Michael Bowe


I am the 4th generation to continue living  the dream with Bowe Travel which started back in 1902 by my Great Grandfather (Michael Bowe also).

I am lucky cause travel has never been considered work as I love what I do and I have seen the world as a result.

I have been lucky enough to cruise the Caribbean, Safaris in South Africa, Kenya, Sri Lanka, seen the Taj Mahal in India, travelled all over Asia, Europe and America and I did it all in the name of work (well maybe not all the time!!!!!)

I love making your dreams become a reality and lets hope we have some fun along the way.

have kids WILL travel...I think probably best describes me!  I LOVE to travel...the world is a very big place and I intend to see as much of it as humanly possible.  So as a mum of 4 " waiting until they're old enough..." doesn't really work for me! 

We travel as much as we possibly can and as far as we possibly can!  We have done everything from camping to cruising and love them all equally! 

I honestly have far too many "favourite" places for different reasons to name just one!  Experiential travel with children is always special be it Lapland, Disney or Safaris there is something very special in seeing these wonders through their eyes!

Catherine Ryan

Travel Consultant

I’ve worked in travel since 1994 with the exception of a few years  to work abroad.

I am a big fan of short breaks and I have ticked a few off my bucket list. Some of my favourites spots have been Dubrovnik, Toronto, New York, Sorrento and more recently Reykjavik with a few more planned for the future!  

I love to pack in as much as I can experiencing beautiful  scenery, culture, history and food.

Please do not hesitate to contact me and I will be happy to help arrange your next holiday.
