Expert travel writer:

Nicola Brady


Nicola has been a freelance travel writer for almost ten years, writing for publications like the Irish Independent, The Times, Conde Nast Traveler and more. Ireland aside, her writing tends to focus on food, soft adventure and wellness.

Specialist subjects


Originally from the UK, Nicola moved to Ireland after university and worked in the world of ecotourism before switching over to travel writing.

While specialising in her adopted home (Ireland), she also takes any opportunity to travel further afield, particularly if there’s a long-distance cycle or deserted beach to be found. She will go pretty much anywhere if there’s an excellent meal to be found at the end.

Her travels have taken her to the depths of the Ugandan rainforest in search of gorillas and to the bottom of the ocean in Sri Lanka, but Ireland always lures her back home.

On the bucket list

To see orcas in the wild, to cycle California’s Highway 1 and to finally visit Japan.
