About Us

MAP Travel was established in 1997 and is owned and run by Marian Benton and Patricia Kenny both of whom have extensive knowledge and experience in the travel industry and are committed to providing a professional, personal service.

At MAP Travel we have established a reputation for organising high quality escorted group tours, pilgrimages, special interest tours and tailor-made itineraries to many of the world’s most fascinating regions. We are owner-managed and licensed and bonded for your financial security.

MAP Travel holidays, tours and pilgrimages range from the simple to the luxurious; from the relaxing to the adventurous, they are planned here by experts with a passion for travel and made real by our dedicated partners on the ground.

Escorted tours, river and ocean cruises are carefully selected by our team of travel professionals from hundreds of itineraries and providers. We hand pick each of our providers and partners to ensure that our guests get the very best experiences and service.


The Paradores of Spain

MAP Travel is the official and exclusive Representative in Ireland for the Paradores of Spain. These unique hotels are state owned castles, palaces, mansions and monasteries that have been patiently and authentically restored and offer a truly magical stay. Join us on one of our escorted Parador holidays for a relaxed and gentle introduction to them.


The Camino de Santiago

We offer the full range of Camino walks for individuals and groups. We pride ourselves on our flexibility and can plan your walk to suit the age, fitness level and budget of you or your group. We organise groups for parties of like-minded friends; charity fund-raisers, walking clubs and schools and we take care of everything – flights, accommodation, transfers on arrival, luggage transfers, directions and even pilgrim passports.

Let us do the planning and travel smart, enjoy the security of a licensed and bonded travel agent and almost 20 years of travel expertise.


We look forward to helping you plan your next trip!
