I love Turkish food. It’s one of my favorite cuisines in the world and a big reason why Istanbul is one of our favorite cities to visit. It’s a sprawling metropolis with lots to do and many delicious things to eat...

Make no mistake about it – Turkish meat dishes like kebabs, kofte, and kokorec are delicious. If you have no dietary restrictions, then be sure to check out our guide to some of the best restaurants in Istanbul.

Lying on the banks of the Bosphorus, Istanbul is a city that is thousands of years old, and that originally was known as Byzantium, and later, Constantinople, before adopting the name Istanbul in the early 20th century.

In Istanbul, you will find that architecture, culture, and trade routes converge from all over the world to make a wonderful melting pot that is really exhilarating. So, I’ve compiled my top things to do in Istanbul based on my own itinerary.

I’ve gotten questions like “is Istanbul safe?” and I think that is very important to be cautious and savvy while you explore the city, but it can be an amazing destination for solo travel.

I firmly believe that solo travel for women is one of the best ways to learn about yourself and the world. Taking a solo trip is a fantastic way to grow.

Here’s my solo female traveler’s guide to Istanbul to help you have a safe and memorable experience!

During my 21 years of travel, I’ve visited Istanbul about 20 times. It’s a convenient place to stop for a few days in between other destinations and over the years, I’ve built up a long list of my favorite spots around the city that I love to return to over and over again. Right now I’m finishing up my latest visit to Istanbul and it was just as rewarding as every visit before it!

Planning a trip to Ireland can be a lengthy task. One that leaves many scratching their head or pulling their hair out. But, lucky for you, I’ve come to your rescue. Hi, I’m Laura, your local guide. It’s my goal to make your trip to Ireland as carefree as possible. I love seeing visitors fall in love with my home country. Ireland is a magical place, and I understand just how much the trip means to you. It’s a once in a lifetime experience and I can’t wait to help you plan it. Now, let’s go on a road trip, an Ireland 7 day itinerary exploring the countries most iconic cliffs, beautiful national parks and we will even take a journey out to one of Ireland’s most scenic islands.

But first, we need to address the big question.

IS 7 DAYS IN IRELAND ENOUGH TIME?

To put it simply, no. 7 days is not nearly enough to see all there is to do in Ireland. In fact, a whole month would only allow you to scratch the service of what the country has to offer. However, with that being said, oftentimes one week in Ireland is all most tourists have. And, while it’s not a huge amount of time, it is enough to see some of the countries major highlights.

Are you planning a visit to Ireland for the first time?

If so, you’ll need some type of itinerary to guide you.

And while Ireland is small, there’s a lot of ground to cover.

In fact, you won’t see everything in 10 days, but with this guide you will see some of the country’s most popular attractions — and a few quirky hidden gems thrown in for good measure.

When designing an itinerary for a first time visit to Ireland, it’s always advisable to draw a line across the country from say Dublin to Galway and then decide which half of the country you want to explore.

With this 10 days in Ireland itinerary, you’ll get to visit some of the popular attractions with tourists in addition to other, lesser-known ones.

This itinerary is geared toward the southern half of Ireland and includes attractions like Galway, the Cliffs of Moher, Doolin, the Ring of Kerry, the Dingle Peninsula, Waterford City, and more.
