I had the big picture accomplished but it was so nice to have help with the small details and how many nights to spend in each place.”

Ireland Travel Consulting Frequently Asked Questions
I’m not sure what I want to do or where I want to go in Ireland. Should I wait to book until I’ve researched more?

Can you make my reservations for me?
Since I am not a traditional travel advisor, I cannot make any reservations for you.
Most travel advisors are generalists–many will book vacations through suppliers or individual providers regardless if they have ever stepped foot in Ireland before.
The independent travelers that I work with are confident with booking hotels, airfare on their own. They know exactly the kind of locally inspired trip they want and are seeking an expert to help ensure they are creating it.
When you work with me, you can feel confident you’re booking the right places and getting to see iconic sites and off-the-beaten-path gems. All while connecting with locals and supporting small businesses across Ireland.
My trip is so expensive already. Should I really spend the money?
If you want a full days of exploring Ireland without feeling like you are running from site to site. If you want time for spontaneity and conversation (perhaps a pint or a cup of tea in a cozy pub). If you want make sure you don’t miss the best bits of hidden Ireland. If you want to hit the easy button and finally be confident about your itinerary and all your plans. Then, yes. This investment is entirely worth it and I promise you will have a better trip because you did.
