I love last minute trips. The spontaneous decision on a Monday to grab a few days away and head off on Wednesday – absolute bliss That is exactly what I did recently after mid-term when flight prices are at their lowest. I stayed 5 nights in Puerto Mogan in Gran Canaria which has to be one of the most relaxing places in the Canaries. There is a great selection of hotels and apartments available and it’s a very relaxing area. No rowdiness or thumping music - just meandering little bougainvillea filled streets with lovely shops to browse around,...

When a friend suggested getting away for Christmas, my answer was a very quick YES, YES, YES! For the first time ever, my children were happy to not be home for Christmas and had alternative plans, so I could happily avoid all the shopping (and over spending), the food preparation and cooking and the cleaning up afterwards! We decided on a Caribbean Cruise so we could enjoy some sunshine, and our choice of cruise line was Princess Cruises and the gorgeous Crown Princess. We boarded in Fort Lauderdale for a 10 night cruise of the Caribbean and visited several beautiful...

From talking to friends and clients, I know that Japan is on a lot of people's bucket lists. It was certainly on mine for as long as I can remember and my wish to go there came true last October. It was without doubt one of my best holidays ever and I would have absolutely no hesitation in going back again if I got the opportunity. I split my 10 night trip into 3 separate locations - Tokyo, Hakone and Kyoto and I feel I got the mix exactly right. Tokyo is the biggest city in the world but surprisingly has...

After this, my second full cruise, I am totally convinced - cruising is my favourite type of holiday! So much to see and do, places to visit, people to meet and you only have to unpack once - magic! To cruise on a 5-star ship on an itinerary that takes in Canada and Alaska is the stuff bucket lists are made of and this is exactly what myself and my daughter had the privilege of doing. 3 glorious days in Vancouver seeing all the sights including Stanley Park, Granville Island, Capilano Park (absolutely amazing suspension bridge) and, of...

A two night stay in the beautiful, romantic city of Verona including an evening at the opera - what a wonderful mini break! The Verona Opera season is world renowned and for very good reason. The venue is unique - an open air Roman arena built in the 1st century and with a coloured and chequered history! Even without an opera visit, Verona is a gorgeous destination for a city break. It is very easy to get around, is very clean and has lots of high-end and interesting shops, wonderful piazzas, churches, bridges and more. The food, as you would...

How lucky am I to work in this fabulous business and get the opportunity to travel! I was even luckier than normal when I won 7 nights accommodation at the 4 star Gloria Palace Royal in Playa Amadores, Gran Canaria. With my trusty travel companion, Martin (my husband) we availed of this wonderful prize in October and had a wonderful week. The weather was gorgeous, the hotel was fabulous and the food copious. We went All Inclusive which I would highly recommend as it took away the worry of receiving a shocking bill! We were lucky enough...

There is something very special about arriving at a cruise terminal and seeing your ship! No matter how many 5 star hotels you may have been lucky enough to stay in; there is something about the sheer size and brightness of a cruise ship which gets the excitement building! So when our transfer car dropped us at the cruise terminal in Barcelona on the 24th May 2010 and we saw Adventure of the Seas, we were like children at Christmas time we were so excited! The sun was shining and everyone was smiling! What a start to a fantastic cruise...

The Canary Islands and Lanzarote in particular, have always been a very popular destination for sun holidays from Ireland. The year round sunshine, duty free shopping and excellent accommodation all add up to the perfect destination with a reasonably short flying time. Most people are happy to lie by the pool or on the beach during the day and enjoy the wonderful cuisine and entertainment at night. Lanzarote has a lot more to offer than that though! I personally love Lanzarote and try and go at least every couple of years. There is so much to do...

The Costa del Sol in the south of Spain is a second home to many Irish travellers. Everybody knows the resorts of Marbella, Benalmadena and Torremolinos. But there is another side to the Costa del Sol, not as well known but which has a certain magical charm to it and retains a very distinctive Andalucian atmosphere. Nerja is approx. 60kms on the other side (east) of Malaga to the more well known and sometimes crowded resorts. Nerja was a small fishing village which grew! However, they learned from the mistakes of other resorts and kept the building...

I was lucky enough to be invited to join a group of travel agents on a visit to Barbados in September. It was my first visit to the Caribbean but will definitely not be my last! I absolutely loved it and one of the things which impressed me the most was the hospitality of the Bajan people. I have never met such open, welcoming and pleasant people in all of my travels. The island of Barbados is so easy to get around, I would advise anyone going to hire a car for at least a couple of days...

I love my job! How lucky am I to be working at something I am passionate about and be paid for it! In my goal to give my clients the best service possible, I continue always to learn, research and source the best destinations, prices and options I possibly can. To this end, travelling to places I have not yet been is vital, so when an opportunity arises to join an educational trip to a new destination, I grab it. In April of this year I travelled to Abu Dhabi with a group of 10 other travel agents. We...

Sherry came highly recommended by friends of ours for whom she had organised a memorable trip to Australia. As this is our 40th Wedding Anniversary we wanted something special for June 2017. We had an idea that we would like to travel in Canada by train, starting in Toronto - but nothing more. Sherry drew up an itinerary for us and with a few minor tweaks, Marian and I were planning our holiday wardrobe! Sincere thanks, Sherry.

Sherry, as a family we can't thank you enough for all your work booking hotels, villa and car hire for our recent trip to Portugal for our son’s wedding. You took all the worries away from us and the hotel was absolutely lovely for our one night stay and the villa met and exceeded all our expectations. It was ideally situated in walking distance from the centre. Our extended family enjoyed the amenities within the villa which included a large kitchen and laundry room. The 5 bedrooms had private bathrooms and we were able to swim and have family barbecues without having to leave the villa. We enjoyed it very much. You really knew what we needed and it has left us with lovely memories and lots of photographs. On your recommendation we moved to Alvor following the busy schedule we had for the wedding and we relaxed and enjoyed the self-catering apartment right beside the beach which was lovely! Thank you so much - you know we will be back to you!

I have been using Sherry Meagle as my Travel Counsellor since 2009 where she organised my honeymoon. We hadn't an idea of where to start and Sherry kindly visited our home after working hours and sat through a number of different options for us. Since 2009 I have used Sherry for every holiday I have had since, and have had no hesitation in highly recommending her to friends and family. Sherry has always given me great peace of mind that everything is looked after from deciding on location to booking flights, transfers to hotels. I will continue to use Sherry for all future holidays and will continue recommending her to friends, family and colleagues.

I have contacted Sherry in a panic on more than one occasion. Sherry has dealt with my requests in a calm, professional and very friendly manner. At no time was I told my request was not possible and Sherry went above and beyond to accommodate my travel needs to the point of going out of her way to meet me with travel documents and information and secure the best price. She's the best! Thank-you.

As an older traveller it is wonderful to have someone like Sherry to relieve me of the stress of managing my bookings for flights to my destinations and anything else that is relevant to my enjoyment of my time away. I have no hesitation in recommending that others try it out. I imagine you will find the experience one that you will repeat again and again. Happy travelling!

I just wanted to write a quick note to say how wonderful Sherry was in helping us to organise our honeymoon in Italy and Slovenia. Nothing was insurmountable to her and she was a pleasure to deal with over the phone. We moved around a lot on our trip and it was brilliant to have all our train tickets and accommodation organised in advance. Everything went very smoothly. Thanks Sherry

I have used Sherry's professional travel service 3 times now for myself and my family and not only does she organise the best deals and best places to stay, she uses her own experience to make sure that your holiday is tailormade for you. Sherry takes all the stress out of organising a holiday and leaves you to get on with the important stuff - enjoying the perfect break away..

I am delighted to say that we were very pleased with the arrangements you made and the service we got from you. All the various connections worked and your advice was invaluable. I suppose the best I can say is that I have passed on your name to a friend of mine who is quite a traveller. Of course I will continue to keep in touch.

When looking to book a family holiday in America a friend mentioned Travel Counsellors. Having contacted Sherry and explained what we wanted I just sat back and let her do all the hard work! Nothing was too much trouble and she listened to what we wanted to try and do and see in our 3 weeks and came up with a brilliant itinerary at a reasonable price. I've no hesitation in recommending her.
