This was our first camping holiday and I must say we really did enjoy it. It allowed us great freedom to do what we wanted on any given day. The staff at Sanguli Camping & Resort were brilliant very friendly and helpful. The mobile home was adequate for a family of four and it was great we had the outdoor space and BBQ also. The campsite itself was kept spotless and well maintained by the resort staff. There were excellent facilities throughout the campsite with 3 pools, an outdoor theatre for nightly shows where you could also eat...

Walt Disney World Resort is the place where stresses disappear, fun reigns and imaginings come true! Picture six incredible Disney Parks, two exciting night time entertainment districts and a state of the art sports complex. More choices then you can imagine for dining, shopping and recreations. It’s easy to see why Walt Disney World is the number one destination on the planet. I recently had the opportunity to travel to Walt Disney World Orlando as a guest of Walt Disney & Aer Lingus as part of group for 5 days and flew direct from Dublin to Orlando direct on an 8...

It could be said that South Africa is fast becoming the adventure capital of the world as there is so much to see and do in this beautiful country that you would need several visits to scratch the surface. I recently had the pleasure of visiting South Africa where I spent a week experiencing its beauty, culture, wildlife and its friendly people. On our first night we arrived in Johannesburg and stayed at the City Lodge Hotel at the airport. The next day we were transferred to Pretoria which is popularly known as Jacaranda due to the Jacaranda trees...

I recently went on a wonderful family holiday to the beautiful resort of Albufeira in the sunny Algarve. We took a two and a half hour direct flight from Cork to Faro Airport. Faro airport is approximately 25-30 minutes’ transfer from Albufeira. We stayed at the five star Grande Real Santa Eulalia Resort and Spa hotel which is about a 15 minute walk from the centre of Albufeira. We had a family suite with sea view and balcony. It was just beautiful to wake up to hear the sound of waves lapping onto the beach - it's that...

With stunning architecture, atmospheric cafes and bars and a rich cultural history, it’s no surprise that Paris is considered one of the most romantic and most visited cities in the world. I recently had the opportunity to spend a weekend there in October with a friend, which I found was not enough time to explore and appreciate what this fantastic city has to offer. We flew from Cork Airport to Charles De Galle. On arrival we took the train to the city centre which took 30 minutes. On arriving in Paris City Centre we made our way to...

I travelled on a Family holiday with my husband and three children. We fly to London very often as we have relatives there so I would know London quite well. We flew from Kerry to Stansted Airport and took the Stansted Express to Liverpool Street Station. While in London we stayed at the Hilton Hotel in Islington. To get a good look at London we decided to take a Tour of London on The London Bus. This was an excellent way to see London as you can hop on and hop off at various tourist...

My husband and I went to Puerto Del Carmen and stayed in the San Francisco Park Apartments which are located in the heart of the town of Puerto Del Carmen, and are only minutes’ walk from the beaches, restaurants pubs cafes and night light. We departed in early December from Cork to Arrecife for 1 week. We had left really cold weather in Ireland and the first thing I remember was when the door of plane opened the lovely hot balmy air that hit my face. It was like being in a different world. We were transferred to our...

Just back from a magical trip to Disneyland Paris.... in beautiful sunshine!!! Can't thank Noreen Lane at Travel Counsellors enough for arranging a stress-free, smooth, relaxing holiday from start to finish. It's all very well trying to save a few bob by doing it all yourself but nothing beats the reassurance of that everything is taken care of. Our little girl had the most wonderful time and Paris is just beautiful.
