Welcome to Tyrone Roots

Let me assist you to find out about your Irish Roots. If you plan to visit I can make your stay much more enjoyable. As well as offering a search service to discover your family background, I am able to offer a guiding package tailored to your individual interests. I am a native of Omagh, the County Town of Tyrone, and have been researching my own family history for over 40 years. I cover all of Ireland and have special knowledge of the 9 counties of Ulster.

I offer a bespoke service which will meet your needs when travelling to Ireland. I will advise on all aspects of your trip, including providing you with detailed information to enable you to make decisions to meet your interests.

Airport pick up can be arranged and using a local driver will take away any worries you may have about driving in Ireland. All types of accommodation can be arranged from luxury hotel, self catering and homely bed and breakfast.

Visits can be arranged to attractions of your choice, with a knowledgeable personal guide at hand. This includes Belfast where the Titanic was built, Ulster American Folk Park or archaeological sites such as New Grange (Bru na Boinne) can be included. L'Derry, with its famous walls and history, iwas the UK City of Culture in 2013  and is well worth a visit. Other attractions such as the Giants Causeway, Bushmills Distillery and the beaches and mountains of Donegal are within easy reach.
