Specialising in luxury honeymoons, bucket list travels, cruises and long haul trips, creating a bespoke and personalised service for my clients. I am extremely fortunate that I have had the opportunity to travel all over the world. Even after 13 years of working in the travel industry, and having visited over 50 countries, I am still searching for new and exciting experiences, and two recent expedition cruises, one to the Galapagos and the other to the Arctic just blew me away. These are ideal trips for anyone looking to get off the beaten path., after all it isn't too often you get to spot polar bears in their natural habitat! Some of my top experiences include taking the iconic Rocky Mountaineer train through the Canadian Rockies, staying in an over-water villa in the Maldives, swimming with wild dolphins in New Zealand and spending a night under the stars onboard a yacht in Thailand. An African safari is also high up on my most memorable trips!
Being a Personal Travel Counsellor allows me to use my passion for travel to create unique and amazing trips, whether this is a once in a life time dream, a luxury honeymoon, a family holiday, or cruise vacation that you will remember for years to come.

I appreciate that your time away is incredibly valuable, and I know that that with my extensive knowledge and great supplier relationships worldwide, I can ensure your holiday is truly special and unique. Working with Travel Counsellors allows me to offer the highest level of personalised service which I believe is an important part of getting you the perfect trip. My aim is to make planning your trip as enjoyable and stress free as possible, as well as giving you complete piece of mind as we are fully licensed and bonded, so your money is safe.

It can be hard to find time to sit down and plan a holiday so I am available for a one to one service at a time and location convenient to you, including evenings and weekends, either in person, over the phone or even a zoom video call. If you are stuck for any inspiration or just want to talk through a few ideas about turning them into a reality I’d love to have a chat with you, please feel free to give me a call or drop me an email.

Sarah was a great help planning our honeymoon. We had some specific things and we changed our mind a few times but she was very patient and got us everything we wanted in the end.

Amy Woods, Lucan
Customer Story 4

Sarah has been absolutely fantastic in helping us to plan our dream honeymoon to Japan. We wouldn't have known where to start but with Sarah, it was possible to organise a honeymoon even she was jealous of! Thanks so much Sarah!

Triona Keane, Swords, Dublin
Customer Story 5

Sarah was very easy to deal with right from the beginning. We told her where we would like to go and Sarah came back with different options straight away that were within our budget. All details were made available on an app that is accessible via a link sent by email. Payment was processed on the app so it was a very easy process. While we were away on honeymoon, Sarah was only a message away and responded very quickly if we had any questions about anything, which put us more at ease. Sarah made the organisation of our honeymoon very easy and we would definitely use her service again.

Eibhlin Farrell, Dublin
Customer Story 6

Sarah was so helpful during our initial consultation, answering questions I had on a few different locations. She is well travelled and very knowledgeable. Once I had narrowed down where we wanted to go Sarah sent me various different options to look at. Nothing was too much trouble and any questions I asked she responded promptly with the answers. She found us a great deal for our honeymoon and has been a real pleasure to deal with. I would highly recommend for anyone searching for a travel consultant.

An excellent service from start to finish, it was so easy. Sarah was just so lovely. She really understood what we wanted and got us such an amazing honeymoon at an exceptional value. She is incredibly thorough and so accommodating and friendly. Her knowledge and experience are really broad with regard to travel.

We have found Sarah to be excellent, helping us to organise our honeymoon. She has taken all the stress away so we can get excited for our honeymoon! She has been so efficient and always gets back to our queries so quickly, she goes above and beyond and we can’t wait for our honeymoon!

Victoria Grainger, Dublin
Customer Story 9

We booked our honeymoon through Sarah very last minute as Covid had us in doubt about where we could go. She jumped on the ball immediately, listened to what we wanted and sent us a few options which we were very happy with and we got everything sorted very quickly. Everything was arranged for us as promised and the hotel and resort was wonderful. We were so happy with Sarah's service that when it came time for us to book our babymoon we went back to her. Even though our budget was much lower than the honeymoon, she found us the most wonderful resort and package we could hope for, providing us with luxury and comfort. Very professional and friendly service, quick to respond, and all the information was very well packaged. I was very happy with the service and felt well looked after!

Customer Story 10

I cannot commend Sarah enough on this service. Sarah was recommended to me by a colleague in work. From the moment we spoke, she understood exactly what we were looking for in a honeymoon and more. The options presented were perfect and within 3 days we had booked the perfect location. I had a few deal breakers (as we are taking our 4 year old) but Sarah was so patient and ensured everything was met. The easiest trip we have ever booked. Thank you

Customer Story 11

We really appreciated all the work Sarah did to put together our dream honeymoon for us and also being so patient when we changed our mind on the type of honeymoon we wanted. We have recommended Sarah to our friends who are getting married or planning a big holiday in the next year as she really went above and beyond for us.

Sarah has became our go to trusted advisor on all things travel, be it special anniversary trips or family holidays and everything else in between. Nothing is too much trouble and we always receive incredible service with a smile. This particular trip to Mexico was booked in lightening speed and when compared to online booking systems was thousands of euros cheaper. Sarah is also managing a big 40th trip for my husband in July, again tremendous service for us and our guests! Thanks to Travel Counsellors and Sarah for the ever amazing service and best value.

Customer Story 5

Sarah is an absolute STAR. She started planning our honeymoon for us in 2020, but then due to covid it was cancelled. Then we moved it to 2021, but because we still weren't comfortable with travelling considering the world wasn't out of the woods yet with COVID, we cancelled again. Each time she was supportive and helpful. We finally booked our honeymoon with her for April 2021, and again she was very helpful and quick. We got everything boomed and sorted in less than a week. Eoin and I are so grateful to you, Sarah. You made our honeymoon planning so stress-free even in a crazy covid world. We look forward to working with you again in the next future. xx

Sarah helped me book our dream honeymoon. Sarah was always very helpful and even when I changed my mind on the location, she had no problem starting from scratch to make sure it was planned to perfection. Her experience in the industry is so obvious and super helpful when it comes to decision making. I am so looking forward to going on our honeymoon in June!! Thank you Sarah, you are a gem!!

Laura O'Regan, Cork
Customer Story 8

We booked our honeymoon through Sarah and the whole process was so easy. We went in with one idea and ended up going for something entirely different and Sarah put together different options and talked us through everything. She has been so helpful and very responsive to any questions we had. Great experience all round!

Sarah is warm, friendly and so accommodating. She takes on board all of the things that are important to you for travelling and goes above and beyond to achieve them for you. I have always planned my own trips and holidays but I am so happy that I chose Sarah to organise our honeymoon. I feel completely confident in her abilities to give us the holiday of a lifetime.

Luxury Thailand

Sarah's blog, 15/03/2022

The Land of Smiles, where visitors are very often surprised by the ability of Thai people to smile through virtually every situation, and visiting Thailand coming out of the pandemic this couldn't be more evident. The Thai people are very welcoming and despite the difficult government procedures in place at the time of travelling, those working in hospitality on the ground made sure it was as hassle free as possible (since the time of visiting all these restrictions have now been lifted making it a super easy destination to experience once again).

Like everyone after the past few years, some R&R...
