Luxury, private 3 day/2 night tour to trace your Irish roots
Do you think your family tree's branches reach all the way to the Emerald Isle? Then this Genealogy Tour is for you! The only such tour being offered, you'll trace YOUR Irish history & ancestors while exploring this truly spectacular region. Depending on what familial information you may already have and how deep your roots reach, we'll trace your family history throughout Ireland. You choose the number of days, a minimum of three is suggested, and provide all the information you can provide after booking but well before arrival. I will take your provided family history and conduct my own research, using local resources in order to craft a truly one-of-a-kind tour experience. Whether your family has roots in the area, or you only feel in your heart a magical connection to this magnificent land, on this Genealogy Tour it will be "Your Tour - Your Trail"™ & the memories will last a lifetime. Join me!
The posted tour price is based upon having three days/two nights based in Killarney or beyond , however, the exact itinerary will rely heavily on the amount of days chosen to tour and the ability to trace your ancestry. Of course, if between your own research and my local knowledge, we are able to confirm direct links with the area I will be able to craft a tour like no other.
If your family farmed the land, we might locate the exact lands and gaze upon them in the very same locations your ancestors stood. If we can't locate the exact location, perhaps we visit a local farm in the area for a hands on day-in-the-life experience. Perhaps your relatives were musicians or artists? If so, we'll trace their paths and enjoy food and song along the way.
No matter how much, or how little, you may already know about your Irish roots, this Genealogy Tour is for the Irish at heart.

There is a saying "We can plan all we like, but we cannot schedule anything." And so while weather may always be an issue for your Irish adventure planning, it is my ability to be flexible which allows me to ensure your tours are impacted as little as possible.
Duration: 3 days
Traffic & weather can impact an Ireland day tour no matter the season, but flexibility and having an experienced, private guide/driver behind the wheel allows you to enjoy the day no matter the weather or the traffic conditions on the road.
