Hello my name is Deborah and I’m your Louth based Travel Counsellor. Travel has always been a passion of mine and I look forward to making your holiday dreams come true.
My interest in travel began when I worked and lived in the UK for 4 years and I used this time to travel extensively in Europe. Italy, Spain, Portugal, Greece, Austria, Holland, Germany, France; I just could not get enough! I was continually looking for a new place to explore!
After completing my studies in Tourism, I started working in the Industry both in South Africa (where I lived and grew up) as well as in the UK where I worked in the Corporate Sector of the Travel Industry.
Last year my family and I moved from South Africa to Ireland and I decided to become a Travel Counsellor. I can offer you specialist expertise knowledge when planning your holiday. Having lived in South Africa, I can create magical experiences for my customers. Whether you’re looking for a Safari adventure or to relax on warm Indian Ocean Beaches or a road trip on Garden Route.... I am there for you with first-hand advise.
I have also been extremely privileged to get a real taste for Ski holidays in Austria, beach holidays in the Greek Islands as well as having visited so many magical spots that I will never forget like “Cinque Terre” (meaning 5 cliffs) in Italy. With my travel experience I can help you plan your next holiday, all personally tailored for your wants and needs.
As a Travel Counsellor, I have access to thousands of Suppliers which means I can offer you an excellent range of Suppliers at competitive prices. I make myself available to my clients 24/7, offering a personalised and professional service from the moment of enquiry until you return from your trip, I will make myself available to you every step of the way.
Whatever your holiday needs I'm here to help you, so simply give me a call or send me an email with your contact details on and I can get things started for you:-

The excitement had been building in our home for weeks! The temperature had turned cool in Ireland and we had had the wettest October in years with nonstop rain. Fortunately, we had a week in sunny Spain booked for the October mid-term school holidays. Many had advised that the weather might be unpredictable at this time, but we took our chances and off we set with a positive mindset! We were warmly greeted by Aer Lingus staff at Dublin airport- how I do love the warmth of the Irish, being a South African myself this still thrills me. After a couple...

My husband and I had been dying to get back to the “Bush” since our Honeymoon to Victoria Falls. This trip certainly wet our taste buds but 3 days at Victoria Falls just did not seem enough!

However, at last we had now found ourselves back in a position to visit the “Bush” again. We booked our self-catering chalet in the Kruger National Park and...

Eight months after my family and I moved to the beautiful Emerald Isle we decided to plan a quick trip back to South Africa to see family and tie up a few loose ends.

We decided to spend our first week in Cape Town, and then head to the glorious Kwazulu Natal Coast in order to enjoy the warmer climate of the Indian Ocean. While in Cape Town, we...

I remember my first ski holiday like it was yesterday! My then fiancé and I decided to go to Austria, and I was feeling slightly nervous as I am the furthest thing from a "dare devil", while Andrew likes to push everything he does to the absolute limit. We flew into Vienna and caught the train to a small town called Semmering. The train trip was spectacular! We both could not believe the beauty of our surroundings as we made our way to Semmering through the snowy capped mountains. On arrival, we immediately realized that we were not full prepared for the...
