (and it is also home to one of our favourite hostels). Don’t miss out!

Dublin: Sure it might not be considered “outdoorsy” like other parts of Ireland but there are plenty of places where you can rent bikes and explore this lively city on two wheels (or four!).

Eating and drinking

It’s the best way to experience Irish culture. You’ll be able to try out all kinds of different dishes and see how people live their daily lives. The food is some of the best in Europe, so don’t miss out on this opportunity!

Walking and hiking on your Solo Vacation in Ireland

  • Walking is one of the simplest ways to explore Ireland. Whether you’re on an organized tour or just striking out on your own, there are plenty of hikes throughout Ireland. You can find them in national parks, along the coast and even on top of mountains!
  • Hiking is a great way to relax and unwind from a busy day. If you want to get away from it all but don’t want to be far away from civilization, hiking is perfect for you! You can find trails wherever you go in Ireland: whether it’s a small town or one with more tourists than locals like Dublin or Galway City. Even if they aren’t hiking trails themselves, many towns have paths through parks or other scenic areas where people walk their dogs every day–you might even meet some new friends! A solo vacation will give you plenty of time for reflection too–which we think makes this type of activity particularly suited towards solo travelers because there will always be something interesting around every corner (or at least another cool photo opportunity).

Shopping for woolen handcrafts

If you are looking for a souvenir from Ireland, woolen handcrafts are a good choice. You can find them in every city and town around Ireland. You can also find them in the countryside of Ireland. The best thing about buying woolen handcrafts is that local people make them and help support their families. It is also a great way to support the Irish economy!

Taking the ferry to the Aran Islands

A ferry ride to the Aran Islands will allow you to see some of the most beautiful parts of Ireland. The boat trip itself is lovely, but what really makes it worth your while is all the things you can do on the islands themselves.

The Aran Islands are a must-see for anyone who wants to experience an authentic Irish lifestyle and countryside. These three islands are located off Ireland’s western coast, between Galway City and Limerick City.

The largest island in this group, Inis Mór (or “big island”), has been inhabited since Neolithic times. You can spend days exploring its craggy landscape and visiting sites that date back thousands of years—but there’s plenty more than history here: The island also offers beautiful beaches, great fishing spots, excellent hiking trails and peaceful camping areas where you’ll feel like you’re living your own Robinson Crusoe fantasy.

solo vacation in Ireland

A solo vacation in Ireland lets you relax and really enjoy yourself.

Solo travel is an experience unlike any other, and it allows you to be truly present in your surroundings. While traveling with others can be fun, there are some benefits to taking a trip by yourself. Here are five reasons you should on a solo vacation:

  • You get to do what you want, when you want. Other people’s schedules don’t have to dictate your itinerary—you can wake up early or stay out late without feeling guilty about leaving someone behind. Whether it’s exploring all that Dublin offers or taking a quiet stroll through the rolling hills of Connemara National Park at sunset, the possibilities are endless!
  • You can eat where you want and stay at places that aren’t budget-friendly but just sound good (or maybe even have indoor plumbing). There’s no one else whose taste buds need satisfying besides yours! And with no one judging what kind of food comes out of your mouth while eating noodles in bed wearing pajamas with mismatched socks…well now we’re just getting silly here. But seriously though: Traveling alone lets


Solo travel is one of the most rewarding and liberating experiences you can have. It’s also a great way to meet people, learn about new cultures, and see places that are off the beaten path. If you’ve never considered taking a solo vacation before, now is the perfect time to plan one for yourself!
