Hi there, and welcome to my website!

I’m Sarah Slattery, a former travel agent who decided to put my 24 years of travel experience to good use, and started my own travel company in 2015. I have travelled to over 50 countries both for work and for pleasure and gained 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 only recommend destinations and hotels that I know personally or have fact checked reviews from reputable sources. 

book your flights and hotels with the travel expert

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. 

In the Media

My travel experience has led to features in many leading publications, radio and TV shows. I have a weekly radio 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 on Travel Saturday each week on Ireland’s Classic Hits Radio, as well as being a contributor to RTE and Virgin Media TV, as well as other radio stations and national newspapers.
