I have travelled to some amazing destinations throughout Europe and also to South Africa, India, Sri Lanka, Australia, New Zealand, Thailand, Hong Kong, Singapore and Bali, the USA and the Caribbean including Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Mexico, Barbados, Jamaica and most recently The Maldives - this was my ultimate dream trip! I love to tailor make individual holidays to many such countries. I am a certified Aussie Specialist and love working on Australia & New Zealand dream holidays. I also revisited Australia as a family so have experienced the anxiety and stress of going abroad with a little one and can help parents feel at ease when travelling with little ones. I have many families that contact me for help and advice when travelling abroad as I have been travelling with my daughter since she was 6 months old and she is now 11 years.
My regular clients book with me whenever they travel and always recommend me to their family, friends and colleagues.

We just would like to thank you so much for everything, we had an absolutely amazing time in Bali. Everything ran so smoothly, every pick up, collection, ferry, etc, it was all well organised and it took away so much stress. Our hotels were simply out of this world. We even got an upgrade in Hotel Ombak Sunset on Gili T!! We had such an unbelievable time, truly a holiday to remember! Thanks again for everything & we will chat to you again soon.

Mandy went above and beyond when booking our holiday. We left it to the last minute as usual but since we had booked our honeymoon with her last year, she knew exactly what we would be looking for! She even confirmed some of our bookings when she was away for a family celebration on the Saturday morning when we confirmed we wanted to go to Mauritius. We will most definitely be using Mandy again for booking future holidays. She takes 'with us, it's personal' to the last final detail. Delighted with the trip to Mauritius that we just came home from, the best holiday so far in both our opinions.

This is my first time arranging a holiday with Mandy. She was recommended to me by a friend and I must say she's been fantastic. From the outset there's been the utmost care taken to make sure we have the holiday we wanted. From the flight times to the hotel rooms everything has been perfectly planned. Also the personal touch of a thank you card from Mandy for booking with her just add to the experience. I will definitely be booking through Mandy again and also telling friends and family. Thanks again.

I had the great fortune to be recommended Mandy Walsh, of Travel Counsellors, by a friend. Up until that point I had become frustrated with the large travel agencies while trying to book my honeymoon. From the moment I contacted Mandy, she was very approachable and professional. She was very patient with us as we tried to finalise the details of our honeymoon. Any options we were thinking about, Mandy promptly priced them for us and made the whole process very easy and quick. Furthermore, the quotes were always better than what other agencies had quoted us. I would recommend Mandy Walsh to any couple looking for a great personal service while booking their honeymoon!

Having been a customer of Mandy's for a number of years, I have no hesitation in recommending her. She takes care of all travel needs, and her recommendations are always great. Whether it was a week in the Canaries, or a weekend trip to Europe, I have gone knowing the hotel will be affordable, and suit my needs. I have booked a long break in Thailand next year with her, even persuading my friends to go with her rather than a high street agent. I find it's more personable, and I know she will not let me down. She always provides a number of options, so I don't feel pressurised to go to any one place, and there is always something to suit my budget.

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!

There are once in a life time adventures and my trip to the Serengeti was that for sure. We flew with Qatar Airways via Doha to Kilimanjaro who were just top class. A quick stop in Arusha for one night to break up the journey and then the 'real' adventure began. Arusha is a very small rural airport that serves the Serengeti area, and this is where we boarded our light aircraft for an exciting short flight to the Grumeti Airstrip deep in the Serengeti. From there we went straight by jeep to the extremely unique and amazing Bush Rover...

Well it has been almost 10 years since I last visited New York so a trip back was well overdue and what a better way than to revisit the awesome 'city that never sleeps' with five other larger than life and fun loving ladies. So how much can you possibly pack into 72 hours in New York? * Times Square * Broadway * Little Italy - so many charming and authentic Italian eateries with gingham tablecloths galore * Canal Street - not like it used to be back in day * Chinatown - some culinary delights witnessed there were certainly not for the fainthearted! * Brooklyn...

Of all the blogs I have written over the years this one worried me the most, and only because I am afraid it won’t do the Maldives and the stunning island resorts of Kuramathi and Kandolhu justice. Everyone has a dream destination and the Maldives has been mine for a very, very long time and by no means did it disappoint. If anything, it was everything I wished it would be and more. We flew with Turkish Airlines and arrived to Male airport surrounded by the balmy heat. As soon as we collected our luggage, the clear blue seas of...

It has been a few years since my last ski trip so myself and a very excited group of beginners headed to Austria for a week on the slopes.

Myself and 24 of my TC colleagues headed to beautiful Barbados for a fun filled familiarisation trip. We flew via Gatwick to Bridgetown with British Airways.

Rome, Italy’s capital, is a very beautiful, cosmopolitan city with nearly 3,000 years of amazing art, architecture and culture. Ancient ruins such as the Colosseum brought me straight back to my school days when I learned about the power of the former Roman Empire. The Vatican City, headquarters of the Roman Catholic Church, has St. Peter’s Basilica and the Vatican Museums, which house masterpieces such as Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel frescoes so there is no way at all that I think my blog on my first weekend in Rome will do it any justice. It was WOW – a really beautiful...

What a fabulous January weekend I had in Krakow! Although I’ve been working in travel for more than 21 years, I am ashamed to say that I haven’t been on many city breaks.

To say we were excited about this adventure is an understatement but personally as a Mammy I was also a little anxious too with the flights being so long but I need not have been worried at all. We flew British Airways via Heathrow into San Francisco and out of LA and with the excellent transition of terminals now and the on-board entertainment it was ‘plane’ sailing as they say. We stayed with friends in San Francisco and had pre-purchased a San Francisco Freestyle card before we left which included the open top hop on/hop off buses which allows you...

A quick two hour flight to Toulouse with Aer Lingus and then a stunning coach journey to Arinsal in Andorra that took just over 3.5 hours and we arrived safely to the lovely 4* St Gothard Hotel in Arinsal. Andorra is situated between France and Spain, a small independent state in the heart of the Pyrenees. Located about a mile downhill from the resort but with a...

To be honest it has changed a little but then I think thats down to the economic downturn overall and perhaps the Greek situation too so the towns/resorts are quieter than they used...

There is a classic Mediterranean feel to this hotel with stunning ocean views. All rooms...

We stayed in the Roosevelt Hotel in Midtown Manhattan, which is an excellent location for Times Square and Broadway.

Well it was a last minute and unplanned trip but totally enjoyable and a destination I would recommend. After a lovely short flight of 2.5 hours we arrived in Faro Airport and a short transfer of 40 minutes had us in our apartment. The Alfagar Apartments are 2kms from Montechoro and 5kms for the Old Town of Albufeira. It took about 15 minutes to walk to the Strip in Montechoro and cost €3.50 in a taxi back. A taxi to the Old Town cost about €6 each way. The Old Town is really charming, narrow cobblestone streets lined with stalls...

I was so excited when the opportunity arose to travel to South Africa, as I have heard nothing but great comments from clients and colleagues. So on the 4th of December this very excited travel agent headed off via Heathrow to Capetown. The process from Terminal 1 to 5 is an easy transition by the Heathrow Express and it wasn’t long before we were boarding our 11 hour flight. On arrival in Capetown, we were met by glorious sunshine and it was only 6.15am. Firstly was a brief visit to Table Mountain, which stands majestically over Capetown and its surrounds....

We decided this year we would like to try something different from the standard package holiday so we booked direct flights to Nice on the Cote D’Azur. The Côte d’Azur or French Riveria as perhaps it is better known has a most diverse coastline with stunning cliffs and the rolling countryside of Province. Add to this the chic resorts of Fréjus, St. Raphael and St. Tropez and you will really feel in a different world. Cannes, famous for its film festival and Monaco are all nearby.

I know there are many brides to be that dream of a white wedding in the Caribbean with the sun setting in the background and the sand between their toes. It certainly avoids the worry of whether the rain will hold off in Ireland, regardless of whether you chose a summer or winter wedding. I cannot recommend getting married abroad enough.

Thailand really blew me away from the dramatic scenery to the beautiful welcoming Thai people. I loved every second of it. We began our trip in Bangkok, which is chaotic but so much fun. Its always buzzing. We then headed to Kanchanaburi and visited the Jeath War Museum and saw the ‘Bridge over the River Kwai’ before heading to Erawan National Park to swim in the waterfalls and whilst here even got chased by monkeys. We also spent a couple of hours at the ‘Tiger Temple’ and have some fantastic photos holding baby cubs and sitting with the tigers which...
