I lost a little wait that week, I was not comfortable eating there.
Just about any place in Ireland is a great place to travel solo. There is the Waterford factory, the Ring of Kerry, the zoo in County Cork where animal are not locked in cages (giraffes and zebras roam a plain-like area that is large and let's them be free), County Kilkenney also has many old ruins and friendly people, the Cliffs of Mohre offers a view you can seldom find anywhere else, and Galway Bay has a view like no other (stay in a B&B up on the hilltop for the best views). I also like the Giants Causeway up at the tip of Northern Ireland. I would stay out of Belfast for now until the protestors stop whining about the British flag not being flown enough on a capitol building. Last but not least, you have to visit Blarney Castle to kiss the blarney stone and don't forget to pick up a certificate outside the castle that says you kissed the blarney stone. If you are into hand knit Irish wool sweaters, the place to go is O'Maille's in downtown Galway (hopefully it is still there).
There are also a lot of US Cities that are fun to visit and a lot of hotels provide rides to various museums or a car rental gives you the freedom to roam. I love New Orleans and San Antonio - plenty to do and see. And, of course, the mule ride down the Grand Canyon for the daredevils among us. All of the US National Parks have a lot to see if you are into outdoor adventure. I also like the Caribbean - staying at the Mariott in St. Thomas at the top of a high hill provides views of the surrounding waters and the facilities on the premises are bar none.
Last but not least are the dolphin swims in various locations in the Caribbean.
The solo world is a happy world. A person can RV and camp solo and go to all sorts of concerts and events alone because one is never really alone. There are always friendly people out there and experiences become adventures. With the Internet at hand, there is always somebody to communicate with if one wants to, and then, the scent of sea air at sunset cannot be improved by sharing , it is, like many things, magnificent on its own.
