Let me take you on a journey; I want to make your next holiday experience the most stress free and enjoyable experience from start to finish.

I have worked in the Travel Industry for over 30 years and have travelled extensively during this time, from amazing family holidays in most European destinations, to the USA and the Caribbean. Having a true passion for this fabulous part of the world, I have extensive knowledge and insight on most of the Caribbean islands. Barbados is probably one of my favourite islands.

No matter how big or small I will manage your trip with the same attention to detail as I would my own.

With first-hand knowledge of the world’s most exceptional hotels, resorts, cruise lines and airlines, I pride myself on saving you time by recommending and delivering results based on your personal needs. As an independent travel agent, I have no ties to airlines, hotels or tour companies - my mission is to offer you the best option for your holiday and budget. I pride myself on offering genuine advice you can trust every time.

Combining Travel Counsellors award winning technology, my experience and the fact that I work from home, allows me the flexibility to work around your schedule as I am available at a time and place to best suit you, including evenings and weekends. I specialize in tailor-made long haul travel and cruises.

Some of my favourite destinations are:-

• Caribbean islands, Barbados, St Lucia, Jamaica, Antigua, St Vincent’s and the Grenadines, Aruba in The Dutch Antilles Cuba
• South Africa: Cape Town and the Garden Route, Johannesburg

Customer Story 8

Martina was great to work with when booking our Honeymoon. I commend her patience with all the changes and back and forth with proposals. She went above and beyond to make sure our Honeymoon was tailored to us and that we got the best possible value for money. I would 100% use Travel Counsellors again especially for booking a big holiday.

Lisa McDonnell, Dublin
Customer Story 9

Martina looked at all aspects of our trip and gave some very good advice regarding our itinerary. Research was conducted by Martina very comprehensively and options were presented in a very organised and clear manner. The fact that I was able to contact Martina after 6 in the evening really benefited me as I am unable to conduct such phone calls during the day. It meant that my holiday was organised and booked much more efficiently.

Our Amazing Safari in South Africa

Martina's blog, 30/07/2019

Earlier this year my husband Ronnie and I took a 3-week holiday to South Africa.

We wanted to experience a Safari and travel the Entire Western and Eastern Cape Garden Route (featured in my next blog) which is a route that many of my beautiful clients have taken in the past.

We flew overnight from Dublin to...
