Travel has always been my passion and as your personal Travel Counsellor, I will strive to create the perfect bespoke travel experience for you. Whether you’re interested in spotting wildlife in South Africa, dining under the stars in the Maldives, diving in Sri Lanka or sailing a yacht through the Great Barrier Reef… I can help you plan your next adventure.

I specialise in bespoke long-haul holidays and honeymoons. On a trip to Iceland a few years ago my now husband surprised me by proposing in the Blue Lagoon. Needless to say, that is a trip I will never forget! We got married in Rome and went to New York on our Honeymoon. Since then I specialise in planning the perfect Honeymoon experience for my customers and after being a finalist in the Brides of Limerick Awards in 2017, 2018 and 2019, I went on to win Honeymoon Planner of the Year 2020 at the Irish Wedding Awards in Dublin earlier this year.

I have first-hand experience of many long-haul destinations such as Australia, Fiji, Hawaii, Kenya, New Zealand, South Africa, Tasmania and a lot of the USA. I even attended Barack Obama’s inauguration in Washington DC back in the day, what an experience! I spent a year working in Sydney and travelled all over Australia from Perth to Broome on the West Coast, Darwin and Alice Springs to Adelaide through the centre, Cairns and Brisbane in the East as well as Canberra, Melbourne and Tasmania. I am a Certified Aussie Specialist, which means I have the experience that can create tailor-made itineraries for that once in a lifetime trip to visit friends and family.

Closer to home I have travelled all over Europe from touring around Italy to the beaches of Spain, creating magical memories in Disneyland Paris and crossing the German Christmas Markets off my bucket list. I also love a cruise holiday, Mediterranean Cruises being my favourite. There really is a cruise to suit every type of traveller from families to solo travellers, groups to honeymoon couples. As your personal Travel Counsellor, I can advise you on the cruise line and ship that will suit your wants and needs. I was lucky enough to be invited to the launch of MSC Bellissima last year and it is a ship I highly recommend!

It is so hard to pick my favourite place in the world as I love Australia, Iceland, Italy and the USA for different reasons. However, my favourite place to send Honeymoon couples is South Africa. It has everything – great shopping and restaurants along the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town, stunning views from Table Mountain, beautiful scenic drives along the Garden Route and of course no trip to South Africa would be complete without a Safari experience. I am also a Certified South African Specialist and would love to help you plan your next trip there.

As a Travel Counsellor, I have the flexibility to work with you on your holiday at a time that suits you, including evenings and weekends.

Please give me a call or send me an email and I will be happy to help you start planning your next adventure.

Looking forward to hearing for you soon!

I have been booking holidays with Susan Ryan for a few years now. We are always very happy with her recommendations and we have never been disappointed. It's a great comfort to know if anything goes wrong there is someone to call. For example last year on our return journey the airline went on strike, we rang Susan and she advised us what to do. I always recommend her to my friends and family.
