Aeneas O'Hara

Following a wonderful childhood in the remote highlands of Scotland and the west of Ireland, I have travelled to over 40 countries, lived in some of the biggest cities in the world and am fluent in French and Spanish. Most recently I spent 3 fantastic years in New York working in FinTech where I took every opportunity to travel through the USA and have visited 25 states so far. I created 'Ireland Scotland Travel' to share some of my favourite places in Ireland, Scotland, England and Wales.

I do not have a pre-conceived idea of what your trip should be. It all starts with a conversation. From listening to you we then plan your perfect itinerary offering a truly tailor-made vacation.

We are here to help you design your vacation whether it's your bucket list trip, honeymoon, birthday celebration or family reunion.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"We specialize in luxury travel and all our trips are tailor made so we cater to all tastes and needs. We really enjoy planning trips from scratch for people and have a great knowledge and a lot of contacts in the wild Highlands of Scotland and across Ireland. We can arrange for a private food or distillery tour, a private kayaking trip to uninhabited islands or a private tour of a closed castle. What we specialize in is listening to our customers and planning completely custom made trips to Scotland. "

How did you get involved in travel?

"For the past 20 years I’ve been the go-to expert for friends, clients and colleagues sharing the best places for them to visit on their travels. Coming from a family of travel entrepreneurs and being passionate about exploring new places, it has long been a dream of mine to set up a travel company focussed on the best that these islands have to offer. "

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"One thing I love when travelling, is getting to visit out of the way places with a local person who can tell me the stories and show me the sites that I would not find on my own.

Recently on the west coast of Scotland I took a small boat to a remote Scottish island where the official population is 2 people. On the way there we had dolphins swimming next to the boat, heard the stories of people who lived on the island and what life was like back in the day. On arrival, we had a luxurious freshly caught seafood lunch on the boat and then worked it off with a hike around the beautiful island. It was such a great experience and a very memorable day."
