Who Am I?


I'm an award-winning travel writer & broadcaster

I've been writing about travel for over 20 years. I've written dozens of guidebooks for Lonely Planet and contributed oodles of travel pieces to a host of newspapers and magazines. I've been a travel editor, at Fodor's and the Irish Times.

I've been a radio presenter and broadcaster since 2003, when I started a travel slot on George Hook's Right Hook drive-time show on Newstalk 106-108 FM in Dublin. 

From 2006 to 2014 I presented Culture Shock - Newstalk's arts & culture programme - before moving to RTE Radio 1, where I now present Inside Culture. I'm also the travel expert on the station's flagship mid-morning programme, Today With Sean O'Rourke 

And, just to round out the week, I'm also the co-host of Golf Weekly, one of the best-known golf podcasts around.
