I caught the travel bug in my early twenties, travelling extensively throughout Asia and Australia. Since then, my 18 year career in luxury, tailor-made and corporate travel has taken me to many places including New Zealand, South Africa, the Middle East, Mauritius, South America, the States & Canada, Europe and the last few years, the Caribbean islands with two kids in tow!
I have had an exciting and varied career which started in Dawson Street, Dublin working for a well-known Tailor-made specialist. Over time, I worked my way up to managing the training department for the UK and Ireland, followed by a senior management role for a leading luxury operator, overseeing a team of 60+. Having left the spreadsheets and reports behind, I’m back doing what I enjoy. Travel Counsellors has given me the opportunity to take personal service with my clients to the next level.
My areas of expertise are tailor-made, luxury, long haul and corporate travel. This includes luxury resorts, honeymoons, safaris, touring, cruises, fly-drive holidays, rail journeys and even all of it put together!
Tailormade holidays are my passion, the more complex the better. I take pride in offering unique multi-centre holidays not found in a brochure. You don’t have to spend hours researching ideas online, I’m here to take away the hassle, provide inspiration and impartial advice. Unlike booking online, you don’t need to compromise on protection, personal service and expertise to get the most for your money.
With luxury travel being my forte, I will find your perfect holiday, honeymoon or trip of a lifetime. Having long specialised in first and business class travel, I have arranged some of the most luxurious trips and experienced first-hand some of the finest hotels worldwide (La Faena Hotel in Buenos Aires being a personal favourite). ‘Luxury’ doesn't have to mean expensive and with my industry knowledge, I strive to save my clients money.
I also deliver the same level of personal service to my corporate clients and I can team with other Travel Counsellors for larger accounts. Providing a professional bespoke service, ensuring your business travel is in safe hands plus saving you time and money along the way. For my full resume, please see my LinkedIn profile.
‘Sales go up and down, service stays forever’.
Whatever your holiday needs I'm here to help you, so simply give me a call or send me an email with your contact details on and I can get things started for you:-
I absolutely love travel! Take a look through my posts - you might find holiday inspiration where you least expect it...

Sri Lanka is a destination that has always appealed to me but until my recent visit I couldn't tell you why. After a whistle-stop tour, I now realise that it is a destination with so much to offer. While there are some lovely beaches, Sri Lanka also has 8 UNESCO World Heritage sites, a plethora of wildlife, ancient temples, tea plantations, excellent hiking, diving, surfing and cultural experiences at every corner… oh and then there’s the delicious food and incredibly warm hospitality. Need more convincing? Yes, you could visit Sri Lanka and flop to the beach, you could backpack and jump...

I initially introduced a friend to Rob. He was absolutely delighted with the assistance and service he received, so I passed on Rob's details to another friend who was equally delighted. Now, I just tell any friend I meet who likes to travel - 'Contact Rob - he'll look after you!'

Robert is brilliant. Extremely happy customers with the service he provided. I would normally book holidays myself but after using Robert's service for a group booking I will definitely be requesting his service again. I would highly recommend him.
