My name is Katharine and I am a travel counsellor based in Dublin. I started my career in the travel industry in Belfast over 11 years ago working for an award-winning travel agency and am now based in the vibrant city of Dublin.

After university, I was really bitten by the travel bug. I embarked on a trip around the World which took me to South Africa, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, the Cook Islands and North America.

Working in the Travel Industry for over a decade has allowed me to travel extensively, from experiencing the luxurious Belmond Hiram Bingham train from Cusco to Machu Picchu, seeing the Taj Mahal at sunrise and taking the Toy Train to Shimla in the Northern Himalayas. As well as sleeping in a floating tent over a lake in Koh Sok National Park in Thailand to staying in a beautiful over water villa in the Maldives. Most recently I embarked on a cruise to Alaska and travelled from Bangkok to Singapore on the luxurious Eastern & Oriental Express, amazing!

It’s hard to pick a favourite place as everywhere has something so different to offer. I love the variety that South Africa has to offer, from cities to beaches to winelands to safaris and more. South East Asia is another firm favourite, having travelled extensively around Thailand, Vietnam, Laos, Malaysia and Singapore. Having travelled all over Australia and New Zealand I can help you plan the trip of a lifetime to one, or both, of these incredible countries.

My considerable experience of First & Business Class airline products, luxury resorts and hotels, cruise lines and unique and tailormade luxury tours will help me put together your perfect travel experience, whatever the occasion.

As a professional Travel Counsellor it is my priority to make your travel plans as stress free and enjoyable as possible, from start to finish!

Thank you for reading and I hope to hear from you soon!

Customer Story 2

10 is not a high enough number to rate Katharine's service, 100% is better. I have spoken to a lot of my friends and rated her service as PERFECT.

Customer Story 3

Katharine was fantastic in organising a very last minute river cruise in New York for myself and two others and even went so far as linking our booking with other friends who were already booked on the same cruise so we would be sat together whilst dining. And when the tour operator cancelled the cruise the day before it was due to take place Katharine went above and beyond and called me in New York to inform me and advise about refunds. I really appreciated the personal touch and friendliness Katharine showed in all my interactions with her. I will definitely book again with Katharine and highly recommend her to friends and family. She is an asset to Travel Counsellors!

Customer Story 5

Katharine was extremely helpful throughout my time organising my holiday. In particular, I had to change my destination and Katharine made me feel very relaxed about having to make this change. If a friend was looking for a travel agent to go through when booking a holiday I would have no hesitation in suggesting Katharine.

Family Luxury in Portugal

Katharine's blog, 10/10/2019

I was lucky enough recently to be invited to Portugal to visit the Martinhal hotels & Resorts on the Algarve, Lisbon and Cascais. They pride themselves on providing luxury family holidays with each hotel designed with families in mind.

The first two nights where spent at the Martinhal Sagres located within a protected natural park set back from a long stretch of beach – the setting is truly stunning with beautiful sunsets. This is not like any family resort I have been to before, oozing in elegance but the children love it! There is a huge variety of accommodation across...
