I love my job; so its not surprising that I am over 20 years in travel. I realised that it was becoming more difficult to offer my clients the attention to detail they deserved whilst working in a traditional agency, so I was delighted to become a Personal Travel Counsellor and have had over 6 very successful years already!

Home-working gives me the flexibility to work hours that suit my clients including weekends and evenings. This way I offer a service that most would consider beyond the call of duty - but I value my clients and believe they are worth it.

I offer a professional personalised service for all types of holidays and travel. In 2008, I was awarded 'Gold' status - an award given in recognition of my high level of sales and service. I pride myself in offering a level of commitment and expertise that is unrivalled. Also in 2008, I was delighted to achieve 'Best Newcomer Ireland' and most recently 'Best Travel Diary'. For the last 34 years I was in the Top 20 Travel Counsellors Worldwide for my Customer Satisfaction levels and in the Top 5 in Ireland.

I have travelled extensively throughout Europe Asia, the Caribbean and the USA. I lived in Australia for 15 months visiting New Zealand and Bali. I revisited Australia with my baby so have experienced the anxiety and stress of going abroad with a little one – now I can help parents feel at ease if travelling in the same situation. I was lucky enough to experience South Africa including Cape Town, the Garden Route & Safari. A truly amazing adventure. My most recent trips were to Mexico & India, both very different but which I loved so much.

I am an Aussie specialist, long haul holidays are my forte and I have organised countless honeymoons and weddings abroad. I had my own wedding in the Caribbean so I have first hand knowledge of the pitfalls and the advantages of the fairytale day abroad!

I love skiing and have skied throughout Europe & even in Australia – yes they have snow!!!

My regular clients’ book with me whenever they travel and always recommend me to their family, friends and colleagues. They will tell you that I am enthusiastic and passionate about travel, so whether you desire beach and blue skies, a bustling city break, or perhaps you crave adventure...?

Regardless of your choice – please call or e-mail me.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Customer Story 1

Mandy is of great help when booking holidays. She is very versed on different peoples needs and has great knowledge of different locations. Mandy arranged a few holidays for me in an efficient and friendly manner. I have always been happy with the result and got exactly as I asked for, she goes that extra mile. I would highly recommend her to organise a holiday.

Mandy booked us a 10 night stay in USA taking in New York, Boston and Washington. It was the best service we ever got. The places she booked were much better that what we expected. All things ran like clock work between flights, hotels (which were fab) trains and pick ups. We would highly recommend Mandy; she is polite, helpful and gives you more than you ask. Thanks Mandy we will be in touch soon

Customer Story 3

We had the most amazing honeymoon organized by Mandy. She arranged flights for us that 2 other travel companies had told us were not possible (we fit in a lot of destinations) and they didn't cost the earth. Even when our travel plans changed at the last minute one phone call to Mandy sorted everything out! The accommodation she arranged was second to none, I couldn't fault any one of the hotels / apartments that she had booked for us. We have not stopped recommending Mandy and the amazing service she provides since we got back!

Mandy is always a great help. We wanted to organise a trip to Portugal to the World Rally Championship; 3 of us were travelling from Dublin and one from the UK. Mandy organised the apartment for the weekend, and also flights. Everything was, as always, perfect. Thank you Mandy for yet another seamless trip!

Customer Story 5

I booked for 26 of my family to go to Zakynthos through Mandy in Travel Counsellors. Mandy was able to satisfy all our different requests. Then Thomas Cook pulled out of Ireland and scuppered our plans by cancelling our flights. This meant that 60,000 other holiday makers who had booked with Thomas Cook were also on the market looking for holidays. That is when Mandy really went to work. She was fantastic. Within hours of the Cooks news breaking she was on the case. Rebooking and changing flights to ensure that we could all get to the town we wanted to stay in and getting accommodation sorted again for everyone. We would all have no hesitation in recommending Mandy. She is a complete professional, always at the end of the phone, always has a smile and is a pleasure to deal with. Many thanks.

I would like to thank Mandy for her help and assistance when booking our holidays over the past few years. We booked a fab honeymoon with her in 2010 and have been going back to her since. We had to cancel a holiday a couple of years ago and Mandy was so helpful and professional. I couldn't recommend her enough. Anthony & Niamh Farrell

Myself and 9 friends decided to plan a ski trip but trouble was, we didn't know where to start! Some of us were beginners and some more experienced and we hadn't a clue where to go that would suit us all. I got in touch with Mandy and from then on everything just went perfect! Mandy had a group booking to Andorra that she joined us in on. From the minute the holiday started to landing back in Dublin a week later was just a holiday full of fun! From the beautiful 4 star St.Gothard Hotel to the most amazing views from the slopes in Arinsal and to the craic of the Apres Ski the holiday had everything for everyone! It suited all our skiers and everyone had a ball. There was even themed nights and different activities such as Sledging on the slopes to a bar crawl organised for us. We cant thank Mandy enough for a wonderful, fun and well organised holiday! We will definitely be taking part in next years ski trip! Thanks again, from all the gang! :)

Mandy, as always was fast, focused and professional.

If you're looking to go somewhere in the world for a special holiday but you're not sure where to go or to how to even start, then talk to Mandy. We went to Mandy with ideas for a honeymoon and she made it a simple choice for us. We had lots of queries and wanted to make lots of changes and Mandy was always there, day and night, to help us. She has the patience of a saint! Highly recommended!

Mandy planned and organised my weddingmoon in Cancun Sept 2009 and I could not praise her knowledge, kindness and patience enough. Over the 2 years of planning I changed location, dates and numbers many times and Mandy was always her cheerful wonderful self. I was a Bridzilla & Mandy was always there to calm me down and sort EVERYTHING. She is nothing short of AMAZING and I have just booked my family holiday with her in 2013!

As President of The Irish kennel Club I have to travel a lot worldwide. The destinations can be very diverse with the arrangements very specific. I found Mandy Walsh very quick to respond initially and very good to follow up.The results are always accurate and budget concious and I get a good feeling of control once I give her a task.

I have been dealing with Mandy for the last 6 years since she first started with Travel Counsellors and I find the service and attention to detail excellent. She has always time to search for the holiday package that suits me. The holiday packages that we have been on in the past have always been excellent. I have no hesitation in recommending Mandy to anybody for an excellent holiday.

Well after a very early and easy flight to Palma Airport in Majorca, we boarded our express shuttle to Alcudia which only took 45 minutes and were checked in and all to our lovely apartment by midday. Our apartments for the week were the Sol Alcudia Centre and honestly I couldn't fault them. Our one bedroom apartment was huge and spotless and we had a lovely view of another new modern complex and its pool area opposite.

The apartments were perfectly located, only a short walk from the most amazing beach I have come across in a long time...
