  • Is it very dangerous to travel solo to Ireland as a woman?

    Best answer: You'll be fine. Lots of women travel through Ireland alone and have a great time.

  • When’s the second best time of the year to visit Ireland?

    Best answer: Late Spring, like May, is lovely - if the weather is nice. Likewise the Autumn, again, if the weather cooperates.

    The issue is really the weather. The only thing predictable about it is that it's completely unpredictable.

  • How does a tourist usually get around Scotland and Ireland?

    Best answer: You could join one of the various tour groups that go around either country, but the downside of this is you'd only get the highlights. You could take public transport to the cities and larger towns and stop in smaller places along the way, but you would be limited to where the bus/train goes, and when. Taxis... show more
    Best answer: You could join one of the various tour groups that go around either country, but the downside of this is you'd only get the highlights.

    You could take public transport to the cities and larger towns and stop in smaller places along the way, but you would be limited to where the bus/train goes, and when. Taxis are also possible, but more expensive.

    You could hire a car and drive from place to place, but there are certain considerations: first of all, car hire companies will not take on clients younger than a particular age (statistically younger drivers are a greater risk), you would need an international driver's licence, you would need to be comfortable driving a stick-shift car (automatics are few and far between and expensive), you would need to be able to handle driving on the left-hand side of the road with a right-hand drive car. You'd also need lots of money because fuel is not cheap - unless you can rent an electric or a hybrid model - and you would have to pay for parking in most urban locations. The upside of renting a car, however, is that you will be able to get to places that most tourists don't see, as long as you are prepared to leave the larger roads.

    You could cycle from place to place, but this could be a bit dangerous as there are not many dedicated cycle lanes throughout the country. You'd also need to be in pretty good physical condition for it.

    If you had lots of time, you could walk from place to place, but you'd be travelling light. But you would see places that most people wouldn't see.

    And yeah, Ireland is a separate republic. Not part of the UK at all.

  • When is the best time to visit Ireland?

    Best answer: Personally I think May/June is the nicest time - long evenings, short nights. There's no particularly time when the weather is best, it can be anything at any time of the year.

  • Why do the Irish still whinge and hate the English but they all still want to move here? Why be so hypocritical?

    Best answer: Well, the population of the Republic of Ireland is just over 4 million, and to my knowledge most of them are still in Ireland, and likely to stay here, so what are YOU on about?

    Oh WAIT. You're a troll. On here trying to stir up upset.

    And in the light of that, your question is funny.

  • Any tips on my upcoming trip to Ireland?

    Best answer: LOL. Always funny when people ask what the weather will be like - honestly hon, you could get anything. Really. I remember hailstones in June, and one December was so warm you could go outside with just a light jacket. Of course, I remember another December when it stayed minus 5 for the best part of a month, too... show more
    Best answer: LOL. Always funny when people ask what the weather will be like - honestly hon, you could get anything. Really. I remember hailstones in June, and one December was so warm you could go outside with just a light jacket. Of course, I remember another December when it stayed minus 5 for the best part of a month, too .... anything goes.

    So I would suggest bringing light layers that you can pull on and remove as you see fit. Also, you'll need a waterproof jacket and shoes, and if you're from a warm, dry climate, I strongly recommend bringing one or two light scarves for around the neck.

    As for where to go and what to do, that's really up to you and what you are interested in. Try the travel section in your local library for books on Ireland (make sure they are recent publications) and I'd suggest investing in a recently published travel guide book for Ireland and reading that and bringing it with you when you come here. Once you've accumulated some information, you can always come back here to ask about specific things.
