Infinite Ireland is a travel website that offers many avenues of help for those looking to make dreams into reality and touch down on the green, green grass of Ireland. It is run by Stephanie Chastain, an Ireland enthusiast such as myself. We both agree that if Ireland has been calling you to visit, you should go. It's probably easier and cheaper than you think. And Stephanie is here to help you.
|Meet Stephanie - Master Traveler behind Infinite Ireland|
Stephanie made her maiden voyage to Ireland in 2006 for her honeymoon. Ireland left its indelible, magical, enchanting mark and, like so many folks, she was smitten and stricken with a strong desire to return. And return she did. Over a decade since her first Irish jaunt, Stephanie has, along with her husband (and quite recently her infant son), rambled all over Ireland enough times to be considered an expert. In 2012 she began Infinite Ireland to help others realize their dreams and travel to Ireland. Until just recently, she was a study abroad advisor for Penn State, so she knows a thing or two about travel. And she's just taken the leap to working on Infinite Ireland full time (lucky us!). She shares so much of her expertise on the Infinite Ireland Blog detailing itinerary, budget, accommodation, travel tips, and overall inspiration. Her blog is one of the best tools out there to help someone plan an Irish trip. But if you need a little more than a helping hand, Stephanie offers a unique service for travelers - it's called Travel Coaching.

Travel Coaching is one-on-one travel planning help in half-hour or hour phone planning sessions (and unlimited email support until your departure). It's like getting a personal partner in planning to make sure you get the kind of trip you are dreaming about, first-hand advice for all your decisions, great and small. It's especially helpful for first-time visitors to plan out their itineraries and receive guidance on the nitty gritty logistics like where to go, how long to stay in one place, or how to rent a car. She specializes in planning full but not overwhelming days, with time for spontaneity and flexibility to add in activities as you travel. She loves sharing personal recommendations from her many travels. She can help you start from scratch with basic itinerary planning or, if you’re further along, you can talk specifics with recommendations for activities, restaurants and places to stay. It's a fun, exciting, and incredibly helpful way for you to get all your questions answered and to lay the foundation for your perfect trip. Learn more about Travel Coaching HERE.

Stephanie isn't a travel agent, she won't be booking hotels or tours for you but she can sure steer you toward breathtaking scenic drives, charming B & Bs, and delicious restaurants. She can be your personal Ireland guidebook (I'm sure she could write her very own) and take the overwhelming bits out of your journey by explaining how to rent a car in Ireland, what driving in Ireland is like, where to exchange money, how much you can fit into one trip. With Travel Coaching help, you can worry less and enjoy more. Travelers have left glowing reviews at Infinite Ireland of how Stephanie helped them turn their dreams into reality. So hop over to Infinite Ireland, sign up for the newsletter, or follow on Facebook. And start planning to make your dreams come true.
