Hi and thanks for visiting my Travel Counsellors page!

I have travelled all my life (my first birthday was in Mumbai!), so I am delighted to be able to bring Travel Counsellors to Ashbourne, Co Meath. I have lived here for the last 18 years with my wife and two children, who attend local schools.

Before becoming a Travel Counsellor in 2019 I worked for 18 years in a large, city centre travel agency. I have always been fascinated by travel and going places I have never been before, be it the White House in Washington DC or the Great Barrier Reef. I have been fortunate enough to take a safari in South Africa, drive an RV through the Black Hills of South Dakota, walk through the Daintree rainforest with a traditional owner, scuba dive in the Mediterranean and have seen sunrise over Mount Everest. I have stayed in 5*+ hotels and trailer parks, on a houseboat in Kashmir and a luxury train in the African veldt. I must confess that I’m torn as to my favourite city – either Cape Town or Sydney. Sydney has the harbour and it’s where I grew up, but it’s hard to think of a more spectacular backdrop than Table Mountain!

I love booking holidays for my clients – I love the excitement as they see what they are going to see and do when they are away. I am available 7 days a week to help you create your perfect luxury holiday.

Being a part of the award-winning Travel Counsellors team means that I have access to competitive rates on airfares and hotels all over the world. Being fully bonded and regulated by the Commission for Aviation Regulation means that you have complete peace of mind.

Whether your next trip is a family holiday, your honeymoon or ticking items off the bucket list, call me on 086 153 5978 to help you book it.

Customer Story 3

Never used a travel agent before- now I totally get the benefit of doing so. Chris made the process painless and he sorted little things I hadn't even thought about. We gave him our budget and he put together a package for us that took care of everything! Not only would I recommend Chris to others but we will definitely use him again, patient and super nice guy.

A Picture Perfect Sunrise

Chris's blog, 09/10/2019

When I was a boy, I remember my grandfather telling me about his adventures and when he was in Nepal and he saw the sun rise over Mount Everest. At the age of 10 or 11 that had a huge impact on me as the most exotic adventure I could possibly conceive.

Fast forward a dozen years or so and I found myself in Kathmandu at something of a loose end (as one does…) I knew that Mount Everest was in Nepal, but it was more than 100km away. After chatting with some locals, I learned it was possible to go...
