10 Solo Holidays in Ireland To Try This Year

Sarah Silver Strand Beach Mayo (1)

From cycling trips to cookery courses, spa breaks to small group tours, I’ve got ten great ideas for solo holidays in Ireland.

Solo travel gives you a great sense of freedom – you can do what you want, when you want. There is no dinner debate, if you want fine dining or a takeaway – the choice if yours. If you want to spend your time lying in bed, in a shopping centre, or climbing a mountain – you decide. So why not step outside your comfort zone and think about trying solo holidays in Ireland this year?
 

 

 
There has never been a better year to try solo holidays in Ireland. We have spent the past year being discouraged from meeting people outside our bubble, with the result that we have got used to being on our own. Solo walks or hikes are a regular occurrence, regardless of our relationship status, and the thought of being in crowded shops or bars is not very appealing anymore.

paddle boards for solo travellers.

Outdoor pursuits are what we crave right now. We want to discover new forests walks, hike majestic mountains, and stumble upon hidden beaches. Luckily we can do all of this in Ireland, and solo travellers can enjoy these experiences without some of the fears they may have if travelling solo in a strange country.
 

 

 
Ironically, Ireland is considered one of the best countries in the world to travel solo – so we should probably consider ourselves fortunate that we live here! There is no culture or language barrier to worry about, and where else would it feel normal to buy a stranger a pint? Remember we are the island of 1000 welcomes after all.

Like all forms of travel, there are different types of solo holidays in Ireland to suit all tastes and budgets. Experienced solo travellers may want to stay in a hostel and mingle with backpackers, while others may wish to rent a seaside cottage and enjoy the peace and serenity of the Wild Atlantic Way. There are also some great organised tours available, where you can enjoy some of Ireland’s top attractions in a group setting – this is a great way to meet new friends.
 

 

 
As much as I love travelling with my family, I enjoy staying alone in a hotel too. I love dining in a hotel restaurant and having a drink in bar. As a resident there is no fear of walking into the bar alone, it almost feels like home. I also love the flexibility of room service and the luxury of a freshly made bed with crisp cotton sheets! I have travelled solo overseas on a few occasions – so if you are looking for travel inspiration for 2022, this post might be of interest.

I think it is fair to say that there are solo holidays in Ireland to suit everyone out there, its just a matter of finding the right one to suit you – hopefully one of these will do the trick.
 

 

 

1. Hike Donegal and the Causeway Coast with Wilderness Ireland

A post shared by Sarah Slattery – Travel Expert (@the_travel_expert)

It may sound like a contradiction but group tours are actually very popular with solo travellers. You can enjoy all the freedom of travelling alone, but enjoy the company and security of travelling with like minded people.

If you want to explore some of Ireland’s rugged coastline or remote villages, Wilderness Ireland have a wide range of guided tours available and their maximum group size is eight. Walking holidays and cycling trips are some of their most popular, and all of their tours involve an adventure activity – so a certain level of fitness is required. All tours include accommodation, transport and meals, and single supplements are available for €250 for week long trip.  

I like their Donegal and Causeway Coast week long trip that takes in the Giant’s Causeway, Rathlin Island, Malin Head, the Slieve League Cliffs & Glenveagh National Park over seven days. Price from €1795 including hotels and meals, plus €250 for single supplement.

2. Book a great value spa break at Falls Hotel, Clare

There are few hotels that offer good single room rates, but the Falls Hotel in Clare is one of them. There is a swimming pool, fitness centre and award-winning spa on site. The Falls Hotel & Spa is ideally situated to explore the Wild Atlantic Way, with the Cliffs of Moher and the lively town of Doolin less than 15 minutes away. You can also reduce your carbon footprint by staying here – the Falls Hotel & Spa gets its electricity from the river that runs alongside it.

Price on the 13th of June for a two-night stay is only €160

3. Book a beach front cottage on the Wild Atlantic Way

If you like the idea of sea views and a good book, then why not book a cottage beside the sea? There are so many to choose from, and they are great value if you have the luxury of being able to travel off peak. This luxurious stone cottage in Donegal is located beside St. Johns Point, it is ideally located to explore the Wild Atlantic Way, Slieve League Cliffs and Donegal’s glorious beaches.

3. Enjoy a city break in Kilkenny  

Kilkenny is a great choice for solo holidays in Ireland.

If you looking for solo holidays in Ireland and don’t have a car, then look no further than Kilkenny. Many of Kilkenny’s top attractions are located in the heart of the city, and you can get there by train from most Irish cities. The Medieval Mile pass includes access to many top attractions including Kilkenny Castle, the Medieval Mile Museum, Rothe House and Garden, Shenanigans Walking Tour and Garden and the Smithwick’s Experience.

There are many hotels to choose from in the centre of town. The 4-star Kilkenny Hibernian Hotel have single rooms from €122 per night including breakfast in July and August.

4. Book a B&B – there are over 700 to choose from in Ireland

b&bs in Ireland are a great value option for solo travel.

Remember B&B’s? With holiday homes and Airbnbs’s cropping up all over the place, we tend to overlook our world famous B&Bs that have been welcoming visitors for nearly 50 years. Ironically, Homestays are very much in vogue all over the world – perhaps they need to change the name?
 

 

 
B&BIreland have a super website where you can search by destination and price. All of their members have independently owned quality assured B&B’s. I had a quick look and found a double room for sole use in Kingstown House in Clifden in Connemara from €43.50 in July. It happens to have a guest rating of 9.4 out of 10, and remember breakfast is included. B&Bs are probably the best way to enjoy solo holidays in Ireland if you are on a budget.

5. Walk the Kingdom of Kerry with TDactive Holidays

kerry walking holidays for solo travel in ireland

You may be familiar with Travel Department and TDactive holidays for overseas travel, but they also organise guided group tours in Ireland. The average size group tour is 20-25 passengers and accommodation and meals are included. This particular trip is based in Killarney and includes three guided walking trips with visits to Killarney National Park, Knocknadobar Mountain and the Dingle Peninsula.

Price is €599 for a four-night trip including hotels and meals. Single supplement is €129.

A post shared by Sarah Slattery – Travel Expert (@the_travel_expert)

I think Mayo is a great destination for solo holidays in Ireland – there are so many gorgeous places to explore, including some amazing beaches that are devoid of crowds, even in the peak summer months. You can choose to stay in the lively town of Westport and enjoy its vibrant bar and restaurant scene, or opt for a quite cottage in Achill or one of the many beach towns along the coast.
 

 

 
I suggest cycling along the Great Western Greenway from Westport into Achill. You can choose to cycle the full 42km, or pick up the trail in the coastal towns of Newport or Mulranny and cycle part of it. Some of Ireland’s best beaches are in Achill Island, including Keem Bay where these photos were taken.

7. Take a cookery course at Dunbrody House, Wexford

A post shared by Sarah Slattery – Travel Expert (@the_travel_expert)

I had the pleasure of staying in Dunbrody House a few years ago and I could think of nothing better for someone who likes cooking and fancies an activity break. The Dunbrody Cookery School has been designed to cater for all levels of cooks, and have been personally designed by Celebrity Masterchef Kevin Dundon.
 

 

 
Cookery Courses are priced at €175 for a one day course, or €325 for a two day course and the maximum class size currently is six. For the ultimate foodies there is a Five Day Masterclass for €750, with a class size of five. Prices from €130 per room per night in Dunbrody House with breakfast included.

8. Enjoy a yoga retreat with Cliffs of Moher Retreats

Cliffs of Moher retreats offer a wide selection of retreats throughout the year. They are ideal if you are looking for solo holidays where you can unwind, reflect and rest. The yoga studio overlooks the Atlantic Ocean, and there is a sauna and hot tub to add to the experience. Healthy and nutritious meals are included and you have free time in the afternoon to explore the local area. 

Two-night Rest, Recover and Reflect retreats cost from €555 in single room.

9. Book a luxury break in Northern Ireland

Slieve Donard Hotel is the best beach hotel in Northern Ireland

Five star hotels can be expensive for solo travellers, but sometimes there are luxurious four-star hotels that are great alternatives. The Slieve Donard Resort & Spa in Co. Down is one of those hotels. Its luxury two floor spa, 20 metre pool and superb facilities will make it hard to leave, but one of the other reasons that I am recommending it for solo holidays in Ireland is its superb location.
 

 

 
It is located on a gorgeous beach with stunning views of the Mourne Mountains, and you are within walking distance of the shops, bars and restaurants in Newcastle town. There are 44 walking trails in the surrounding areas, with the Mourne Mountains winning the Best Walking Destination in Northern Ireland in WalkNI’s inaugural awards.

 

Prices from £140 per room per night including breakfast. For further information or to book contact sales@hastingshotels.com and quote ‘Hotel Office’ (hastingshotels.com 028 4372 1066

And now for something completely different….

Feel like Bear Grylls after completing this two-day Bushcraft Skills course in West Cork. You will learn how to forage, fish, and cook your own food, how to build a fire, and you will overnight in the wild in a shelter that you have built. Cost from €250 per person and beginners are welcome.

My Top Ten Solo Holidays

shutterstock_1087516775-compressor

Whether you want to see Machu Picchu at sunrise, book a wellness retreat in Bali, or just escape ordinary life for a few days, check out my top ten solo holidays and get planning your next break away.

 

See yourself as a bit of Shirley Valentine? Or maybe you are more a Motorcycle Diaries kind of guy? Regardless of your motives or desires for travel, solo holidays help you to leap beyond your comfort zone and discover things about yourself and your surroundings, that you may never have discovered if travelling with a partner. I have been fortunate to holiday in many far flung destinations with my family, but there is something liberating about travelling alone…

solo holidays

The thrills start at the airport for me. To be able to wander around Duty Free without kids in tow, is bliss! I also love plane journeys when travelling alone. I watch all the girly movies I never get to see at home, while enjoying a few glasses of wine.
 

 

 
Once you get to your destination, you don’t have to have the Spanish inquisition about where you want to go for dinner – you can dine where ever you want. Want to spend two hours shopping in your favourite department store? Go for it! Maybe there is a long hike you want to try, or a spa day is badly needed  – you don’t need to consult with anyone, you can just go on your own. You will be surprised at how much you learn about yourself, and how more independent you will become when you travel solo.

cruise holidays are ideal for solo travel

There are many different ways to enjoy solo travel – hopefully my list of top ten solo holidays will inspire you to plan your next trip away.

 

 

 

 

 

1. City breaks: Toulouse

City breaks are a good choice if you fancy a short break. If it is your first solo holiday and you are a little anxious, go to a city that you have been to before. You will feel comfortable and safe wandering around on your own. Alternatively choose somewhere that is compact and easy to navigate, like Porto, or Toulouse. Once you get used to solo holidays you will be surprised how much easier it becomes. You will then happily hop on a plane to a new city for your next solo holiday. 

solo holidays - city breaks
 

 

 
Despite being France’s fourth largest city, Toulouse feels like a small town. It is just a short distance from the airport and very easy to navigate on foot. I loved wandering around its colourful streets and ancient centre. The Victor Hugo market is a food lovers paradise and I really enjoyed seeing Concorde at the Aeroscopia Aeronautical Museum.  You can also take a tour of the Airbus factory, although you need to pre-book the tour. Toulouse is a university town and is vibrant and uplifting – it is a great choice for a solo holiday.

I really enjoyed strolling around #Toulouse on my own, I think I’m ready for some #solotravel 🤔 I even managed to take this pic with a selfie stick 🙌 Toulouse is a great city if you do want to try it solo. It’s only 2 hours flight with @aerlingus and a 15 minute taxi ride to the centre of town. The city is really easy to navigate and feels really safe walking alone. Anyone else like to travel solo? . . . . . . . . #visiteztoulouse @atout_france @travelmedia.ie #lavillerose #igerstoulouse #presstrip @VisitToulouse #toulousemaville #visitfrance #oldtown #beautifuldestinations #citiesofeurope #beautifulcities #travelblogger #travelgram #wearetravelgirls #irishtravelblogger #viewsofinstagram #cityscape #sheisnotlost #dametraveller #citybreak #travelbloggerlife #riverwalk #garonne #selfiestick #travellingsolo

2. Wellness holidays: The Body Holiday, St. Lucia

Wellness holidays are becoming more and more popular for solo holidays. Julia Roberts in the movie Eat Pray Love, had us all wishing to go to on a retreat in Bali, while fitness boot-camps and spa breaks are now the norm.  There are many ways to book a wellness break. You can opt for a familiar beach resort and book a flight and hotel with a spa, or opt for on retreat. Wellness breaks are ideal for solo travellers, so it can be a good place to meet like minded travellers.

A post shared by BodyHoliday Saint Lucia (@thebodyholiday) on

 

The Body Holiday is the ultimate wellness all-inclusive resort and it dedicates the month of September to solo travellers. Caribtours, the Caribbean specialists, have secured a massive saving for their September Solo’s campaign – you can enjoy this luxury 5-star resort with no single supplement! You will enjoy a personalised schedule of spa treatments, fitness classes and water sports with celebrity fitness trainers and dancers, as well as meals and premium drinks – all included in the cost of your holiday.
 

 

 
The Body Holiday can be whatever you want it to be. You can abseil down a river gorge in the morning, enjoy a spa treatment in the afternoon, and sip champagne at sunset. Where else would you find all this included in the cost of your stay?

3. Cruises: 

Cruises are surprisingly good for solo travellers. There are so many dining options and meals are included in the cost of your cruise. In many cases food is available 24/7, so it is not unusual to see people popping down to the buffet alone for something to eat. There are theatre shows on every evening as well as live music in the bars, so there are plenty of options to keep you entertained. The fact that you stop off in many different ports also allows for lots of different experiences – it is virtually impossible to get bored on a cruise!

I have arrived in Germany for the launch of the #cruise ship #NorwegianEncore – she is a beauty! I can’t believe I was the first person to use the race track – the largest race track af sea! I actually got in the first car on the first run out – I just wish I had a photo to prove it 😉 -this one will have to do though! A massive thanks to @sunway_holidays for inviting me – they are Ireland’s top selling cruise specialists for @cruise_norwegian so I guess they got plenty of invites 😉 See all the highlights on my stories. . . . . . . #cruise #cruiselife #cruiseship #norwegiancruise #cruiselaunch #travelbloggerlife #travelblogger #irishtravelblogger #cruiseblogger #racetrack #formula1 #cruisetravel #cruisenorwegian #instacruise

Many cruise lines have dedicated areas for solo travellers but I was really impressed with the studio cabins on Norwegian Encore. They are all located in one designated area on the ship and have a private bar and lounge area. This is an ideal place to meet people and plan activities.  I would quite happily spend a week or two travelling solo on a cruise.

4. Escorted Group Tours: Panoramic Peru: 15 Day Escorted Tour

Many like to travel as part of a group tour for their first solo trip. This is particularly handy if there is a bucket list trip you want to take, but don’t necessarily feel comfortable travelling alone. South America, India and China are ideal destinations for solo group tours, but there are also plenty of group tours in European destinations too.

Peru is best explored on a group tour, in fact you will undoubtedly meet many solo travellers along your journey. The fact that you get to visit Machu Picchu is enough to make me want to book this trip, but that is only one of the many magical sights you will witness on this incredible adventure.

5.  Spa Breaks: Algarve

Sometimes a few days away is all you need to re-charge the batteries. A short flight and a nice hotel is just the ticket! The Algarve is the ideal choice for solo holidays. It is full of long sandy beaches, superb restaurants and plenty of old towns to explore. Whether you are looking for a three-star apartment or a five-star luxury hotel, both are relatively easy to find. Luxury hotels are extremely good value outside school holidays and most have indoor pools, which is handy if travelling during the winter time.
 

 

 
I found a great spa break staying in the 5-star Real Marina Hotel & Spa. Price for flights and a four-night stay with breakfast is just €334, travelling on the 1st of November.

6.  The ultimate retreat – Ubud, Bali.

Yoga, pilates and meditation gave Ubud its global status as one of the world’s best wellness locations, so if you are looking for the ultimate retreat, Ubud is the place to go. You will certainly be wowed by its beauty, you may possibly be taken in by its spirituality, and who knows you might even meet the love of your life, like Julia Roberts did in Eat Pray Love. There are numerous ways to experience Ubud. Many choose to combine it with some beach time in Bali or the Gili Islands, but for the ultimate in relaxation, book a spa hotel or retreat.

7. A touch of luxury in Greece 

There is something about Greece that conjures up images of solo travel. I recall Shirley Valentine going to Mykonos in 1989 (seriously feeling old now), and how I couldn’t wait to visit. The constant images on Instagram of Santorini’s white-washed towns and Zakynthos’ famous Shipwreck Beach are persuading everyone to pack their bags and travel to Greece.

However, I chose the road less travelled last year and stayed in a luxury resort on the island of Crete. Anemos Luxury Grand Resort is located near Chania and Rethymno – two beautiful towns with Venetian ports. They are full of narrow side streets, waterfront cafés and colourful buildings. I explored Chania on my own and loved it. There is a super bus service that goes to both towns every hour, and the bus stop is right outside the hotel. You can also enjoy a 30 minute stroll along the beach into the town of Georgioupolos – home to this delightful church.

8. Independent long haul trips: Thailand

Thailand is a great choice for solo holidays. It is affordable, friendly and offers a great mix of beach, wildlife and culture. You are bound to meet lots of solo travellers on your journey, and you you may end up changing your plans and travelling with them instead.
 

 

 
Hostels are the ideal choice if you are on a budget and want to meet solo travellers. Most hostels are like hotels now, with private rooms en-suite and all mod cons – you don’t have to stay in a dormitory. The main benefit of staying in hostels is they generally organise group events. There are often city tours and pub crawls set up so you don’t have to go out alone. These are a great option if you happen to be travelling solo for a long duration. I suggest booking your first few nights in one of the main beach resorts and then see where the wind takes you…

9. Road Trip: It has to be Route 66 

Maybe you turned 50 and bought yourself a motor bike, or maybe you just like road trips….

If you want to take off on your own, it doesn’t get much better than driving two thousand miles, across eight US states. Driving Route 66 is arguably the most iconic road trip in the world, and one that is sure to be full of soul searching, joy and adrenaline. Drive through Grand Canyon National Park, stand on a corner in Winslow Arizona, and finish off your trip on Santa Monica pier – this is an adventure like no other, and a solo trip you will never forget.

10. Nature Lovers: Iceland

Iceland is one the world’s safest countries, so if you are worried about travelling solo, this is a great place to start. There is so much to do in Iceland especially if you like nature and the elements. You can travel during the summer time and experience the midnight sun, or wait until winter time and chase the Northern Lights. Regardless of when you travel, take a trip around the Golden Circle and book a swim in the Blue Lagoon. Iceland is not cheap though, so make sure you bring plenty of cash with you!

Highlights Of Cuba Guided Tour Including 3 Night Extension in Toronto

cuba

Enjoy the best of both worlds with Travel Department’s new long haul extension holidays. See the highlights of Cuba and enjoy a three night stay in Toronto.

 

Cuba and Toronto – not your typical two centre holiday! But thanks to Travel Department’s new ‘long haul extensions’ you can combine one of their award winning guided tours with an independent extension. This is the latest offering from Irish owned, Travel Department, the market leaders in guided group holidays – and I love it! You can enjoy all the benefits of a group tour with free time to explore independently at the end of your holiday. This particular tour to Cuba includes an extension to Toronto, but if you want to see a different city or stay a bit longer in Cuba, Travel Department can tailor make a trip to suit you.

highlights of Cuba

Cuba has been on my bucket list for years and I can’t wait to go! My husband went on a charity cycling trip to Cuba about 10 years ago and came back raving about it. Cuba is one of those countries that is not easy to travel alone. My husband travelled with a group and when I talk to other people who visited Cuba, they all say the same thing – book a guided tour! Group holidays are a great choice for people who don’t want to travel to far flung destinations alone. No language barriers and no difficulties navigating strange cities – visiting Havana might be a lot easier than you think! It is great to have all the planning and organising done for you and excursions to top attractions included in the price. Trust me I know – sometimes I could spend days organising holidays for people when I was a travel agent!

highlights of Cuba

Yes you can easily book a package deal to an all-inclusive resort in Varadero beach, but that’s not the REAL Cuba. You need to experience the classic beauty of the vintage cars of Havana close up, take a walk in the footsteps of Ernest Hemingway and travel the tobacco route to the western part of the island, taking in the panoramic views of the Viñales Valley. That’s why a guided tour makes all the difference. A guided tour gives you a chance to see the REAL CUBA, discovering hidden secrets like the underground river through the ‘Cueva del Indio’ cave, filled with hanging vines and a prehistoric wall depicting the history of evolution.

highlights of Cuba

Expert local guides will bring you on a real adventure and share their in-depth knowledge of Cuba, giving you insight that you couldn’t possibly learn if you were travelling alone. Enjoy all the highlights Cuba has to offer along the way, such as authentic Cuban food in local restaurants, like the famous Café del Oriente in Old Havana for dinner. Of course Cuba is not only about culture and history – you are in the Caribbean after all! No trip to Cuba would be complete without enjoying some beach time! Varadero is the resort to do just that. Snorkel, scuba dive, take a boat trip or just chill out on its magnificent beaches.

highlights of Cuba

Would you believe all of the above is included in Travel Department’s 14 night Highlights of Cuba tour with Toronto extension! On this particular trip, you will enjoy a three night stay in Toronto at the end of the Highlights of Cuba tour. On arrival in Toronto, you will be met by a guide who will give you a short tour of Toronto’s famous landmarks and leave you with leisure time to sightsee and enjoy all that Toronto has to offer. Visit the Flat Iron Building, the CN Tower or take a day trip to Niagara Falls – the choice is yours!

highlights of Cuba

A price of €3599 includes all flights, hotels, transfers, excursions and guides in Cuba for ten nights as well as a three night stay with breakfast in Toronto. In Cuba many lunches and dinners are included and the five night stay in Varadero is on an all-inclusive basis. This tour is available on selected dates in 2019.
