With a degree in Marketing, specialising in all things digital, Orla is passionate about connecting and promoting the people, places and experiences Ireland has to offer. First being exposed to the hospitality and tourism industry whilst spending time working in The Hamptons, New York, this in turn ignited Orla’s decision to pursue a career in tourism.
“Growing up in the “Town of the Knights- Balrothery” north of Dublin's City centre; coastal scenery, historic heritage and a sense of community can be found in abundance. From sunrise swims in my local beach of Skerries, cross-country running in Argillan Demesne, to meeting friends for brunch in local eateries, there is always something new to explore.
Despite being an avid Dublin GAA supporter, some of my fondest memories in Ireland are spent outside of the capital, from the breath-taking beaches of Kerry to exploring new hiking trails in Wicklow.
Further afield, having visited many of the major states in the US, bustling cities of Europe and the bright lights of Dubai, there is still however no place like home — Ireland. I am so proud to be working with an organisation that supports and promotes Ireland on an international stage.”
