My career in travel only started around 5 months ago but I’m loving it. My love for travel started when I was young, going on holidays was my favourite time of the year.

Claire ByrneMy mam and dad didn’t get much say in where we were going though because all me and my sister wanted to do was go to Spain so we could go to Portaventura! Although I haven’t been there in a few years now it’s somewhere I’d definitely recommend every family to go to. Holidays are special for everyone, whether you’re going as a family, as a group of friends or to see someone abroad. I’m here to make sure you’ll be left with lifelong memories.

Some places I’ve been lucky enough to go to are Italy, Orlando, Canada, Amsterdam, London and Las Vegas. My favourite holiday to date was to Phuket, Thailand. We spent 2 weeks there and did some amazing things from white water rafting, ziplining & snorkelling to seeing elephants & monkeys and relaxing on the beach. My favourite day however was when we went to different islands such as Phi Phi, Maya Bay, James Bond Island and Monkey Beach, seeing them in person instead of in pictures was simply breathtaking and something that you have to see for yourself! From the people, the culture, the food to the diversity of things to do there it has to be my favourite place and will be hard to beat.

My travel bucket list includes Iceland, Australia, South Africa, Bali, Dubai and America and one that I’ll hopefully be ticking off this year is Budapest.

The support from O’Leary travel is something that I’ve admired since I started here and one of the reasons I love it here. When starting any new job it can be challenging but the team here have been so supportive and helpful just as they are with every customer. We’re here for you before, during & after you travel.

Although I’ve only been here 5 months, I’ve learned so much in that space of time. I love finding and sending people on holidays, whether it’s a city break or summer sun I’ll help you create the perfect holiday!
