Ireland is dotted with farms amongst the famous green fields. A visit to Ireland is not complete without a personalised tour of a farm and meeting the local farmers who are guardians of the land. As well as getting a glimpse of rural Ireland and meeting the animals you will also learn of Ireland's ancient past and heritage from the locals who know it best.

Our ancestry trails always ass something a little special to a private tour of Ireland and we highly recommend researching a little to find a link such as a gravestone, church, parish or village.
