Where is the best place in Ireland to live when you're single?

Things to do, quality of life, friendliness, affordability et al.

Thanks in advance.

A bit like the money makeover threads, an impossible question to answer in the absence of more information. The obvious answer for a singleton would be Dublin (for the connectivity and range of options, worst on the affordability scale) but it would depend on means, job, are you happy being single, what do you want in life/to have by way of lifestyle etc.

As a Dubliner who likes to be beside the seaside I'd go for Dun Laoghaire, Blackrock, Clontarf, Malahide and similar places along the DART line, but not Howth cos it gets mobbed in summer. All those places are close enough to the city centre and also have their own cluster of pubs, restaurants etc

But places like Rathmines-Rathgar-Portobello would be closer to the centre of the action without being Temple Bar.

I agree re Dublin but it's not affordable.

Self-employed, would be open to meeting someone, outdoor / community / volunteering lifestyle

Galway City for arts? Wexford for opera lovers? Sligo for surfers? Kilkenny, Carrick on Shannon or Carlingford for bumping into stag or hen parties!

Have a look at house prices in a few areas other than Dublin - that might well swing things!
Towns like Midleton or Carrigtuohill in Cork for example would all be within a few minutes train commute to Cork, and houses would cost far less than similar in Dublin.
Coastlines of East & West Cork on your doorstep, Ferry to France from down the road in Ringaskiddy and Cork Airport will get you anywhere else via Amsterdam, Aer Lingus goes every day.

The OP want's to stay in Ireland, why are you talking about the People's Republic? ;)
