Super-luxe castle hotels are all the rage, and Jonathan Epstein, who specializes in travel to the U.K. and Ireland, has connections at all the best ones — think Ashford Castle and Adare Manor. Epstein, who is based in Atlanta, has offices in Cork, Ireland, and outside London, and spends a significant amount of time traveling across the region and vetting new hotels. As a result, he knows which Michelin-starred restaurants to splurge on, which hotel rooms have the best views, which routes to take for the most scenic road trips, and the most atmospheric pubs for late-night brews. And thanks to his extensive Rolodex, he can easily organize meet and greets with brewers, restaurateurs, artists, craftsmen, chocolate makers, and more. For a once-in-a-lifetime excursion, ask Epstein to set up a private helicopter tour over Ireland’s iconic Cliffs of Moher, which rise as high as 700 feet above sea level.
