What our clients say about this program:
"We booked our first trip to Ireland through Lynott in 1987 and were very pleased. I chose Lynott over others as your packages were a better value and much more affordable without sacrificing quality."
"It has been a few weeks since we returned from Scotland. Just wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful time and that the people were very friendly. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and thank you for your help. We plan on returning to Scotland in a few years."
--- James Brown (no, not that James Brown)
