As a college graduation gift to myself, I have decided to embark on my first solo trip to Ireland and Scotland. I am doing in the trip in 18 days (2 travel days) in early May 2017 all by public transportation. I am very against renting a car because I will not be able to split the driving with anyone, stress of driving in a foreign country, rental cost, gas cost, and parking cost. My last three trips to Europe (England, France, Italy, Germany, Czech Rep.) I have all done by public…
I'm travelling solo for 6 days in total in Ireland during new years. I'm planning to visit Dublin for three days, including new years eve, the rest of the week I am not sure whether I should visit the west, Galway + the cliffs of moher or Northern Ireland (Belfast and giants ). Since I have only a week, I don't think I can do both. Any recommendations? Which one is safer for solo female travellers?
I've got a job lined up in Ireland starting next year, and I'm working on applying for the Working Holiday Visa. So far so good, but I'm pretty confused about the "original certificate" requirement for the education section.

I am from the U.S and interested in taking a 6-7 week solo trip to Europe summer of 2016. This is my first trip to Europe.

I am of Irish descent and thought it would be great to visit the home of my roots. Are the locals generally friendly and open to being social with U.S citizens. I've read of the thousand welcomes…
I need some advice - I live in London and I am planning a short break to the Irish west coast from Dec 24-28.
While the hostels should be open, does anyone know if buses and surf schools/rentals will be open? (apart from Xmas day). Hopefully, I can get to surf at least on 26 & 27 Dec.
I know it will be freezing, but I've left my travel plans too late and Ireland is probably the only place I can afford to travel to!
Can anyone tell me if there are trains going to Monaghan from Dublin, or, if not, a bus service?
I want to go from Dublin to the Cootehill, Co. Cavan and Co. Monaghan border area.
Hello all, June 2016 I'll be traveling to Ireland for a couple weeks. I wanted to hear from people with experience if getting around without a car is easy or not. I am not too great with directions to begin with, so I'm nervous about how to navigate the bus and trains there. Any tips/advice?
