Irish Geneaology? You’ve filled in your family tree and you’ve seen the records online, but nothing quite beats the unforgettable feeling of coming home like seeing Ireland with your own eyes. You’ve traced the twists and turns of your family tree, you’ve tracked down records online. In fact, you've done everything you can possibly do from afar.

Now is the time to come home to the place where a new chapter begins.

Irish Genealogy isn’t just about finding out about the names connected to you and your loved ones. It's about discovering what your ancestors did, how they lived their lives, the impact they had in their local community – and how brave they were to bid farewell to these green lands all those years ago, often starting their lives over again. These bits of information are the last pieces of a puzzle that spans lifetimes. What started with sepia-toned photographs handed down from generation to generation and searching online records, ends on the island of Ireland with a place you can call home.

From tiny stone houses that perch on gorse-covered hills to red-brick terraces lining the streets of Ireland’s largest cities, everywhere comes with its own folklore, its own tales to tell. Your journey could take you anywhere – along the crashing coast of the Wild Atlantic Way, through the golden vales and ancient constructs of Ireland’s Ancient East, and towards the drama and savage beauty of the Causeway Coastal Route and Northern Ireland.

"We crossed over a small stone bridge, turning into a narrow rutted lane – and there it was. "GERRY BRITT COMING HOME
