Hi I'm Kate, the face behind North & Leisure. I'm a tour operator, and I work with travelers and travel advisors to create fomo-free vacays to Ireland and Scotland. Creating your itinerary is my favorite part. The ultimate puzzle, figuring out what will be best for you. I'm definitely on team email > calls.
my dream clients say that I am...
knowledgable, passionate, & efficient
I make a splash in the following areas:
thoughtful and personalized planning
the things you don't know to ask for
“Kate is my dream tour operator!
I am always saying how badly I wish she existed for every destination! She makes selling Scotland and Ireland so simple!"
- HEATHER C., Heather Christopher Travel
"We had a fantastic time in Ireland and can't wait to go back!!
Hands down the highlight was our biking day- the guide we had, John, was stellar in every respect. He was a tour guide, historian, archaeologist, expert biker, and a local and we learned a ton from him. We found the bike shop people very friendly and also enjoyed exploring Clifden for a bit after our ride."
- Erin C., TRAVELED TO IRELAND
"We LOVED Glendalough-- both of us were wishing we'd spent a day there instead of half a day
I loved the horseback riding too-- I'd love to do a horseback riding trek in Ireland! Adding that to my bucket list ;-) Honestly, we felt well taken care of and very few questions arose. We wish you covered more areas so we could use you for our next trip!"
- Holly B., TRAVELED TO IRELAND
"The Team at North & Leisure have been great to work with. I have increased my Ireland business because I know when I sell it, the clients will come back very happy. When I have a prospect for Ireland, I simply sketch out the dates and interests, and Kate does the rest. The proposals are professional and I can forward them directly to the client. Once it is sold, Kate takes over and sees that every details is taken care of. She will add whatever commission or service fees you want, which is a bonus. She saves us time and makes us look good. I wish there was a North & Leisure for every destination I sell!"

Take a dreamy vacation to Ireland. Lush green landscapes. Castles. Rich history. Coastal views. Farm to table food. Authentic experiences. Distilleries. It's the perfect place for a European vacation.
Getaway from it all in Scotland. Rugged countryside. Whisky tastings. Search for Nessie. Ancient history. Gorgeous highlands. Vibrant culture. Pairs well with Ireland.
