This year, we went on our family holiday to Lake Garda and Verona. We flew from Cork to Milan Bergamo and got a private transfer to Bella Italia Campsite in Peschiera Del Garda. This town is set on the south of lake Garda just over an hour transfer from the airport. Verona airport would be a closer option but flights at the time were not available from Cork. We stayed with Eurocamp in a 3 bedroom azure mobile, which sleeps up to 6 people. The mobile was equipped and had a separate toilet and shower...

I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to be invited onboard the launch of Celebrity Beyond ship in April. Along with many of my colleagues we flew to Heathrow and transferred by bus to Southampton port. An antigen test was required at that time within 48 hours before boarding and I had to upload my proof of vaccination to the celebrity app in order to obtain by sail pass. Boarding the ship is not too unlike checking in for a flight. The check in staff checked all our documents on arrival and we were cleared to board. To...

What a lovely week I had when myself and my 2 kids, 1 year and 4 years together with my mother headed off to Lanzarote for a week. We stayed in the Fariones Apartmentos between the Old & the New Town. It was an ideal location as it was close to restaurants, the beach and the Biosphere shopping centre. Our accommodation was spacious, very clean and included a fabulous breakfast every day in the little restaurant - everything from delicious fruit, meats, cheeses, so many types of bread, juices and even a warm selection for those that want...

One of my favourite destinations has to be Croatia, where I’ve been lucky enough to visit twice. The first time as a couple and then with our one-year old son. When we travelled the first time, we stayed in a little town called Cavtat which has a beautiful seafront promenade with lovely restaurants and bars. It is the ideal place to relax and watch the boats arriving in the harbour. We stayed in the 5 star Hotel Croatia which was amazing. We also had the opportunity to visit Montenegro while on our first trip. While it isn’t as developed as many...

I travelled to Australia on two occasions as my brother used to live there. The first time was for 6 weeks with my husband and we flew via Singapore. To break up the journey we spent 2 days in Singapore which is a beautiful city-country. We did the hop on hop off sightseeing bus tour as we wanted to see as much as possible during our short stay. We got to stop at the Singapore Flyer, Chinatown, Little India and Garden of Bays to name a few. After a short stay in Singapore, we continued our trip to Sydney...

My husband and I decided to get married abroad in Italy and after we honeymooned Canada. We flew to Vancouver from Dublin for 3 nights stayed in the city centre we could be close to all the action and explore the city. I loved Vancouver as it was very easy to get around. While a city there was a very chilled and relaxed atmosphere here. It had everything from sightseeing, shopping and a great night life. We did the hop on, hop off bus which was ideal to get a feel for the city. We also...

Nicola was excellent to deal with. She was very thorough and gave us plenty of options to choose from. We changed the dates a few times and Nicola was extremely helpful always providing us with the updated price within hours. I initially spoke to Nicola on the phone and she gave me a very clear run down of the service she provides. Nicola had the holiday booked in the space of a few days and I had regular contact with Nicola during the process. I had got Nicolas number off of a relative of mine who spoke highly of Nicola. I would highly recommend Nicola as her professionalism was incredible. Thank you again for making the booking process of our holiday so smooth.

Nicola was recommended to me by a family member who spoke very highly of her. Nicola was extremely helpful and kind when I contacted her about flights to Australia. She provided me with as much information as she could about entry requirements into the country and had flight options for us within such a short space of time. I would highly recommend Nicola if you are considering booking through Travel Counsellors.
