What is Solo Travelling?
Solo travel is simply travelling alone rather than with a companion. Solo travel allows you to explore a destination on your own terms. You decide how and where you want to spend time on your trip.
Solo travel places you outside your comfort zone and encourages you to fully immerse yourself in the culture of your destination, meet new people and be receptive to new experiences.
Dublin is the capital city of Ireland and extremely popular amongst solo travellers because of its rich culture, fascinating history and of course the craic! Whether you are a seasoned solo traveller or planning your first trip, here’s why Dublin is an ideal location for your next solo adventure.
