Running from 10-15 June 2019, Tracing Your Irish Ancestors will offer a brand new programme which will appeal to both the dedicated family historian and those who may wish to spend more time taking in the spectacular scenery and historical sites.

For those of you wishing to enjoy the enchanting landscape and historic sites of their ancestors we have also devised new tours this year which will include a guided tour of both Knowth and Newgrange (visit confirmed) passage tombs at Bru na Boinne; a tour of south Antrim including a trip to Carrickfergus Castle, one of the best preserved medieval structures in all of Ireland; a visit to Ireland's only accessible rope-bridge at Carrick-a-rede; a visit to Barons Court, the finest private home in Ireland; as well as the Hill of the O’Neills – the ancient capital of Ulster!

Our conference is the perfect combination of work and pleasure, offering an engaging and entertaining mix of research in the archives with the help of the Foundation’s experienced genealogists, talks from acknowledged experts and a variety of tours, all of which make for a memorable experience.
