The Travel Expert

Sarah Achill (1)

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. 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. 

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. 

My experience has helped me secure regular travel slots on TV3, RTE, Newstalk and Today FM, where I discuss various holiday deals and travel tips for their respective viewers and listeners. I have also been acknowledged as one of Ireland’s top travel bloggers in the Huffington Post. 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. If you want to get in touch to discuss collaborations please email me to discuss your requirements., and view my media pack here.

I hope that you will find all your travel needs on my website, and be able to book via the links I provide, however if you are looking for personal service, and wish to book with a travel agent, I will happily direct you to the most suitable agency to meet your requirements.
