Ireland Genealogy Experience

What You'll Do

This three-day experience allows you to truly immerse yourself in your Irish heritage, and incorporate much more of your family heritage, sites and experiences. Discover your Irish roots with professional genealogist Irish Clann Connections, local traditions, culture, heritage, and experiences. Uncover the stories from your family tree as you take a mystery tour to find your Irish roots – 'Who Do You Think You Are '-style!

Relax as you taken the hidden gems, lush landscapes and breathe in the fresh air as you are taken on a journey around the Irish heartlands and experience the sights of your ancestors on a genealogical mystery tour, with details of your story revealed as we travel around the sites associated with your family tree. Enjoy meeting the locals, experiencing the cead mile failte (hundred thousand welcomes).

If your family come from Roscommon, Leitrim, Sligo, Longford, Westmeath, Offaly, Mayo or Galway, our genealogist will take you on a journey back through time. Our genealogist will carry out extensive research in advance of your trip and lead you through the places associated with your ancestors, revealing details along the way. Just like the TV show!

Meet our genealogist in Dublin, Shannon or Athlone and be taken on a mystery tour around your family tree. Our driver will bring you to different locations that form part of your family story, and our genealogist will weave the narrative around the documents that she has uncovered and give you an insight into the Ireland your ancestors left behind

Family homesteads, castles, famine ships, workhouses, graveyards, museums, stately homes, local people and cultural experiences combine to create a once in a lifetime genealogy and family history experience.

In the evenings, enjoy some traditional Irish storytelling, music, Ireland’s oldest pub, cosy open fires, and conversations with the locals.

This is a private group experience for 2 – 8 people.

Your Local Host:

Kirsty

My business came from our experiences of group travel in Ireland. We saw groups loading suitcases on to a bus at 6am, we saw groups spending hours on buses to be led to overcrowded sites to fulfil unrealistic itineraries. This is not a holiday and we knew it didn’t need to be like this. We are a family business and have over thirty years' experience in travel and tourism in Ireland.
