Hello and welcome to my website. My name is Eleanor Roche and I am a Travel Counsellor born, bred and based in Waterford. I have a passion for all things travel and I am both thrilled and extremely lucky to be able to convert my passion into a career.
Before joining Travel Counsellors, I started my career in retail and then spent several years working as an Accountant however my love for travel was evident in my everyday life. My spare time was always spent researching my next adventure, helping others plan theirs and keeping on top of travel news! As a Travel Counsellor I strive to offer the best possible service when helping my customers plan their dream adventures!
As travel is my passion, I spend my free time visiting as many destinations as possible in Europe and further afield on both land and sea. Over the years I have been fortunate to spend time in South East Asia where highlights included Singapore, Thailand and the Philippines, to embark on a theme park adventure in Orlando and I have also visited over 10 cruise ports all over the Caribbean alone. My favourite type of holiday is cruise as I love the freedom and excitement offered by these floating resorts that transport you to a different type of paradise almost every day. I have travelled on Royal Caribbean and Celebrity cruises but have also researched other lines extensively and I am more than happy to discuss and offer advice on any potential cruise holiday.
With my first-hand experience and expertise, I can also help when planning your dream honeymoon. I would love to personalise your honeymoon and create that once in a lifetime trip that is unique to you. In addition, if you or someone you know is getting married abroad, I can assist with any group travel requirements and make the planning process that bit easier.
My number one priority is you and creating your dream adventure that is tailor made for you! One perk of working with me as your Travel Counsellor is that I am not tied to standard office hours and I am free to meet and discuss outside of office hours at a place that is convenient to you.
I hope to hear from you soon about planning your next adventure.
Please send me your holiday or travel requirements and I will do my best to help you.
With independent access to hundreds of travel suppliers around the world, I can pick out exceptional offers with amazing added value. Take a look through my latest selections – but even if nothing catches your eye, let me know what you’re looking for and I’ll do my best to find it for you!

In April 2018 my partner Paul and I went on a 3-week holiday taking in 2 Caribbean cruises. Our first cruise was onboard Celebrity Reflection for an 11-night cruise aptly named the “Ultimate Caribbean”. It was our first-time cruising with Celebrity cruises and the Reflection was at the time one of their largest ships. Celebrity is a luxurious cruise line and this was evident in the service, the food and the general atmosphere of the ship. Our days were spent lounging on padded sun loungers sipping on cocktails and our evenings were a buzz of culinary delights and entertainment. Our...

In April 2017, my partner Paul and I set off on a 6-week adventure via Dubai through Asia. It was to date the best trip we have ever been on and will be hard to top! We set a budget for the trip and decided to mix it up between luxury accommodation and more budget options throughout whilst also alternating between relaxation, cultural experiences and enjoying some nightlife. We started with a long weekend in Dubai where we visited the Dubai mall, went on a jeep safari in the desert and took part in the "brunch" tradition on a day visit...

We haven't only cruised in the Caribbean, we also went on an 10 night Asian cruise in 2015. We embarked in Singapore and spent a wonderful few days prior to the cruise exploring this city-country. It was the cleanest and safest place we had ever visited and steeped in the different cultures making up its heritage. We visited many attractions such as the Gardens by the Bay where there is a spectacular light show! We didn't stay in the Marina Bay Sands which boasts the longest infinity pool in the world but we did visit for a chocolate and cheese...
