I believe that when booking your holiday, the whole experience should be as enjoyable and stress-free as possible, so why not give me a call or pop me through an email. Whatever the challenge, I won’t stop until I have found the perfect holiday for you. I am based in Stepaside, Dublin 18 where I have been living for almost six years although I am originally from Dundrum, Dublin 14.

I have worked in the Travel Industry for nearly 15 years and I am passionate about my chosen profession. I have been working from home as a Travel Counsellors since 2009 and having worked in small agencies and also some of the most prestigious agents in the world, I have a vast knowledge of leisure travel and also business travel.

I recently had a baby girl and I look forward to lots of family holidays going forward. I have travelled extensively to many destinations with some of my favourites being Mexico, Hawaii, Barbados, New York, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Dubai, Mauritius, Thailand & South Africa. My wish list grows every day! Whatever your travel needs - be it a sizzling sun holiday, a wonderful weekend break, a romantic honeymoon or a round the world trip of a life time, I will be delighted to help. I specialise in Honeymoons and longhaul travel and I would be delighted to help you achieve your dream holiday.

Being part of Travel Counsellors means I have the latest technology to hand and I have access to over 400 suppliers including all the major airlines, tour operators, accommodation, cruise lines and car hire companies.

In November 2009 I was delighted to be nominated “Best Newcomer to Ireland” at our annual conference.

Unlike conventional travel agents I work from home which gives me the flexibility to deal with enquiries at a time to suit you, including evenings and weekends.

My family have used Dairine on many occasions over the last number of years to plan and organise our travel abroad and for our holidays. She always helps us by providing a number of options to ensure we get exactly what we want and at the right cost. We have found her to be a very pleasant to deal with, with excellent communication skills and is very knowledgable in all aspects of travel and holiday planning and organisation. We would highly recommend Dairine to anyone seeking a truly professional travel consultant.

With pleasure I can highly recommend Dairine to you. She made my long haul trip so easy by getting the best possible prices, by holding tickets until I was sure, by amending my original plans and by regularly contacting me before my departure. Well done. This was an old fashioned service of style and substance which I had thought was impossible to find nowadays.

Customer Story 11

Dairine, thank you so much for putting together our amazing honeymoon. With so many flights, transfers and hotels to organise we really gave you a headache but you managed it all with such ease. Even when we rang from Mexico to say that I had left my handbag in the back of the car one hour before our next flight! Thanks again for you hard work and hope to be booking again with you soon!

Ruth Igoe, Dublin
Customer Story 12

Dairine's range of skills is vast, we gave a list of requests and Dairine's matched and exceeded them greatly. Once the honeymoon was booked her after sales experience helped greatly with regard to the hotel and flights and we never felt lost or abandoned. We recommended Dairine to our friends and they have now booked their holidays too. Thanks to Dairine, we know our honeymoon will be a dream.

We decided to stop off in Dubai on the way back from our honeymoon in Mauritius and it really was the perfect combination.

After spending 10 nights on the beach in Mauritius it was an easy decision to stay in downtown Dubai but of course we did visit Jumeirah Beach on a couple of occasions.

We booked into The Address Hotel downtown for 5 nights. This hotel is in a fabulous location with very easy access to the largest shopping centre in the world “The Dubai Mall”.

I think I could have spent the whole 5 days...
