1) Favorite destination?
Killarney. There is so much to do and see in the southwest and Killarney is such a cute, quaint town that it just makes for the perfect spot to stay the night or for a few nights!
2) Favorite type of Tenon trip?
I think our Hoppers are perfect for people not comfortable with driving, but want to venture out and explore different areas in Ireland and not just stay in one place. It’s a very unique experience that offers you more flexibility than an escorted tour and no other Ireland or UK company offers this option which is crazy to me.
3) Curveball – Favorite book?
The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein. I love dogs!
4) Favorite part of traveling?
Finding hidden areas/gems that might not be apparent to you at first, but once you start talking to locals and getting suggestions, you suddenly feel like you are a part of a secret club. I really enjoy walking around and just getting lost.
5) Have you made any goof-ups on the job or while traveling?
I have and still do pretty much mispronounce every Irish word. “Quay” is pronounced like “Kee”…c’mon!
