Hi, my name is Celine and I live in Newbridge, Co. Kildare, but grew up in the beautiful seaside village of Laytown, Co. Meath. I have worked in the travel industry for over 20 years and still thrive on the pure happiness and enjoyment a holiday can bring to my customers. I believe my job is more than recommendation and advice, but a form of therapy. Travel is extremely therapeutic – it can increase your energy levels, help you think better and clearer, and make you happy – all the ingredients of an active and healthy mind.
I have always had the travel bug and love to explore new and exciting destinations, but I do have some guilty pleasures like Florida and New York where I keep going back! I got married in Central Park, New York and just love the city, while Florida is a place that keeps pulling me back, 9 times and counting. I’ve also visited several other North American cities from, Chicago, Boston, Washington, Miami, San Francisco, and Las Vegas to name just a few. Planning North American adventures has been a specialty of mine for over a decade. I love nothing more than combining a cruise with your American adventure and I have been fortunate to have visited over 10 Caribbean islands while on many different cruises include some of biggest and most modern cruise ships in the world. Symphony of the Seas, MSC Bellissima and Norwegian Bliss are just some of the more recent ones I had the pleasure of enjoying. I’ve been lucky to work and live in Canada for a year, travel extensively throughout Europe, while also visiting South Africa, Australia, and the middle east.
I have organised and travelled with medium to large sports groups, including several GAA teams to North America, as well as some Irish international teams.
With over 20 years’ experience in the travel business, I have gained a vast range of expertise, ranging from that North American road trip, cruising, safari’s, almost every European city, beach or ski resort, the list goes on. And more importantly is the experience of travelling with children. As a mother of 2, I know what it’s like, but can offer some useful tips and advice to make your trip less stressful and more memorable.
I take great pride in getting to know my customers and really understanding their requirements and offer a truly personalised service which is why Travel Counsellors is a natural fit for my business. With Travel Counsellors, we ensure you are always financially protected as we are licensed and bonded in Ireland with the Commission for Aviation Regulation.
So, if you are looking at your next family adventure, dream honeymoon, bucket list destination or just looking for a little travel therapy, give me a call.
