Find of the month February- Bangor Erris Murphy family
Adventure of a lifetime!
Five stars aren’t enough stars to rate what a tremendous experience this was for me to be able to walk in the house where my ancestors lived. Sean and Ian were a joy to be with on the long journey from Dublin to Cloontakilla in County Mayo where my ancestors lived. Their passion for genealogy and knowledge of Irish history is second to none. This was truly an adventure of a lifetime for me. If you want to walk in the footsteps of your ancestors, look no further than My Ireland Family Heritage to help you achieve this goal.
Find of the month March- Dr. and Mrs. Albert G. Roberts
The tour we took with Sean and Ian was, simply put, one of the best travel experiences we have ever had! The time, preparation and effort they put into planning our tour was much appreciated; as was the fact that they were as excited as we were to learn about our family’s historical roots! Sean, Aisling and Ian are an extraordinary team! They have clearly developed a wonderful way to provide people with unique opportunities that build family ties and create long-lasting memories! We very highly recommended My Ireland Heritage!
The Parks family originated in the Sligo area in fact they were big Land owners in Drumcliff after the Cromwellian wars of 1649-53. Arlene came to My Ireland Heritage to find her relations .We pride ourselves on working with facts only and once the project was developed it was found that her Family of Parks were from the Bunnyconlain /Emlymoran areas but through marriage with the Stephens family were found in Kilglass close by. The Original House was still there one of the interesting items were try as we might we could not find the Stephens/Parks in four different Graveyards until we unravelled a connection of burial with the Conway Family.
Arlene remembered a very old family story she told to Sean about a death on a Farm in Kilglass which was told many times in America by her family. Astoundingly this story was told by a local neighbour at Kilglass when Arlene met him for the very first time , that in fact it was death by a Bull reassuring Arlene that the Old stories are maybe more factual than what we think they are.

My Ireland Heritage Tours is Amazing
Our experience with My Ireland Heritage Tours was amazing!! Better than we could have hoped for. We had done much genealogy research before arriving to Ireland but without Sean, Ian, Aisling and their research staff our journey to find our Irish roots would have been lacking. With their help we were able to visit many sites where our ancestors lived. We visited their burial sites and places where they were baptized and married. Amazingly Sean arranged tea with our Irish cousins. My mom turned 82 while we were in Ireland and she was so delighted. My Ireland Heritage Tours turned a wonderful trip into the trip of a life time. Thank you!!
