Hi there, and welcome to my website!
Did you know I was a travel agent for 24 years before starting my own travel website in 2015? This enabled me to travel all over the world, both for work and for pleasure and gain valuable experience along the way.
I travelled as a single person, with my husband (before the kids arrived), and now as a family of four – so it’s safe to say I have most travel scenarios covered. You can rest assured that I would never recommend anywhere unless I have personally visited, or checked reviews from reputable sources.
Travel has changed so much since I started booking holidays for clients many years ago. The ‘typical’ package holiday has evolved as people seek more choice and experiences. I know when to book a ‘package’ holiday and when to book flights and hotels separately, when to go to a travel agent, and when to go it alone, this only comes with experience.
I have a weekly travel slot on Today FM, where I discuss various holiday deals, destination advice and travel tips with Matt Cooper on The Last Word. I also feature regularly on RTE and Virgin Media TV, as well as other radio stations and national newspapers.
The Travel Expert was a finalist in the Irish blog awards, the Eir Spiders digital technology awards and the Accenture digital media awards. I am particularly proud of these achievements in such a relatively short space of time.
My aim is to make The Travel Expert the most interesting, informative and independent travel website in Ireland. I work with reputable brands, hotels and tourism destinations that I value, and I am always open to discuss opportunities.
I value all feedback, so please submit your comments on posts – I read each and every one! So whether you are interested in a week away in Europe, advice on planning your honeymoon, or any other travel related query, l will try to have a post for you. In the meantime why not follow me on social media, you can catch me on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
