As your personal Travel Counsellor, I provide a unique and trusted travel service. With 28 years’ experience and using the most up to date award winning technology I can source, plan and tailor make dream holidays world-wide.

I take pride in providing a very personal and professional one-to-one service to all my customers. Every inquiry is treated like it is my own. My flexibility enables me to speak with my customers outside of office hours whether that be evenings or weekends.

Since joining Travel Counsellors in February 2015, I have grown my business year on year and built wonderful relationships with my customers. The personal touch and concierge service associated with being a Travel Counsellor is very important to me and I will ensure you receive the best possible travel experience.

Over the past 27 years, I have been afforded fantastic opportunities to travel to many different destinations. For this reason, I will be able to make comprehensive recommendations based on your personal requirements and deliver the best options available to you.

I have covered a multitude of holiday options for customers including honeymoons, families, couples, groups, and solo travellers. My extensive experience ranges from planning European holidays, ski trips, luxury travel, cruise holidays, tailor-made itineraries to Australia, New Zealand, Asia, South America and beyond, Canada, USA and Caribbean destinations. But it does not end there… I can organise your attraction tickets, sightseeing tours, unique experiences, excursions, and much more before you even depart.

My main area of expertise is cruise. If you are thinking about embarking on a cruise holiday, let me help you choose the perfect itinerary. Whether you are an experienced cruiser or contemplating your first ever cruise, I am available to have an in-depth chat and answer any questions you might have.

The Maldives is my personal favourite destination and is unrivalled if your type of holiday is pure luxury and relaxation with the most amazing beaches you won’t find anywhere else. Some other destinations I have first-hand experience of are The Seychelles, Thailand, Caribbean and Mediterranean Cruises, Mexico, Barbados, Orlando including Walt Disney World and Universal Studios, Miami, many European resorts, and cities including Disneyland Paris. My most recent cruise holiday was an amazing experience on the brand-new Celebrity Edge cruise which is outstanding in design. You can view my detailed blog on my page about this trip and more personal experiences.

Put your travel plans in the hands of a trusted travel professional and let me take away all the hassle from you, so all you must do is sit back, relax, and enjoy.

You will also have the comfort of knowing that you are booking with a fully licensed and bonded company which means your money is protected. Travel Counsellors are licensed and bonded under the Commission for Aviation and Regulation in Ireland.

I sincerely look forward to dealing with you and welcome all customers and enquiries.

Customer Story 1

Sharon was recommended to me and I would 100% recommend Sharon to a friend or family member. Sharon listened to exactly what we wanted while also making the best effort to keep costs down. Sharon provided personal recommendations which we loved and appreciated.

Customer Story 2

What can I say about Sharon, she is amazing at her job, nothing is too big or small for Sharon, she goes the extra mile. I have booked many cruises with her. I always find her to be so professional and when I chat with her about destinations I would love to visit, she always comes back with the perfect cruise. Also the lovely little touches like a text when you are away, checking if cruise is going ok and if there are any problems. Thank you Sharon for arranging all the lovely cruises for me and especially the latest one for next year, another tick off my bucket list.

If there was an 11, Sharon would get it. Simply amazing at what she does. I literally had to worry about nothing. In particular, like so many we could not travel over 2 years, Sharon kept us informed at all times and made sure we didn't lose out in anyway. Flights booked for 2022 thanks to Sharon's amazing work. Highly recommend her.

On arrival at Mahe Island we quickly passed through the airport, into our transfer and on our way. Very efficient!

We were warmly welcomed at the outstanding Mango House, LXR Hotels and Resort located in Baie Lazare on the Southwest of the Island. This secluded luxury hotel was once the former family home of Italian photographer Gian Paolo Barbieri. With forty-one sea-facing villas and suites, unique dining venues and a wellness spa, all offering sublime views of the bay.
