Lee_TravelLee Travel, under Declan O’Connell, first opened its doors in June 1975 in Cook Street, then moved onto 34 Oliver Plunkett Street, before settling down in 23 Princes Street in the early 1980’s, then in 1998 we moved next door to where we are now in 24 Princes Street!

Our offices have 2 floors broken up into 5 different departments; Retail, Corporate, Cruises, Groups & lastly Honeymoons & Weddings Abroad!  Lee Travel is lucky enough to operate independently, this means to you that we arent biased to particular resorts / products or destinations……we will sell to you to match your needs, not ours!
