Ruth Walsh – International Travel Advisor & Independent Contractor
“Travel can enrich us – one does not have to go far or to spend lavishly but with the appropriate advice it is life changing”.
Ruth’s first overseas trip was “an odyssey” when she travelled around the world as a young teen with her family. Buying a car and travelling through Germany and spending Christmas European style in a pension in Vienna were a couple of highlights and she believes this trip influenced her life in so many ways . It has given Ruth a passion for getting to the cultural heart of a destination. “Thank you mum and dad for dragging me off to the opera in Vienna! I now adore music and it’s one of the things I always try to fit in on a trip for myself and my clients.”
Ruth has specialised in travel to Italy for many years, and she personally took small groups into hilltop regions for culinary and art explorations. She still travels to Italy regularly and has many favourite experiences that she likes to share with her clients!
Ruth’s new areas of expertise are Spain and Portugal – fabulous, culturally rich destinations that she believes reward the traveller!
Ruth regularly travels to seek out special spots, be they hotels, restaurants, galleries and lesser known areas in the famous cities throughout Europe, and she work hard at discovering the less traveled parts.
Ruth has two university post-graduate degrees and for her it is of importance to research and apply this to her work in the travel industry.
If as Shakespeare says “..music is the food of life..” so to music, food and art in the collective travel experience..
Ruth would be delighted to assist you.

“Hi Ruth. I just wanted to say what a lovely trip we had and how well organised it was. All of the transfers were either waiting for us or arrived at the appointed time. It was lovely to arrive in London and see the groceries that were ordered as we were extremely hungry after the long flight. Also the apartment in Pimlico was fantastic. For us, the highlight was Crete and in retrospect we should have stayed longer as there was so much to see and do. Thanks for all your efforts”.
