They asked and you said ‘yes’, congratulations to you both on your future journey together as a married couple.

The honeymoon is the beacon of light at the end of your “I dos” and deserves all the time you have to be enjoyed in a stress-free environment!

Hand-picked hotels and breath-taking vistas? Of course. Highest levels of service?

Naturally. Full financial protection? Absolutely.

My close relationships with our partners’ means every effort is made to arrange even the smallest requests. I know how precious a honeymoon is for you, I have the experience to give advice on the most incredible resorts.

So whether it’s stunning Indian Ocean horizons, delights of the Far East or exciting African Safari Adventure - I can arrange it.

For over 25 years, whether it’s for relaxation, entertainment, sightseeing, indulgence or cultural experiences, I craft perfect honeymoons by matching couples to one perfect destination/unique resort that fits their dreams, style, and budget.

Emer organised our honeymoon. We had some ideas when we first met her but she was able to find the perfect destination fitting in what we both were looking for. Her knowledge of travel meant we didn't need to do much research , she organised everything down to the flights, insurance , hotels and made the process so easy. I was so impressed with the professionalism of the team at McDermott travel and their efficiency. I would not hesitate to book any future travel with them.

Emer is unreal. She took the time to meet both of us after work when it suited us so she could get a sense of what we both liked and wanted from our honeymoon. She talked us through different ideas and then took the time to put together 2 packages for us to choose from. We chose one but still changed some details on it such as having a longer stay in Sydney. Nothing was hassle for Emer - she is such a pleasant person and gets enjoyment from listening to what you want and then planning the ideal trip for you Nothing is rushed as she makes sure she researches everything before putting the package together - the best package to suit us. She gave us her contact details in case anything went wrong while we were away - this gave us a sense of security as we knew we would not be left stranded. Emer sticks to your budget so it's good to have a figure for her to work with. We trusted her judgement 100% as she knew what she was talking about and had knowledge on both Australia and New Zealand. I would highly recommend Emer to any couple organizing a honeymoon or even a normal holiday as she takes the stress out of planning it. All we had to do was pay up and then relax and enjoy.

Kay and co. were a pleasure to deal with from start to finish. Kay recommended fabulous locations and hotels for us in Dubai and Abu Dhabi with lots of helpful tips and advice. We had a fantastic honeymoon and adored the hotels Kay suggested. Everything on honeymoon went seamlessly from flights, hotels, transfers, vegetarian meals, etc. I'll certainly be booking future holidays with McDermotts.

I could not recommend Bronagh & the girls at Mc Dermott travel highly after the Perfect Honeymoon they organised for us. I genuinely could not have planned it as perfect myself. We had 2weeks in thailand& 5nights in the maldives. It was a dream honeymoon. The location was spot on, exactly what we had wanted to suit us and the resort in the maldives was out of this world. There was no hassle or stress and the girls were always at the end of the phone or email to answer any questions. Looking forward to booking our next holiday with the gang at Mc Dermotts Travel.

McDermott travel were absolutely fantastic. We had no idea what type of honeymoon we wanted or where we wanted to go but we sat down with Emer and after a little discussion she made some suggestions and we knew what we wanted. When she came back with the price we couldn't believe how reasonable it was. The honeymoon was fantastic, we loved every minute and cant wait to have the opportunity to do something like it again some day. Everything went smoothly and there wasn't one issue along the way. I would definitely recommend McDermott Travel.
