Imelda McCarthy - Travel Counsellors


My name is Imelda, your Personal Travel Counsellor. I live in Midleton, East Cork.

My roles over 30 years in travel have included Sales and Customer Service and I pride myself on providing a professional, unbiased, and confidential service. I am passionate about travel, and I love to create bespoke itineraries, whether it is a honeymoon, a family holiday or that once-in-a-lifetime trip. I can assist with flights, city breaks, sun holidays, skiing, camping and cruises. I am there for you from your initial inquiry, throughout your holiday, right until you have printed those holiday snaps.

I have been lucky enough to visit many destinations over the years including Australia, USA, Mexico, Peru, Africa, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Malaysia, Bali, Maldives, Sri Lanka, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Tanzania, South Africa, Turkey and many destinations in Europe, including France, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Hungary, Czech Republic, Cyprus and Greece.

Southeast Asia is a personal favourite of mine. I have travelled extensively in this area and worked as a destination specialist for this region for 14 years. I would be happy to share my first-hand knowledge of this unique and exciting part of the world. Whether it is to spend a night on a traditional Vietnamese junk boat on Halong Bay, see the sun rise over Angkor Wat Cambodia, get up close to elephants in Thailand, or participate in an alms giving ceremony at dawn in Luang Prabang Laos, I can help make that trip extra special for you.

Being a Travel Counsellor allows me access to award winning technology and a direct connection to thousands of suppliers, enabling me to offer holidays at very competitive prices. Working with all the major airlines, tour operators, cruise & car hire companies, I can offer you an excellent range of choice that cannot be matched in a travel agency or online.

Travel Counsellors is licensed and bonded in Ireland giving you that peace of mind knowing that you are financially protected.

As I work from home, I am available outside normal office hours, at a time that suits you, including evenings and weekends. Please feel free to give me a call as I am more than happy to help you choose the perfect holiday destination.
