Gay Iran simply does not exist! For gay travelers wishing to visit, we strongly recommend you follow these simple rules to make your trip SAFE and fun.

This post was co-written with the awesome gay travel blogger Michael Demmons of TheRTWGuys who visited Iran as a solo LGBTQ traveler and shares his first-hand experience in this blog post.

Iran's human rights record is dire. There's no sugar-coating that. When it comes to LGBTQ rights, Iran is as bad as it can get! Most people who follow the news will have heard about the terrible punishments that Iran has imposed for people even suspected of being gay!

“Why?”

“Is that safe?”

These two questions and blank stares were the three most common reactions I received when I told people I was traveling to Iran on holiday.

It was obvious that most of my friends and family did not share the same excitement I felt when an email arrived from my Turkish friend to say he was leading a tour to Iran.

I signed up immediately. Immediately everyone questioned my sanity.
I have wanted to visit Iran for a long time. I majored in art in university and have always been fascinated by the beauty and history of ancient Islamic lands. Turkey is my favorite country, so Iran was the obvious next step for me...

A Dream Fulfilled on a Group Tour in Iran
As for the big concerns my friends and family had around safety, I found Iran perfectly safe to visit. I think a tour is great for an introduction to a country that is very different from one’s own, with customs and a culture that visitors must adhere to. I found it easier and more fun with a group. It is a special place, and it was nice to have people to share that with. The biggest danger I encountered in the country was the traffic, but even then, as you nervously cross the road, you’ll receive a warm smile and a wave as the locals zoom around you.

My group tour in Iran definitely fulfilled a dream for me. The only complaint I have is that it wasn’t long enough. Twelve days offered a great introduction to this incredible country, but it is a place that demands and deserves so much more time. Oh, well. I have a good excuse to go back!

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.
