I have visited Ireland 50 times since 1973 and know the Emerald Isle like the back of my hand. That`s why everyone calls me the “Ireland Expert”. Besides writing a book about Ireland called “IRELAND DREAM TRIP” - formerly "BEST LITTLE GUIDE TO IRELAND" - (which I update yearly and is now in its 20th edition) I also plan customized itineraries to Ireland for my clients. I really enjoy helping others plan their trips to the Emerald Isle and I love answering thousands of questions at various travel forums dedicated to Ireland. I have a forum at`ve produced a web site to help people planning a trip to Ireland.

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

I hope to plan many more trips to Ireland for those who need my advice. Since I do consultations on a personal one-to-one basis, I only have a limited amount of time available for new clients but I hope to free up more time in the future so that I can accept more clients every year. I also enjoy learning more about Ireland at every opportunity.

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

Ireland is a small island about 300 miles long and 150 miles wide, located in northwest Europe. Two separate countries share the island--the Republic of Ireland, which takes up about five-sixths of the Emerald Isle and Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom.
