Does your family hail from a particular region of Ireland? If so, just let us know and we will design a tour around it. Did they set sail from a particular port? We can take you there. Are your ancestors at rest in a particular church grave yard which you would like to see? We can arrange for you to stop there. Tell us what you would like to see on your Genealogy Tour and we will make it happen.

We are here to help with everything - we can suggest the best locations to see and attractions to visit.

Specialist Genealogy Tour Operators

It is important to note that My Ireland Tour do not offer genealogy research services and we ourselves are not genealogists. We offer Ireland tours for parties of all shapes and sizes, many of which have a family connection with the Emerald Isle.

If you have researched your family's Irish heritage and would like to visit the places which your research has revealed, then you've come to the right place. However, if you're looking to undertake genealogical research while you're here in Ireland, or if you're looking for a tour which is guided by a genealogist, these are not services which we offer at the present time. Below are some genealogy specialist tour operators which you might consider.

A Portrait of your Family's Irish Past

More and more people are using the power of the internet to research their family tree, ancestry or genealogy. For many, what begins as short-term curiosity can soon become a deeply-rooted and enduring passion for discovering their family origins on a journey into the past, revealing mysterious characters and hidden secrets.

With instant access to newly-digitized records from around the world, online genealogy resources are making it easier than ever to trace your roots, wherever your family stems from. Such websites and organisations make extensive use of censuses and electoral rolls, birth/marriage/death records, military service records, immigration logs, school and church archives and more to paint an ever more vivid picture of where you and your ancestors come from.

The purpose of a genealogy tour of Ireland is to bring this picture to life for you and your family.
