I originally started in travel in 1973 and worked for a number of years in a leading agency in Carlow. Following a break when my children were young I returned to the industry in 1997 and I have been working in Wexford since 2000. I live close to Wexford town and work from home, which gives me the flexibility to meet clients at a time to suit their busy schedules, including evenings and weekends.

I love my job and providing good personal service has always been my aim. I like to take my time with clients to ensure they get the holiday that suits them. I have recently researched and booked holidays for two couples travelling to India. These were very different itineraries and my clients were delighted with my suggestions.

I have travelled widely in Europe taking family holidays in mainland Spain, the Balearic Islands, Portugal, Cyprus, Italy, France, Lapland, Madeira, Austria and Turkey. Some of the cities I have visited in the UK are London, Manchester, Birmingham and Newcastle. I have also taken Mediterranean cruises which gave me the opportunity to visit many European cities. I have been to Thailand and spent 3 nights in Bangkok, and then travelled to Pattaya beach resort.

One of my favourite holidays was a trip to South Africa. I flew to Cape Town where I spent two nights and this gave me time to explore the city and places of interest. I then flew to Port Elizabeth and stayed in Lalibela Private Game Reserve. I undertook three safaris while staying there, and was up close to all the animals which was a wonderful experience. I then travelled back to Cape Town by the Garden route, where I visited many towns and places of interest.

I recently spent a week in Kusadasi in Turkey. The weather was beautiful and I found the people to be very friendly and helpful. While there I visited Ephesus and Pamukkale which are both historic sites.

I hope you will take the opportunity to read my travel diaries while visiting my website.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank my existing clients, and look forward to your continued support. I also look forward to meeting lots of new clients and looking after your travel needs.

Kind regards,

Customer Story 2

I found Sylvia very professional and she gave us great accommodation options to choose from. Booking was easy with her service. Her personal touch of a birthday card mean a lot to my aunt, as the holiday was for her birthday. I would recommend Sylvia with her experience and attention to providing a professional service.

We have been booking our family holidays wiyh Sylvia for almost 10 years. We travel with both young and old members in our family so our destinations must suit everyone, Sylvia always ensures all our requirments are met and her knowledge is excellent . We would highly recommend her, and look forward to booking many holidays in the future.

Olive Reddy, Wexford
Customer Story 6

I'd consider myself fairly good at booking travel, doing it for 7 family members and company directors, but Sylvia was able to get a better price (including her fee) AND the times I wanted. We got a nice folder with the 'tickets', itinerary and luggage tags and all the other personal touches that make you feel appreciated. I know it's not, but she makes it seem easy and certainly makes my life easier!

I recently visited Crete with a group of travel agents. The history of Crete is more than 4000 years old and in fact Crete is credited with being the birthplace of modern civilisation.

Crete is the largest and most southerly of the Greek islands and features many holiday resorts. It is the fifth largest island in the Mediterranean. The island is larger east to west than north to south, and boasts approximately 1040km of beaches with crystal clear waters.

Direct flights operate from Dublin and Cork on a weekly basis from about mid-May to early October, and the flight...
