Always going the extra mile (or 500 miles as he drives back and forth across the country to meet clients!) Crothúr is at the helm of Custom Ireland and is constantly working to forge and strengthen relationships both with our suppliers and our clients. Crothúr’s imagination knows no bounds, and he is a firm believer that EVERYTHING is possible. He’s full of creative ideas and is constantly focused on how to bring unique and exclusive experiences to our clients. From an operational perspective, the Custom Ireland team is pushed to think outside the box to make the seemingly impossible, possible!
It doesn't matter if she's foraging for seaweed along the Wild Atlantic Way, connect with clients, or developing marketing content for Crafted Ireland, Rebecca seizes every opportunity to approach all of life's tasks from an inspired and creative mindset. Based in Dallas, this Texas girl has an Irish heart. Don't let her southern drawl and her use of the words, "y'all" and "awesome" throw you off. She's been indoctrinated by the Irish way of life and can tell the story of Ireland in a way that only someone with true Irish magic in her heart can do. And then she'll hashtag it and take a selfie with it .
When Sara's not holding an owl, she's holding a lamb, or a piglet... or playing rugby, cycling, hiking or snowboarding. Sara's zest for life goes all the way up to 11, and she brings that same endless energy and enthusiasm to every itinerary she touches. As the Operations Manager, she'll oversee them all and that's good news for our clients as they can rest assured they are in good hands. Along with the owl... the lamb.. the rugby ball....
If her title sounds fancy, it's because it is. And no better candidate on our team to have a fancy title than Sandra. She was, after all, an Irish dancer, and if you've ever seen Irish dancing, then you know... this MUST be where the term "fancy footwork" first originated. But not only that, Sandra brings her experience in the luxury travel market to our team, and she scores big points with the high-end itineraries that she creates for our FIT and executive clients who are looking for exclusive and specialised travel services.
Niamh wears tiny leprechaun hats. This may seem strange at first thought, but once you get to know Niamh, you're pretty sure it's highly possible that she might just be a direct descendant. Don't let her height fool you. She's extremely witty, can spin a yarn like only the true Irish can, and she's awfully clever when it comes to managing the numbers. Perhaps she comes by it naturally with all of the gold her ancestors have been managing for centuries. Nonetheless, all who know her are certain of one thing: she, herself, is definitely the gold and the rainbow.
We basically kidnapped Julia. She came to us a wee intern and we refused to let her go home at the end of her term. This could be because she bakes, and because she brings her baking to the office. But more importantly, she's incredibly efficient and detail oriented, and uses very intimidating sounding German words with us to make sure that we've crossed all of the t's and dotted all of the i's on every programme. Just to give you an example of how great she is to work with... our clients love her, and they haven't even tasted her German Chocolate Cake.
Julie moved to Dublin from Colorado in June of 2017 to join the Custom Ireland team. She was our client first, and while working with us on several U.S. programmes, she eventually brought her toothbrush over, then a pair of pajamas, then an extra set of clothes; and before you knew it, she had just moved right in. It really is easier now! With more than 25 years of progressively responsible, diverse MICE industry planning and execution experience, she not only fits right in, but she's makes a big impact on the detail we deliver in our quality service. And she's even teaching us a thing or two.
Siobhan is always wrangling some kind of group. Whether it’s her 3 kids, her 2 dogs or the Irish rugby team…wait… let’s try that again…whether it’s her 3 kids, her 2 dogs or hosting her friends for the Six Nations Championship, she never misses a beat (or a game)! She brings those same wrangling skills to the office and keeps all of the details in line on every programme or trip that she manages. And it’s her passion, dedication and loyalty to any project that ensure success for the whole team.
