"Samantha is amazing and passionate! You won't be disappointed!"

Joelle Dunphy Slattery



I approach every project as if it was my own.

I have lived half of my life in North America and half here in Europe and there are lots of extraordinary places in the world to live, and to visit. But for me, personally, there are not many places that have the magic of Ireland.

I love my job and I enjoy the satisfaction of seeing my clients’ plans and dreams come to life!


Hi, I am Samantha Harding and welcome to my website. I am a destination manager, living in the West of Ireland, on the Wild Atlantic Way. What that means is that I plan, coordinate and manage events for people who mainly live abroad and want to celebrate an important event here in Ireland.

I am living in one of the most beautiful areas of the world, and have the Cliffs of Moher, Lahinch, Liscannor, Ballyvaughan, Bunratty and the Burren all within a 40 minute drive!

Originally from North America I have lived and travelled extensively throughout Europe. Whilst on my travels I fell in love with the West of Ireland and this is where I am now based.

My background is in project management and finance which makes me ideally suited to organising and coordinating events both large and small. I have a Bachelor of Business degree which includes marketing and project management, as well as a Masters in Finance.

I love my job and I enjoy the satisfaction of seeing my clients’ plans and dreams come to life.

How I Work

Working with trusted and competent suppliers my aim is to make your event both distinctive and memorable. With my hard working team I will ensure that your event runs smoothly from start to finish.

Whether it is help planning an event at work, or a party for friends and family I would be pleased to hear from you.

Why the West of Ireland

The West of Ireland has some stunning and unique scenery – The Burren, the Cliffs of Moher, and the Wild Atlantic Way. It has beautiful manor houses and quaint villages including the very picturesque Adare Village. Not forgetting the fairy tale castles such as Dromoland, Bunratty Castle and Knappogue Castle.

My company, Samantha Harding Events was created to help people living abroad, take advantage of the amazing venues available to them in the West of Ireland.
