Ireland is consistently named as one of the safest places in the world for tourists. The Global Peace Index ranked Ireland number 10 in the world in 2018 (from 163 countries).
We welcome lots of solo travellers on tour. Take one of our small group tours for a hassle-free way to explore Ireland and meet future friends.
Our off the beaten track ethos means that you’ll be in smaller, rural communities while on tour. The pace of life is slower in the Irish countryside. You may notice people greeting you unexpectedly from passing cars; strangers will stop to chat or ask where you are from. This level of friendliness is normal and expected in small Irish villages and rural communities.
Wherever you travel to as a solo traveller, plan ahead, exercise common sense and sound personal safety practices. This is also true in Ireland. Excercising caution will minimize the chances of crime or unwanted attention.
