Born in Dublin, Ireland, Deirdre joins the team at Ahipara Luxury Travel with a wealth of travel industry experience as well as significant personal travel experience.
Deirdre met her Kiwi husband in London and after travelling in Africa and Europe for several years, relocated to New Zealand where they raised their two children. The family moved to Ireland in 2005 and then returned to New Zealand again in 2011 to settle in stunning Central Otago.
Deirdre loves to visit new places and explore her environment. An avid reader, Deirdre can knock over a good book on a wet day but when the sun is shining she’ll be out on her bike or hiking the hills.
Her buoyant personality and attention to detail means she can put together the most complex itinerary with a smile and a laugh.
