Found him at 48.6,40.3 at noon, game time, go he's not a night spawn and there were lots of other mobs around, so you don't need to clear the area...unless it's just something to do while you wait for him to show up.

I finally found her at 48.8, 41 at 9 a.m. (game time), so she does indeed show in the morning too. I don't know if you need to kill mobs in the area to make her pop; I did kill a bunch anyway to get some random XP while looking for her.
Solo'd this as a level 42 Hero and didn't have any problem killing her and then her escort (there was only one escort when I did it). Received the Scale Greaves of Might.

I have searched for days IRL for Aoife and I can't find her! I have looked at all of these spots at all times mentioned and even hung out there for game day/nights. Anyone have a different spot, or know what I should do?

Please be advised that Aiofe doesn't spawn unless you kill a bunch of the mobs in that area. Received this information from a CSR after waiting a long time and nothing spawned.

It's important to note that there might be a different way to start this quest. I initially went directly to Tiarnan but no right clicking would activate this quest.

So, I went and visited Bairfhionn first and she gave me the West Wind quest while advising me to seek out Eavan and of course, Tiarnan.

Aoife spawns on or near the hill that is directly east of Tir Urphost. If you follow the path past the guard tower around to the other side of the hill, go through all the trees (still on the path) till you come to a glowing rock. Right across the path is what appears to be a dead bind-stone (black rock in a fairy ring). Turn to the SSW, and the hill has no trees.

Aoife and her guards will walk ALMOST all the way down to the path by this glowing rock if you wait long enough (as long as nobody is up the hill killing her) but I'd suggest going up the hill at this point. They normally traverse the ridge up top.

Hope this helps

When you go to kill Aoife, you might want to bring a ltttle help because she had 2 escorts when I killed her, she died & I got the items, but her escorts killed me. Oh and by the way she looks like a winged devil and was flying above the 2 escorts. A friendly Warden happened by & rezzed me :)))). Then I went on and finished the quest. It took less than 2 hours total to do all the steps.

To start the quest talk to Barithionn. You can find her in the bar, on the right just before you in the caster training compond in TnN.

I found Aoife, she had 2 escorts. I killed Aoife and one of the escorts, the 2nd finished me off. I did not recieve any items and the quest did not advance. Looks like I will need to lvl or bring a friend to continue. :)

She is found down the road from Tir Garda (back the way you came by horse) up on a ridge just behind the lightstone. If she spawns alone she is an easy kill : yellow to lvl 36. Spawns at night occasionally.
Ring of Questions

Perhaps all the casters get the Ring of questions as a reward. I got it as an Enchanter also. Now we just need to know if Mentalists also get it.

Doran Actully Spawns south of TU under a tree just before hitting the plains.

Correcting above info

Actually the information on this quest as to minimum level is incorrect. You can get this quest at level 38. In addition the reward for each class is different. For example rangers get an AF 74 Reinforced Vest that has among a few other stats +2 to stealth. Hauberk of Lies is the name I believe.
