  • Eat, prey, LOVE Bali. Magnificent beaches, breathtaking scenery and interesting culture. Bali is a great destination for honeymooners, family and friends. With so much to do from learning to surf to white water rafting or just top up that tan. My favorite spot on the beach was the Sheraton Kuta, fun pool parties and glorious sea views and for the shopper in you the mall is right next door. We went to Ubud and chilled out in the luscious forest, took a walk through the paddy fields and bartered in the markets. The Maya Ubud Resort and Spa was the ideal place for this with your own private villa.

  • I wanted to see Cuba before it changes, so I would recommend staying 3 nights in Havana and the Parque Central Hotel is the perfect base. Just across the road from Central Park, the Hop on Hop off bus stop and the government buildings also just round the corner from the Revaluation museum, a must see. For a rest in the afternoon the roof top pool is the perfect place to chill. Top up you tan in Varadero on one its white sandy beaches or be a bit adventurous and do a jeep safari. The hotels are all inclusive and have evening entertainment for all tastes. Don’t forget to try the mojito’s!

  • I stopped in Singapore on my return journey from Bali, to break the journey and experience another Far Eastern City . The first thing that struck me about Singapore was the cleanliness of the City, they even have a law against chewing gum!! There is so much to do in Singapore. I stayed in the Shangri La Hotel, What a hotel !!! Fantasic standard of accommodation , it definitely had the WOW factor and it’s in a superb location. Don’t leave Singapore without experiencing the following trips, Changi WW11 War Trail & Museum Tour, Singapore Round-Island Tour with Changi Prison, Kranji War Memorial and Gardens by the Bay and River Safari Experience . It’s a City which is definitely worth visiting in my opinion.

  • I recently returned from my honeymoon in Mexico. We stayed for 7 nights in Secrets the Vine in the heart of Cancun and 7 nights in The Secrets Silver Sands on the Riviera Cancun. This was the perfect combination as we had the best of both worlds . Luxurious 5* hotels with unlimited All-inclusive that included premium drinks and gourmet dining, world famous Cancun nightlife like Coco Bongos a short stroll from Secrets The Vine . A variety of water sports in the 3 shades of blue Golf of Mexico and Miles of beautiful white sands. We took a variety of day trips, which we booked in advance and paid off along with our honeymoon , so had nothing to pay out once we arrived. I would highly recommend a ‘Swimming with the Dolphins’. This was an amazing experience and I felt we really got great value for money. If you wanted to combine Cancun with a second destination, Las Vegas would be the perfect place to add onto the start of end of your trip. This really was the honeymoon of a lifetime, and I couldn’t recommend it highly enough .

  • What can I say about Vegas except it’s the best city ever! Like New York it’s a city that never sleeps and if gambling isn’t your thing, don’t worry, there is still plenty to keep you entertained. Be enthralled by the dancing fountains of Bellagio Resort or take a gondola ride through the Venetian Hotel, fly through The Strip by helicopter or to the Grand Canyon… there really is something for everyone. I stayed for 4 nights on my own honeymoon at the newest, hippest Hotel on The Strip, The Cosmopolitan, and couldn’t recommend it highly enough. The Buffet at The Wicked Spoon restaurant was to die for, as was the views of the Bellagio Fountain from the terrace in our hotel suite. The Chandelier Bar made from Swarovski crystals was breathtaking!! First class shopping, first class dining, first class shows, what’s not to love??

  • I travelled to Kenya with Kenyan Airways. The first part of my holiday was a 7 nights Safari starting in Nairobi and finishing in Mombasa. We got to see the big five, which the was amazing, to say the least. The accommodation was of good standard, in either Tents or Lodges, as part of the Safari, we moved around different areas. The highlight of my trip was when we arrived at the Masi Mara, and we watched the sun set over the plains with drinks in hand, also known as a Sun Downer. We got to meet the Marai people and a balloon trip with champagne breakfast was a highlight for me. Following the Safari, we ended the trip at the beach in Mombasa. Since coming home I have recommended this holiday to family & friends as a trip of a lifetime, one that you would never forget and one that should definitely go on the must do list.

  • A very cosmopolitan city, airport to the city is approx 76km so just under an hour’s drive. Guests can spend their days with a trip to the Batu Caves, with over 270 steps up to the caves it’s not for the faint hearted!. All along the steps up to caves were monkeys that sit and wait to steal your water bottles and flower tributes that locals place at the temples so be warned (it was quite funny to watch them steal from people walking up that ignored the warnings!!). At the foot of the steps there is 140ft high statue of Lord Murugan that is quite impressive. Another great half day trip would be to the KLCC Aquarium located beside the convention centre, the admission price was €12.50 per adult, it was great to see the Sharks, turtles, otters and many other sea creatures some of which you could put your hand into the tank and touch. No visit to Kuala Lumpur would be complete without a visit to the PETRONAS Twin Towers they stand taller than the Empire State Building, they are amazing when all lit up at night, it will cost you around €25pp to go the towers to the observation platform, tickets need to be booked the day prior and best to go early to get the best view. There are 2 huge shopping centers in Kuala Lumpur the KLCC and the Pavilion both have a mix of very high end stores and regular stores, China Town is great for the markets and Haggling is great fun and is expected.

  • Sorrento is a small town in Campania, southern Italy, with some 16,500 inhabitants. It is a popular tourist destination which can be reached easily from Naples and Pompeii, as it lies at the south-eastern end of the Circumvesuviana rail line. The town overlooks the Bay of Naples as the key place of the Sorrentine Peninsula, and many viewpoints allow sight of Naples itself, Vesuvius and the Isle of Capri. The Amalfi Drive (connecting Sorrento and Amalfi) is a narrow road that threads along the high cliffs above the Tyrrhenian Sea. Ferry boats and hydrofoils provide services to Naples, Amalfi, Positano, Capri and Ischia. Sorrento's sea cliffs and luxury hotels have attracted notable people, including Enrico Caruso and Luciano Pavarotti. Sorrento is famous for the production of limoncello, a digestif made from lemon rinds, alcohol, water and sugar. Other agricultural production includes citrus fruit, wine, nuts and olives. Wood craftsmanship is also developed. I went to Sorrento mid April. The weather was really pleasant, best time of year to visit is from Mid April till October time. Visit some one of the best churches Chiesa di San Francesco, Its evocative architecture, secluded tranquility and seasonal flowers create a unique environment for contemplation and quiet, far from the hubbub of the city, Musical evenings and concerts are also sometimes held there. Take a wander around Sorrento’s main square palazzo where you will find Plenty of amazing restaurants to sample real Italian food and plenty of shops to choose from.

  • South Africa - 7 countries in one!! Situated on the southern tip of Africa - lies the vibrant and cosmopolitan city of Cape town. Few places in the world pose such culture and history in one city. As well as good shops and restaurants on the beach and off the beach , live music, which are found close to Victoria and Albert waterfront and some stunning views of lions head and Table mountain as your back drop. A Trip up on a cable car up to Table Mountain is a must do , the views from here are absolutely amazing and was a major highlight of my trip ( tip when wake up and it’s a clear day best do table mountain). You will also see the beautiful Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens on the eastern side of the mountain . Take a city tour that will bring you around all the must sees and historic places to visit. There is so much to see and do the list is endless - and this is just around Cape town. Take a day trip from Cape Town to visit Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve .This spectacular nature reserve, where you can enjoy stunning scenery, fantastic walks and deserted beaches. As part of this trip, stop off at Boulders Beach and meet the colony of 3,000 African penguins.You couldn’t leave Cape Town without a visit to Robben Island, a former prison (now a national monument) where even a casual visit becomes an emotional journey. Once you arrive on the island, where many of South Africa's freedom fighters, including Nelson Mandela, were incarcerated, and you can see a Mandela's cell. After your time in Capetown, why not head away on one of the most scenic and breathtaking views on the Garden Route , with driving on the same side of the road as ourselves its very easy for us to do. And here you will be able to stop off at different towns and scenic areas along the way , Oudtshoorn , the Crags , Plettenberg Bay, which will lead you onto Eastern Cape and then the real adventure will start on Safari.

  • Modern city, great beaches, amazing hotels and food for every palate. Ideal for couples or families – you name it Dubai as it all. It wasn’t the huge Wild Wadi water park or the indoor skiing that appealed to me most, but the thrill of dune bashing in a 4x4 followed by a BBQ in the desert. Sumptuous food at some of the top restaurants and spending time relaxing in the most amazing hotels ever built. Dubai really does have it all.

  • New York is the place to be! Shop till you drop for all your designer needs in Macys & Bloomingdales or head off to Jersey Gardens for some fabulous clothes at outlet prices and its only a 30 min bus journey from Manhattan. After working up an appetite in the shops why not head to Smith & Wollensky on 49th St at 3rd Avenue for not only the best steak in NYC but also the biggest! For evening entertainment head over to Carolines Comedy club on Broadway for a good old fashion New York Roast which has the best up and coming stand up acts in NYC some you may recognize from E! & MTV. NYC is a great city, always buzzing with something for everyone!

  • Lake Garda is the largest of the Lakes; it stretches between the Alps and the Dolomites. The scenery along the Lakes is absolutely breathtaking. I stayed in Riva at the Sole Hotel which is close to the lively piazza. The restaurant here is lovely and you can dine looking out on to the Lake and then stroll to one of the many bars in the square. Sometimes in the square they have live music in the evenings, a great place to take in the scenery and watch the world go by. Take a visit to Gardaland it is great fun, it has a sea life Aquarium and plenty of amusements too.

  • Barbados is my favourite place in the Caribbean. The people or so friendly and very proud of their island, their main concern is that you relax and enjoy yourself. On arrival we were told that we would be doing a lot of liming! Liming is the Barbadian term for relaxing, enjoying food, drink and the company of others! A must visit is Oistins Fish Fry – this is open every night but Friday night is the night to go! It’s where the locals hang out, dance and eat fish and drink banks beer and rum! There are little stalls that sell local handmade crafts too. This is a great place to really experience what Bajan people and their culture is all about – well worth a visit! Its on the South Coast of the island.

  • Antigua, this was a total different holiday from what I normally would take. I stayed at the Galley Bay resort , situated on the beachfront. From our room we could walk directly onto the beach. Antigua is famous for having 365 beaches, one for every day of the year. If you are looking for a night out, you could head to English harbor, it has a few local restaurants and bars. While we were there we took in a half day snorkeling trip, we also took the plunge with a zip line canopy adventure. I would also highly recommend a daytrip to Antigua’s sister Island of Barbuda, where we visited the Frigate Bird Sanctuary.

  • The people in Thailand are the kindest people I have ever met. The riverside of Bangkok is fantastic, very relaxing and would be nice for couples. Asiatique is across the river and has plenty of restaurants, bars and shops. When travelling around make sure to use the BTS SKY Train to avoid traffic, you really can get everywhere fast with this. TUK TUK’s are great for short journeys but get your price before you step in. Haggle for everything even in the big shopping malls! I then took a 50 minute flight to the beautiful Island of Koh Samui where I stayed in Chaweng, this is the liveliest resort in Koh Samui, plenty of restaurants and a great bar street. Friday Night’s take a visit to Fishermans Village in Boput – this is a market from 6pm to 10pm, you can buy make up, bags, jerseys, and local souvenirs all at really good prices. There is plenty of really good street food along the way. Also the island of Koh Phangan is about 30 minutes by speedboat from Koh Samui. This is where the full moon parties take place. But also some fabulous hotels and beautiful beaches it almost has a Maldives feel to it.

  • Sri Lanka is not all about beach, it has Culture, history, wildlife not to mention delicious food! . You should definitely explore before you soak up the sun on the beach. Popular stops would be a visit to the Dambulla caves, these are Sri Lanka’s Largest Rock cave Temples and date back to 2nd Century BC. Close by you can climb Sigiriya Rockfortress it’s has over 1200 steps, it’s a bit of a climb but the views from the top are definitely worth it! Travel onwards to Kandy, this is a famous for Temple of the Tooth Relic. While here you should also get a Ayurveda massage which is so relaxing and much cheaper than western prices, check out the Bazaar and do an evening cultural Show. Outside Kandy you can visit Tea Plantations and stock up on the many varieties on offer, you can also visit spice gardens which make for an interesting stop.

  • A great way to see Thailand is to do a Twin Centre. A couple of days in Bangkok followed by some relaxation in Khao Lak. Bangkok is great for the nightlife and Shopping 1 of my Favourite bars here is the Red Sky bar based in the Centara Grand At Central World. It’s on the 55th Floor so has amazing view’s over Bangkok, they have a great cocktail menu and a live band playing most nights. Next door is the Central World Shopping centre which is great for some retail Therapy. Khao Lak has amazing beaches and a small town centre with a few shops and Restaurants so it’s a lot less commercialised than some of the other resorts in Thailand. You can totally chill out on the beach here or keep yourself busy exploring ,hiking and Kayaking .

  • Just a 3 hour flight from Dublin to Catania will find you in Sicily. We transferred to the main resort of Taormina by private transfer, which took an hour. Whether you’re a beach lover or City Slicker, the resort of Taormina has it all. Taormina Mare has a picturesque shingle beach with quaint hotels on its shoreline. If your budget will stretch to stay at the 5 star Villa Sant Andrea, it would be money well spent. Board the cable car for a 5 minute ride uphill to Taormina Town ,where you will be spoiled for choice with the shops and restaurants which line the main street or ‘Corso Umberto’. You could spend a whole afternoon sat at an outdoor café, with an Italian espresso, and watch the world go by. The views over the bay from the Town Square are amazing. A day trip to Messina for ‘The Godfather Tour’ which was the location for the Godfather Part 1, is a must do. But book early, as it only departs on Tuesdays and Fridays

  • I just loved the Maldives with its turquoise waters and stunning beaches. I just couldn’t believe there was only 1 resort on each island. You fly into Male the capital and take a speedboat or seaplane transfer (which is great fun and a great start to your holiday). I took a boat trip to one of the 200 uninhabited islands, I felt like a castaway for those few hours! Spa treatments are a very big part of the Maldives and make sure to treat yourself. If you are looking for total relaxation this is the place to go, you can even book in for a couples massage as a romantic treat
