Personal Tours of Ireland

Irish Tours customised for you

Lynchpin is not another large tour company which simply processes tourists, giving them little choice as regards their itineraries, accommodation and activities; nor is it so exclusive that only the mega-rich can afford to use its services.

No! Lynchpin provides a service where clients can have some say in the decision-making, and we firmly believe in the importance of speaking directly with clients during the planning phase.

With us you will see the real Ireland and avoid the tourist traps; you will travel roads that large tour coaches cannot; you will meet people who embody the best of Ireland.

Lowell and David know Ireland because that’s where they live; they know the roads of Ireland because they travel them regularly; they know the best of Ireland because they have experienced it.

There is no substitute for taking advantage of this first-hand knowledge of Ireland.

In a word fantastic. The trip Lowell and his team put together was flawless, from the golf, to the hotels and the bus & driver, there was nothing our group of 12 felt could have been improved. Our bus driver Bill Murray was excellent, very accommodating and nothing was too much trouble for him. The courses were spectacular, aided by weather that you can only dream of, Ardglass, County Louth, Castlerock, Portstewart and the icing on the cake, Royal Portrush. Each of the courses were also very welcoming and accommodating . What you get with Lynchpin is personal service and a face to the name. Lowell met us in Ardglass and again in Portrush, and his calm and experienced nature made the planning of the trip a joy, which manifested in the execution of the trip. I would have no hesitation recommending Lynchpin Travel to anyone planning to go to Ireland, particularly if this is your first trip as it was for many on our week of golf there.

I wanted to write and let you know what a grand time the four of us (The Tourons (ask Roddy)) had and to especially thank you for arranging for Roddy to be our driver. Roddy was more of a friend I travel companion than a driver. He was fun, knowledgeable and apparently knew how to handle our personalities.

The true star of Ireland is it's people. We felt welcome everywhere. A close second was the scenery, outstanding! We are already talking about a return trip (don't tell Roddy, he may not be recovered from us yet!). I am not ashamed to say that we are all suffering from withdrawals missing the Irish Pubs! Again thank you for all of your assistance.

Thanks so much for your hospitality last week. Jonny and I had a great time (I know Jonny has also been in touch, but just wanted to add a personal thank you for the book).

I think we learned more in 3 days than we could ever imagine and retaining that information is certainly a challenge, but we'll do our best. Both Northern Ireland and Donegal won us over and after hearing me wax lyrical, Vicky is keen to make the trip as soon as she can!

Thanks again for everything last week.

Thanks for checking in with us. Our overall trip experience was wonderful. We loved all the stops along the way and the hotels were a lot of fun. Sean did a fine job giving us Irish history and trivia along the route.

I must say that everyone truly had a great time and we an appreciated the hard work you put into our adventure. Thanks so much!

We are safely back home from a truly marvellous tour. First time to Ireland, but will not be the last. We found the island very welcoming and easy to navigate, especially with the excellent Drive and guide, Mike Hogan.

Everything was as expected or better and all came home happy with the experience.
