Customer Story 1

We were fortunate enough to get the opportunity to visit Iceland in March which was organised by Claire. What can I say, what a fantastic trip from start to finish. Claire was excellent and provided a service above and beyond our expectations. We had nothing to do except turn up at the airport as all our excursions were booked. Claire looked after us so well and I cannot recommend her highly enough. Iceland was such a wonderful experience and the people are so nice. If this trip comes up again, I would highly recommend it through Claire.

Customer Story 1

Couldn't recommend Claire enough - we booked our honeymoon with her and she was so easy to work with on the phone and by email. We found that she really listened to what we were looking for and gave us some options to choose from, and tailored everything to our feedback. Even though we stretched our budget a little higher than expected, it was absolutely worth it for the 5-star experience she gave to us in Greece. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend Claire to anyone looking to book a memorable, totally unforgettable honeymoon

Claire is amazing, absolutely out of this world , she made booking our honeymoon such a simple process , we only had a minor idea of where we would like to go and she has turned it into a trip of a lifetime , including so many destinations that we can visit along the way , so we are making the most of it while we are there , she has made us feel so at ease as we are not used to travelling and would not be aware of minor things that need to be organised for it , Claire is with us every step of the way through emails and phone calls and will be there for us during the trip if we need her for anything , we are so looking forward to our honeymoon in a few months .

Claire organised our amazing honeymoon and was fantastic to deal with from the first day we spoke with her. We discussed the type of honeymoon we would like and Claire came back to us with different itinerary options. She was so knowledgeable about the hotels, areas and things to do. We decided to go on our honeymoon to Bali and Dubai and Claire did everything for us. It was so simple and straightforward... exactly what we needed when we were so busy with wedding prep! She checked us in online, printed out all our documents and sent them to us. All we had to was pack our bags and go!! Claire stayed in touch with us and was only a text away if we had any queries. She gave us a local contact to bring us on tours and recommended places to see. We had a fabulous honeymoon and the planning and organising was completely stress free thanks to Claire. I highly recommended booking with Claire!

I cannot recommend Claire enough if you are booking your honeymoon. She is an absolute dream to work with and talk to. We booked everything over the phone and she made it so easy for us. Claire is so easy to talk to and she just puts you at ease. We didn’t know what we wanted but Claire spent so much time with us, giving us loads of ideas and helping us choose. She is so patient and has a world of knowledge about travelling. Our honeymoon was amazing something we will never forget. Claire was always on the end of the phone if we had questions. We never had to worry about anything. She had everything done for us even down to our luggage tags!

I cannot praise Claire Maher highly enough. We are just back from a river cruise on the Danube. Everything was organised brilliantly and seamlessly, from the quality of the ship, the service, the tours, tour guides and transfers. Claire was checking in with us at various stages of the journey to check all was ok. We will be going straight to Claire for our future holiday arrangements and we would highly recommend anyone to do so. Thank you Claire!

Paul Reid, Dublin
Customer Story 7

Claire was truly fantastic when it came to booking our holiday. We booked a cruise and when I say she went over and above anything we expected, it's an understatement. It was the first holiday where every single thing was organized for us from flights, boarding passes, transfers etc. and everything sent to the app. Claire checked everything was ok with us while we were there and followed up with us after. I would recommend her to anyone.

D Beirne, Croghan, Co Roscommon
Customer Story 8

I couldn’t recommend Claire highly enough. I contacted Claire to organise a holiday for a big birthday and my ideas were Dubai, Maldives, America or Mexico. All different parts of the world but she talked me through every destination and quoted me for every holiday without making me feel like a hindrance. The holiday I booked with Claire is great value for money and couldn’t get a better price elsewhere or myself online. The fact that she provided an excellent service along with great value means I will be back again and have told everyone I know about Claire.

Rachael King, Dublin

I loved, loved, loved dealing with Claire. We have an awful lot going on at the moment so it was great to deal with one person, at times that suited me, on the phone. No queuing anywhere and no messing! Claire is a joy to deal with and has put together a fab honeymoon for us!

Lisa Reilly, Dublin
Customer Story 10

We've just returned from a hassle free, stress free holiday in Dubai booked through Claire. We are incredibly impressed with Claire’s level of service and professionalism. She was so enthusiastic and excited about our trip and really was fantastic, seeing to every detail, from dealing with our boarding passes, filling out our luggage labels, checking us in on both flights, offering us advice on where to go and what to do etc. Nothing was too much trouble. Claire was nothing but superb, she really did everything, apart from board the flights for us. She regularly checked in with us and we can't say thank you enough!

Paula Butler, Leitrim

Zighy Bay

Claire's blog, 21/08/2018

This holiday has to have been one of my favourite trips ever! Having previously honeymooned in another Six Senses resort in the Maldives, we had high expectations and Six Senses Zighy Bay did not disappoint!

We flew direct from Dublin to Abu Dhabi as we had planned a two-centre holiday – Zighy Bay in Oman first and then onto Emirates Palace in Abu Dhabi. The drive from Abu Dhabi to Zighy Bay is approximately 3 and a half hours (only 2 hours from Dubai) but as soon as our driver got on the road, we were glued to the window...
