Meet the Team:

Brendan Barry - Managing Director

I have worked in the travel industry for over 30 years. In 1995, I opened East Cork Travel in Midleton. Thanks in no small way to our hard-working, loyal staff and the loyalty of the local community, our company has gone from strength to strength, and now encompasses East Cork Travel in Midleton and Discover Travel with Travel Experts in North Cork and West Waterford and of course our Specialist Longhaul & Cruise divisions.

With our combined knowledge of travel, our team have the interest and expertise to help with your travel arrangements, whether it’s summer or winter sun, worldwide destinations, camping, cruising, Disneyland Paris, escorted tours, city breaks, ski holidays, honeymoons/weddings abroad and much more – as well as travel insurance, car hire and visas. Even when you reach your destination, we’re on hand to help, with our 24-hour emergency contact number.

Clare O’Dwyer - Agency Sales & Long Haul Manager / Honeymoon Expert

I have over 25 years’ experience working in the trade, primarily in longhaul.  I have extensively travelled through Asia & South America. I specialise in longhaul so I have exclusive rates that I can pass on to you, my client. If you are looking for a honeymoon or to tick something off that bucket list, I am here to make it happen.
