The food is actually better than you'd get in most high street restaurants, and prison rape doesn't happen in ireland.

If you're travelling by yourself, I'd give you the following advice.
  • Go somewhere English-speaking, where they speak very good English (Scandinavia, The Netherlands, you might just say Germany) or where you speak the local language. You'd be surprised how quickly not having a proper conversation will affect you
  • Don't go somewhere that is just known as a destination for bars, clubs or restaurants. You're not going to want to do thiese things alone
  • Go somewhere there are lots of things to do and see. You'll fit a lot more in travelling alone.
  • Stay in hostels, you're more likely to meet people, including fellow solo travellers

Given the current currency situation, a lot of UK destinations are good value at the moment. Otherwise, someone mentioned Berlin; it would tick all the boxes. If it's in your price range and you have the time, New York would be a decent option.

Tullamore

Just check into the Tullamore Court and don't leave for 3 days. Good food, good drink, and the leisure centre does cheap massages. Always the chance they'll have Bagatelle or Christy Moore on in the hotel too.

There's a handy petrol station across the road if you need to pop out for Lucozade or Cadburys Mint Crisp.

It's hard to argue against this.
