Claire has gone over and above any of my expectations on booking this holiday for my family of 5 and syncing it with a holiday for my parents to enjoy part of our trip and continue on their travels for a bit more R&R! I would and have highly recommended Claire to lots of people.

Cassandra Cunningham, Galway
Customer Story 12

Claire was an absolute joy to deal with. She was very professional and went to great lengths to tailor make our honeymoon. She provided us with several different options as we had no clue as to what we wanted, and she was so patient with us while we made our decision and answered our questions and queries straight away. We would have no hesitation in recommending Claire to any couple looking for a professional to assist them with planning their honeymoon.

Deirdre Reilly, Sligo
Customer Story 1

Claire took the time to phone us numerous times whilst planning our honeymoon to make sure she planned everything we dreamed of to South Africa and the Maldives! I mean it was planned to perfection and a great app that gave you each and every detail of our journey and stay! With COVID playing havoc, Claire was there to give a quick call to tell us not to worry, Claire had to re organize our honeymoon completely and did this in her stride and made sure we weren’t stressed about it at all! When we were going, Claire linked in loads to ensure we had all the proper extra paperwork that was needed with COVID and gave advice on many things to know and pack! Claire linked in with us on the day of our journey to make sure everything was going ok and also text during our stay and also on our flight home! I could not recommend Claire enough! She gave us the exact honeymoon we wanted and we were delighted !! Thank you so much Claire !! X

Claire organised our honeymoon and I can't recommend her enough. We travelled to Sri Lanka and The Maldives and no stone was left unturned. She really listened to what we had in mind and because she has such great knowledge of the places our itinerary was more suited to us than we could have planned on our own. Claire was always available to answer any questions and always checked in to make sure things were going to plan. Thanks for everything, it really was a trip to a lifetime!

Eleanor Glancy, Dublin
Customer Story 3

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.

Colm Beirne, Offaly

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...
