About Irish Genealogy Tours
Professional Tourist Guides
At Irish genealogy tours we are professional tour guides who have a specialty in family history and research. Over the years we have found that guests coming to their homeland have done a mass of research on their family trees and mainly what they are requiring is local background knowledge. Putting flesh on the bones of their ancestors, the times, the places and the story of their lives. We use only the best guides who are accredited and tested. Their job is to ensure that anyone visiting their ancestral homeland has as an informative and enjoyable time as possible. We are based in Belfast so we specialize in Northern Ireland, but have connections across the whole island.
Full day guided tour
Spend a full day in the hands of a professional guide. Fill in the gaps, learn the background of the area, the highways and byways and make the connection back to the land of your forefathers.
Half day guided tour
If time is limited then this half day tour is an ideal way to go visit a site, a church, a grave. Our guides will make the day a living memory, bringing the past to life
Our guides can conduct local research, on the ground, to assist in filling in the gaps of your family tree. If you can't get to the locations yourself, let our guides do the work for you. Over the years we have photographed graves, knocked on the doors of ancestral homes, checked local libraries.... Please feel free to ask us for any assistance you feel would help move your research along. We can also advise. Price is per hour of research.
"People will not look forward to posterity who never look backward to their ancestors."
