Package Description

Learn about your Irish roots and walk in the footsteps of your ancestors with the help of a professional genealogist and the flexible "Discover Your Roots" package. Start with a night at the 5-star Shelbourne Hotel in Dublin where you'll enjoy a one-hour consultation with the property's Genealogy Butler. Based on your own family's information, this experienced researcher will do preliminary legwork, draw up a personalized plan to help you navigate state and church records and work to set you in the right direction to actually find the place your relatives called home.

Whether your roots are in County Mayo, County Wexford or elsewhere on the Emerald Isle, you can then set a course for five nights, traveling through beautiful countryside in your rental car. Visit historic castles, archeological sites and such natural attractions as the Cliffs of Moher as you also experience firsthand the villages of family legend and maybe run into long lost relatives at a local pub. Your pre-paid bed & breakfast vouchers let you set your own pace. Staying in traditional Irish homesteads or working modern farms you'll experience the warmth and hospitality of the Irish people as you explore your own family history.
