Travel has always been my passion, I specialise in custom made long haul holidays, weddings abroad and honeymoons. On a trip to Iceland two years ago, my boyfriend surprised me by proposing in the Blue Lagoon. Needless to say that is a trip I will never forget! We have recently returned from our wedding which took place in Rome, Italy and now that I have first-hand experience as a Bride-to-Be and a Travel Agent of what goes in to organising a wedding abroad, I feel I am best placed to help those that would like to go down this aisle too.
During 2007 and 2008, I decided to take some time out and see the world, so I set off on an adventure of a lifetime with some of my close friends. We visited Kenya, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and various places throughout the USA such as Hawaii, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Washington DC and New York. I spent the best part of a year working in Sydney and travelled all over Australia from Perth to Broome on the West Coast, Darwin and Alice Springs to Adelaide through the centre, Cairns and Brisbane in the East as well as Canberra, Melbourne and Tasmania.
I am a Certified Aussie Specialist, which means that I can create tailor-made itineraries for that once in a lifetime trip, or a flight to visit friends and family with some side trips. I have been to many European beach resorts and many theme parks in Europe and the USA, so if it’s sunshine and fun you need, I can cover that too.
My favourite place so far has been Cape Town, South Africa. It has everything – great shopping and restaurants along the V&A Waterfront, stunning views from Table Mountain, the history of Robben Island, beautiful scenic drives along the Garden Route as well as the winelands of Franschhoek and Stellenbosch and of course, Safari where you will see the Big Five. I am also a Certified South African Specialist and would love to help you plan your next trip there.
As a Travel Counsellor, I have the flexibility to work with you on your holiday at a time that suits you, including evenings and weekends.
Please give me a call or send me an email and I will be happy to help you.
Please send me your holiday or travel requirements and I will do my best to help you.

I have been booking holidays with Susan Ryan for a few years now. We are always very happy with her recommendations and we have never been disappointed. It's a great comfort to know if anything goes wrong there is someone to call. For example last year on our return journey the airline went on strike, we rang Susan and she advised us what to do. I always recommend her to my friends and family.

Highly recommended Susan’s services! You may be tempted to book online yourself but having expert advice and someone who is there for you every step of the way is invaluable, especially when we are going on our first holiday as a family. Fantastic.

Thank you Susan! We are having the time of our lives discovering every thing Sicily has to offer! We have visited Mount Etna, seen museums, went to where the Godfather was filmed and are today going to local shops. Tomorrow we will go on a wine tasting tour and Friday to see Syracuse.

We had a super time in Croatia - From the time we checked in until we arrived back everything was top class. Wedding was in the old city, reception in a beautiful resort. Hotel meal and dancing in the open air - a great two weeks. Well done on all your recommendations and booking.

Susan Ryan made booking a holiday sooo easy! We're not seasoned travellers so we didn't even know where to start. Susan looked after everything from start to finish, looked at lots of different options for us and answered ALL our questions. I will have no hesitation in going back to Susan to book our next holiday. Now, all I've to think about is packing our bags

I have found Susan Ryan most helpful while booking my holiday, she provided numerous options and was happy to revise when I made numerous changes to dates/locations. All requests were provided by email which gave me ample material to review and help with my decision process. She took all the hassle from the entire process and made the entire process painless.

Susan was nothing but helpful when we were booking our flights. She is an absolute professional who was always willing to do everything she could to help us. We sent several emails to Susan asking her to change slight details of the plan, each question was answered promptly and nothing was an issue for her. She even managed to secure the last three seats for us at the economy price which we were absolutely thrilled with! I would highly recommend Susan to all of my friends due to her strong levels of customer service, her organisational skills and her professionalism. It is evident that Susan has a passion about traveling, and this comes across in the knowledge she has about various places.

I was interested in booking a holiday to Bali but having never been there before- I had no clue what kind of area or accommodation to look for. There were so many options and a lot to think about but Susan was great! She completely took the stress out of the whole thing. It was as simple as telling her the type of holiday I wanted and she found it for me. The entire process has been absolutely seamless and I'm already recommending her to friends. Can't wait for my holiday in 2017!

The idea of a cruise always intrigued me but I never took the plunge as I thought it was the type of holiday that was reserved for older couples and retired people. How wrong I was! When I got the opportunity to go on a 2 night trip to Istanbul and a 3 night cruise from Istanbul to Venice I jumped at the chance. After a very comfortable flight with Turkish Airlines we landed in Istanbul late one Monday evening. The Pera Marmara was to be our home for the next two nights – a fabulous 4*hotel in...

I was very lucky to fly over to Orlando and experience all that it has to offer, from amazing hotels to the theme parks over there. Now I have a very bad fear of heights and have never been on a rollercoaster before – I can still say the same after this trip. I was worried that I would be missing out but there is so much more to do over there you’d have to go back year after year to get it all done! I flew from Shannon but there are also flights from Dublin, you can clear...

Iceland has always been at the top of my list, so I was very excited to finally get to go for 3 nights with my boyfriend one November. We went on an organised package that included our return flights, airport transfers to and from the hotel in Rekyavik, 3 nights B&B in Reykjavik Lights hotel, rep on site to help with any queries or to book any excursions while you are there. There are direct flights from Dublin, so if you wish to go for a shorter or longer stay this can be tailor made to suit you. On arrival in...
