Greetings everyone. I hope for this to not be lengthy, but bear with me.
I recently had a falling out with my soon-to-be fiancée, and unfortunately, we just can't work things out at the moment. In a way to get past all of the drama and such, I decided to get a well deserved holiday in. I have a friend who works as a travel agent, and I literally dropped the money that I was saving for the ring on his lap, and told him to book me an amazing trip. A week in Killarney is what he came up with, and so be it, I am going.
Unfortunately, I know nothing of the region whatsoever. I am in a very odd situation as I will be going completely by myself.
Here are a few stats about me:
I'm 29, a male, and during the week I will be there (end of April,) I will be celebrating my 30th birthday. I am going completely solo with no strings attached. I've traveled a lot and I've never been a big fan of touristy family type of vacations. I've been booked into the 'Killarney Royal' hotel (and pre-paid so there is no changing it.) Beyond that, I have NO plans whatsoever.
Ideally, I would like to meet some locals and just have a great week of fun and relaxation, but I fear that I'll end up sitting at a pub, lost in my woes. It all sounds pathetic, I understand, and trust me when I say that I'm not typically this way, but it is a unique situation that hasn't been the easiest to deal with.
So if anyone has any leads into something great, or any locals that just want to chill out and have a great time, please let me know. I appreciate any help on this.
