There is no more personalised tour experience than an ancestry tour. As well as getting in the main attractions you will also get to places that no other tourists will get to see. These hidden gem moments can often offer deep insights into Ireland that other tourists following the main tourist trail will miss.



5. A great way of getting off the beaten path & away from the crowds...


Roadtrip in the west of Ireland

Often ancestry trails will take our driver guides to places that even they may never have visited. Taking the backroads to small villages and maybe even knocking on a local farmers door or two to ask for your long lost relatives is what makes ancestry trails extra special.



6. Support local enterprise off the main tourist trail...

7. Develop new long term, family relationships and make Ireland a home away from home..
