Irish Genealogical tours


I offer help to those who want to come to Ireland and to travel around and carry out research themselves.


Irish transport to irish ancestral sites - by kayak

I can arrange to transport and accompany an individual, a family or a small group on a bespoke genealogical tour.  These are designed to meet an individual or group requirement. They allow people who do not live in Ireland the chance to see where their ancestors lived, where they worshipped and went to school. They offer a real opportunity for people "to stand in their ancestor's shoes".  


I can prepare a special itinerary which can be specially tailored to allow visits to appropriate record offices to undertake research and visit places of family interest, such as homes, churches, schools and graveyards.

Irish pub for family history researchers and Genealogists to meet

It also allows the opportunity to combine a genealogical tour with visits to historical sites, heritage centres, places of interest or undertake research on location.  This enables visitors to enjoy the benefits of a guided genealogical tour aimed principally at discovering more about their Irish roots while enjoying the "craic" and soaking up some real Irish culture and hospitality.

Although this is inevitably a more expensive option, it allows busy people and those unfamiliar with Irish ways to trace their ancestry and enjoy an authentic Irish experience.

These Tours are designed to meet individual requirements and include car/minibus with a genealogist/driver, guidance and assistance.

Tours are priced individually on a per day basis plus expenses, which may include overnight accommodation costs.                            

The genealogical tours offered are not primarily sight-seeing tours and the genealogist/driver is not a tour guide. They are offered only to help people with their family history research.

If more a general tour of Ireland is required then please contact My Ireland Tour which is a family tour operator based in Cork at their website:
