Hi, my name is Stephanie and welcome to taking your first step of having your own personal Travel Counsellor.
I live in Ballynahinch Co. Down, with my husband Gary and my two boys, Joel (11) and Alex (9).
I have been in travel for 22 years and travel is my passion, I love the buzz and excitement of going on holiday. Throughout my career I have worked for two of the top agencies in Northern Ireland, I have decided to join Travel Counsellors because I have the knowledge and experience to be able to provide you with a high level of customer service.
I have travelled extensively throughout Europe, America and the Caribbean, Indian Ocean and the Far East on family holidays. I have been fortunate enough to ski in Europe and the US, play golf in Mauritius and Spain and even a flotilla holiday in Turkey.
If you want to relax by the pool or if you prefer the beach, if you want an adventure holiday to a sporty holiday like scuba diving, skiing, golfing or sailing. I can help you plan your Round the World trip or if you want to cruise, I have the knowledge, experience and ideas to send you on your dream holiday every time.
In the introduction above I am telling you about myself, but the travel consultancy service I provide is all about ‘YOU’ and your holiday requirements.
Don’t spend hours and hours on the internet, I can provide you with competitive prices and a high level of customer service that you won’t receive booking online… call me at a time that is convenient for you, even outside of normal office hours.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Seamless…a complete joy to do business with, from the initial enquiry through to landing back in the UK after ten days spent in the amazing resort of Calpe, everything ran like clockwork. Steph co-ordinated flights from Belfast and Manchester, both to...

Wow. I have been to a few places around the world, but I have never been to one from my bucket list before! Since I started in travel a few too many years ago, I came across a picture in a brochure with two mountains and a gorgeous beach. At that point I said to myself "I am going to go there someday!" Well, I have just returned, and I sat in awe the whole time. That place is St Lucia and the mountains are called "Pitons". In St Lucia, there was definitely a Caribbean vibe, which I loved. I was...

I had the privilege of visiting the island of Barbados in the Caribbean in June 2013. It’s hard to know where to start! The first thing that grabbed me was the friendliness of the local people as they were so helpful and lovely wherever I went. It is safe to go out and go for a walk. In particular, I went to Oistens Fish Market which is an absolute must on a Friday or Saturday night. Go along and have some local freshly caught fish with a beer, and dance (or if you don’t fancy dancing) just watch...

Florida here we come in the cold month of February, the kids were off school for 8 days so 12 days of winter sunshine really appealed. We set off to Dublin airport with grandparents, parents, auntie and uncle and a 15 year old all in tow. We flew with Aer Lingus from Dublin and it was a long flight, but we found it to be very comfortable. There are lots of entertainment options on the personal TV monitors in the back of the seats, so you can make your own choices and not have toewatch what the kids want the...
