River Cruise, Ireland & European Luxury Specialist

River Cruise in Europe - 2022
River Cruise in Europe - 2022

I’ve had a passion for traveling for as long as I can remember, and I am always excited when planning a new journey. I flew for the first time when I was eight years old during a trip to Ireland with my family, to visit my mother's old homestead. Today, I am always out and about, going somewhere both near and far. 

Vacation planning can often be daunting for both first-timers as well as experienced travelers alike. I specialize in taking the stress out of planning so you can be prepared and excited for your trip at all times. 

My particular travel focus is on:

  • Luxury Travel 
  • Europe - with a real focus on Ireland in particular 
  • River Cruises in Europe
  • Alaska & Hawaii
  • Caribbean

I want every vacation for my clients to be rejuvenating and exhilarating, and I want to help you discover local activities and cultures that inspire you and your family. Whether you want to try yoga on the beach, enjoy a massage at your resort, or dive into the local art scene, I will help you cultivate your passions abroad so you return refreshed and excited for more!!!

Contact me today to start booking the vacation of your dreams!!!

Never a Worry When You Hire The Jet Set Brunette

Reviewed By Linda L - Great River NY | Traveled to Las Vegas ~ Nevada ~ USA
Eileen was great - she found the right hotels for me to stay at (budget-wise and distance-wise) from the convention I was attending in Las Vegas, I didn’t have to do any research on airfares or hotels - she did everything. All I had to do was pack. She also suggested she could get me transportation to and from the hotels and airports.

Amazing trip that I will never forget !

Reviewed By Debbie - Rock Hill, SC | Traveled to Alaska ~ USA
Where to start.... Eileen is amazing!
Our trip (30+ in the group) could have very well been a disaster. Cancelled two years in row due to Covid. So many arrangements made, cancelled, and then rearranged due to dates etc. Eileen was with us every step of the way. Outstanding communication, coordination, etc. COVID restrictions, requirements a nightmare but Eileen handled EVERYTHING! Above and beyond and took on so much of the stress and responsibility upon herself to make our trip great! She is the best!

Above all... I just love her spirit! So friendly and caring. I always felt like her top priority was ME. Thank you, Eileen, for everything you did to make our trip wonderful! I can't thank you enough.

We want to go back again!

Reviewed By Sandals Grenada - Oceanside, NY | Traveled to Grenada ~ Caribbean
My husband and I worked with Eileen Blum to book a long overdue honeymoon after postponing our wedding from December 2020 to December 2021! At first we weren't sure where to go since we wanted to visit a place we hadn't ever been. After talking with Eileen, she helped guide us and recommended Sandals Grenada. Prior to the trip she also made sure that we were up to speed on the ever changing Covid protocols that were still in place at the time. Sandals Grenada did not disappoint, it was the perfect mix of relaxation and adventures, which is what we were seeking. We even met a few couples there who we still communicate with. We are so grateful to have worked with Eileen during this time and that she told us about Grenada. We couldn't have asked for a better honeymoon! Hopefully one day we will go back and visit again. Eileen is the best of the best, you must book with her!

Eileen, of The Jet Set Brunette, was such a pleasure to work with. For our Girls Getaway, Eileen listened to all of our interests and needs for planning our trip. She was extremely helpful and so quick to respond to our many questions and concerns, especially as we are traveling with restrictions, due to covid, throughout the world. Eileen worked hard to give us the best vacation, and it showed! We were originally looking for an inexpensive hotel room, but Eileen was able to work her magic, and got us a room with pool/ocean view for just a few dollars more. It was great! She also sent us information on sightseeing tours and excursions, while we were on our trip. We will absolutely work with Eileen (The Jet Set Brunette) for our future vacations!
