Cancun and Riviera Maya is a very popular Honeymoon destination from Ireland, so I decided to go on my own holiday to see what this area has to offer. I first stayed in Secrets Maroma, 40 minute transfer from Cancun. This is my top selling hotel for Honeymoons so I was so excited to stay here and it didn’t disappoint. On arrival we were met by a bellboy who brought us to preferred club check in, we were handed a cool towel and glass of champagne. It set the tone from the start. We were shown to our Preferred Club Junior Suite...

As I arrange lots of honeymoons to the Caribbean, I decided to experience a Caribbean Cruise for myself and decided on NCL Epic. We flew to Miami with Virgin Atlantic via London Heathrow. We stayed 1 night pre cruise at the Winter Haven Hotel on Ocean Drive South Beach. This is a beautiful modern art deco style hotel, located at the end of Ocean Drive, so it’s not too noisy and it is just 15 minutes from the Port of Miami. Epic is truly amazing ship with excellent facilities on board. Every day we had arranged to do something on board....

I was really looking forward to my trip to Berlin which is fast becoming a very trendy city break destination. I couldn’t wait to see what Berlin had to offer and I wasn’t disappointed. I stayed in the trendy neighbourhood of Prenzlauer Berg. This is one of Berlin’s most attractive neighbourhoods with trendy fashion boutiques, the oldest Beer Gardens & plenty of restaurants. It is central with trams & underground straight from the airport. Berlin is so easy to get around with underground & trams. We bought a 3 day Berlin Welcome card which includes travel all over Berlin &...

The main reason for this trip to Barcelona was a birthday trip for my boyfriend to Nou Camp Stadium, but I will look forward to seeing when else Barcelona had to offer. We stayed in the El Born area of Barcelona, it was very quaint with small side streets with delicious tapas restaurants & trendy boutiques & bars. It’s also home to the Picasso museum. El Born is the one of the most fashionable areas of the city. We were 5 minute walk to underground station of Jaume 1 which we were able to get around everywhere in Barcelona. You...

I was lucky enough to be invited on a ski educational with Topflight to Meribel & Val Thorens. This was my first ever ski trip, so I was very excited to get on the slopes. Val Thorns is the highest ski resort in France with an altitude of 2300m therefore offers excellent ski conditions. It is perfect for beginners, intermediate, advance ski and snow boarding. Val Thorens is part of the three valleys which links with Meribel, Le Menuires, Mottaret, Courchevel & La Tania covering over 600km of piste. We stayed in the Hotel Le Val Thorens which has excellent facilities...

Lisbon or as the locals call it Lisboa is a stunning city. As you stroll around, you'll find wide Esplanades paved with black and white mosaics, open squares where you can buy freshly roasted chestnuts in paper cones, mazes of cobbled alleys, and steeply winding streets along which quaint trams pass by. We checked into the Sheraton Hotel, which is located close to the Avenue Liberdade. The hotel is 5* with beautiful spa & outdoor swimming pool, great in the summer time. That night we went to sample some Fado music, which is local folk music in Clube de Fado rastaurante....

I was looking for a city break with a difference so I chose Krakow and I wasn’t disappointed. We flew direct and stayed in the Sheraton Krakow, great 5* hotel overlooking the Wisla river and near famous Wawel Castle with stunning views to both, only a short walk to city centre. Krakow was not destroyed in the war like other Polish cities and for this reason it still holds its original beauty and charm. The main square is stunning with beautiful restaurants where you can watch the world go by. It is one of the prettiest and cleanest cities I have...

I had the pleasure of being invited on city break with Turkish Airlines to Istanbul. We flew direct from Dublin with Turkish Airlines to Istanbul. The flight was just over 4 hours. When we got onboard we were given complimentary pillows, blankets & headphones to sit back and relax and enjoy our own personal entertainment system. We were offered a menu to choose from for meals and also had a choice of complimentary wines, beers, liquors and soft drinks. The service was excellent from start to finish. On arrival in Istanbul airport we paid €15 for our visa and went to...

I travelled to Disneyland Paris with friends & their 2 children for Halloween. This is my third trip to Disneyland Paris & I was as excited as the times I visited before. We flew from Dublin to Charles du Gaulle and got the shuttle which took 40 minutes. We checked into our hotel The Newport Bay Club, we had two interconnecting rooms. The hotel has a New England Yacht Club nautical theme. There were characters around the hotel all the time & the hotel also had leisure facilities & a free shuttle bus to the parks. The children couldn’t wait...

My love affair with Asia continues. Destination -India! I visited the state of Goa which still holds true to its chilled-out hippy past, the state of Kerala -a spiritual Mecca and the hectic city of Mumbai, the home of Bollywood. Goa is a beach lovers’ paradise. We spent our time in Ashwem, Baga, Anjuna and Palomen. Each beach has its own personality. Ashwem is visually stunning, very quite & relaxing. Baga beach has a buzzing night life full of bars & clubs. I loved Anjuna beach, laid back with a distinctly hippy vibe. There was also the most amazing night market...

I have used Margaret for all my travel over the last 4 years and find her to be the best that I have ever used and that is by far. I can't recommend her enough and I tell all my friends or colleagues or neighbours or anyone that is travelling to make sure and get in touch with Margaret, they have all come back to me with the same thoughts as what I have said. She does over and above of what you would expect for a Travel Agent . I certainly wont be using anyone else. Regards, from a very happy customer.

I was recommended Margaret by another friend who also booked her honeymoon to Costa Rica with her. We have spent 5 months in finalising the itinerary which took longer than we all thought it would but Margaret has been patient and helpful all of the way. She's gone out of her way to meet with us and even replying to our queries when she was on her holidays! Thanks Margaret for all your help!

Margaret is extremely good. She went to a lot of trouble on our behalf. She worked hard to come up with several options. She was patient and friendly at all times. We posed her with a very difficult ask: self catering apartment with a sea view . Apparently its mostly the hotels and not apartments in European sun destinations which have the sea view. But Margaret delivered . We recommend her.
