|Random Fact About Me: ||I hate to fly but love to travel! |
Born and raised in Co. Offaly, I moved to Boston to work at Crystal Travel. I previously worked in Skibbereen, Cork doing exactly the same thing - planning vacations.
I have been in the travel business for about 18 years. I could not imagine doing another job; I get so much satisfaction when people enjoy my home country. Having traveled all around the world myself I feel my experience and knowledge can help people make the most of their trip.
My favorite place in Ireland would have to be Baltimore, West Cork - only a small little village it has so much character and the Joile Brise still has the best pizza in the world.
West Cork is like a second home to me! Outside of Ireland my favorite place to visit was Dubai. The total opposite of Ireland in terms of weather but great to experience a whole new culture - and the scenery amazed me.
I work in travel because I get such a joy from helping people plan vacations. I love to see people discover new places and make new memories.
Our trip was well organized and I was able to discuss the particulars with Vivienne, who was always available. The whole group really appreciated her attention to detail and choice of accommodations and restaurants. Our driver was fantastic. This trip to Ireland was my third and my best!

Vivienne, it was wonderful! The weather, the food, the lodgings were delightful as were all the people we met. The night we stayed in Adare Manor was probably the best. We came home with all kinds of treasures from knitting mills, gift shops, Waterford outlet and Powers Whiskey for our Irish Coffee. The young man who was the bartender at Adare gaveus his recipe! Thanks so much for your help, it was that much more enjoyable because of your assistance.
