Find of The Month June 2018

Great Day of Family History and a Tour of the Ring of Kerry

Sean and Ian did a fantastic job on our tour! My wife bought this experience for me for my 50th birthday and it was well worth it. Sean and his team communicated with us throughout the process and it became clear that he had done quite a bit of research in preparation for our day together. I was impressed by Sean’s knowledge of Irish history as well as the effort he put into finding the pieces of my familiy’s history in Ireland, He met with us the night before our tour to go through his research and map out the day for us, I was able to pinpoint our ancestral home(s) as well as the churches where my ancestors would have attended, He brought us to our family grave sites, which was a very moving experience for me.

Sean made the entire experience very personal and he and Ian (his son in-law) were a delight to spend the day with. As an added bonus, Sean showed me how to find other pieces of my family history as well as doing a bit of extra research himself after the tour based on information we learned along the way. Last but not least the book, which contains the research he gathered, is a treasure my family will have for generations to come!

The Moriarity Family from the United States revisited all the old sites on this Trip. What was fantastic after we found the exact location of the House from 1820 the Family were able to enjoy the beautiful Ring of Kerry Tour as all in one occasion. The tour was completely customised and the Townland itself was one of the largest in Ireland. Townlands are not marked in Ireland and extremely difficult to find.
