Siobhan Byrne Learat

October 12, 2020

This Ireland and United Kingdom specialist is the CEO and Founder of luxury travel design company Adams & Butler. She knows the right people all over the region, and can introduce clients to locals of all stripes—from authors and athletes to farmers and specialty food producers, and even aristocrats, many of whom are happy to host for dinner or a stay. 

Learat is based primarily in Dublin, but she also has a home in Kenya, and does double duty as an advisor for that country, as well as Tanzania, Zimbabwe, Rwanda, and beyond. And in every itinerary she plans, Learat emphasizes experiencing a destination consciously and responsibly. “Clients don’t want to simply see and do, but rather feel and engage with real people at all levels,” she says. “We work with a lot of one-man-band-type local suppliers and guides. It adds a vibrancy to the trip.”

"My husband and I worked with Siobhan to plan our recent trip to Ireland. When the time came for our departure to Dublin, we ran into major obstacles with our airline reservations, which influenced many of the activities we had planned with Siobhan (including our hotel stay, driver-guide, and other pre-booked activities). She was on emergency call, and after our tearful chat, she addressed every concern. She cheerfully rearranged and kept our itinerary as close to our original scheduling, and did it with such efficiency that our trip proceeded with no hiccups. All events, hotels, and our wonderful driver guide made for a lovely trip. Adams and Butler checked on us and made sure that our travel experience was five-star. Siobhan is a superb travel agent!" - Meg Bartlett
