My biggest passion is travel and how amazing it is that I am able to do what I love most as my job.

My name is Ellen, born and raised in The Netherlands and now living in beautiful Ireland. After studying Tourism I worked for many years in 5 star hotels where I learned how to take care of our discerning guests in the best way possible. But travel was my passion and I decided to make it my business too when I joined Travel Counsellors, initially in the Netherlands.

Being part of a global company meant that when I decided to move to Ireland permanently, I could continue doing what I love most and still take care of my clients in both countries. As I have grown my business here, I have had the pleasure of looking after the travel arrangements of some high-profile Irish customers both for dream honeymoons and unique holidays, and now I’m ready to do the same for you.

I’m based in Swords as a Travel Counsellors and we’ve just put down roots in Bettystown, Co. Meath. And as I’m not restricted to 9-5 it means we can chat about your holiday plans whenever suits you best. Most importantly for me is that the experience from start till finish is personal and special, I will try to get to know you and I’m sure I can make all your dream holidays come true.

I travel myself as much as possible, obviously because I love it, but also to be able to advise my clients even better. From safaris in South Africa and Botswana to backpacking in South East Asia, many road trips in the USA, relaxing in the Seychelles, discovering Caribbean islands like Jamaica, the Dominican Republic, Saint Martin and Curacao. I’ve also spent lots of time on city trips in Europe, there are so many beautiful destinations only a few hours away and of course I’ve enjoyed many summer holidays in Mallorca, The Canaries, Italy, France and many more places. Last this year I was one of the lucky Travel Counsellors who went to Brazil to discover this amazing country. My first introduction to South America was amazing and can't wait to see many more countries in that beautiful part of the world.

Something I’m really passionate about is accessible travel. So what is accessible travel? It is making travel accessible to everyone everywhere. So as always when I meet someone or talk to them on the phone, my first question is “where do you want to go”, and I will make that happen.

I look forward to meeting you and helping you with your travel plans. I’m here for any type of holiday, far away or nearby, a city trip or your dream honeymoon, road trip, tailor made holidays, luxurious or standard, business travel, cruises, group travel, winter and summer holidays, or getting married abroad is one of the many options I can help you with. Everything is possible and I’m here for you with personal and friendly advice. Please do not hesitate to contact me, it will be my pleasure to help you.

“Travel is the only thing you can buy, that makes you richer”.

Customer Story 2

Ellen is a great Travel Counsellor. She is willing to go the extra mile and serves every complicated request. Last year I booked a road trip through Arizona and everything was arranged perfectly, I didn't have to care about anything. This year she arranged a nice tour through Scotland for my family and myself. She listens carefully to understand your needs and offers exactly what suits. I am happy to my book future trips with Ellen and will recommend her to my friends.

A friend recommended Ellen Warren. I normally do my own arrangements, but now I talk to Ellen, and everything is done, accommodation booked, flights/seats and transfers all done, plus you have someone who is there for you. Excellent service which I will use again and will recommend her to my friends and clients.

Ellen did an excellent job. She was very helpful in outlining different options and provided great advice in terms of what might work best for me. She was very open to making adjustments to the arrangements when requested. Ellen was very attentive and responded promptly to any additional queries and very efficient in terms of firming up arrangements. Ellen was a pleasure to deal with and I would have no hesitation in recommending her to others.

Without Ellen's help I would have definitely gone mad trying to book our special birthday holiday for my husband to Las Vegas. She is a wonderful and I have already recommended her to 2 of my pals.

Suzanne Redmond, Kildare
Customer Story 7

Having used the services of Ellen before - which resulted in one of our best holidays ever - we had no problem in deciding to ask Ellen to organise our next holiday also. To date, her preparation has been fantastic, and even with a few problems (all down to myself), the holiday is now organised, and all that is left is to actually travel later in the year. Many thanks Ellen.

We needed quite a varied itinerary planned for our sixteen day multi location holiday. Ellen planned it perfectly and even when we needed to change some dates there was no problem. We would have absolutely no problem in recommending Ellen and she will be planning our future holidays.

My wife Sarah and I booked our dream honeymoon with Ellen and we couldn’t recommend her enough. She organized everything for us and took the hassle out of everything. She asked us a few questions about what we wanted and we told her we didn’t want to be stuck in the same place, we wanted to see a couple of places. She recommended a cruise so we went to Miami for 3 nights stay at the Royal Palm Hotel, it was a great location right on Miami Beach. We went on a 7 night Caribbean cruise on the brand new MSC Seaside ship. She gave us great advice and answered any questions that we had. The cruise was amazing from the food to the drink package and each stop off at port we saw plenty of beautiful islands and even went snorkeling and swimming with dolphins. After the cruise we had one more night in Miami before flying home and Ellen had got us upgraded to a suite at the Nobu Hotel Miami. This was a beautiful hotel. We would definitely be booking with Ellen again she made our dream honeymoon come true we loved every minute of it. Thanks Ellen!

Beautiful Brazil

Ellen's blog, 21/03/2019

Brazil was on my bucket list for a long time and recently I was lucky to be able to discover three regions of this huge country in South America during a work trip. After a short stopover in Lisbon we were on our way to Rio de Janeiro! Rio airport is huge, but incredibly efficient. We were out of the airport in no time and within 30 minutes of leaving the plane on the way to the city. We arrived in the evening and our hotel was right on the Copacabana; where else in Rio would you want to stay?!
