  • I really recommend a visit to this centre. The staff are particularly helpful and knowledgeable on Irish family history/searching matters. I would suggest however, that you undertake a little research yourself, before you leave home. This will assist your researcher by really focusing on your ancestors/family, eliminating the need to troll through unnecessary records, and therefore giving you flexibility with your budget. Fees are reasonable, but come in half hour blocks. I found that I needed more time than that. I have some experience in searching archives.
  • I brought my mother up to the Irish Family History Centre as a Birthday activity. She has always been interested in her family history and I thought this would be a nice afternoon for us to spend together. We spent an afternoon in the Irish Family History Centre working with Genealogist, Patrick Roycroft. It was a fantastic experience and we found out so much about our family history that we never expected to uncover. It was a pleasure to work with Patrick who was full of knowledge and genuinely as excited as we were to connect the dots and retrace so many layers of our family from over the years. We found the consultation so useful that we doubled our time. Patrick was very efficient, wasted no time and gave us the information we needed to continue exploring our family's past after our visit. We have every intention of going up again to explore other parts of our family tree as on our last visit we gained information that we never would have expected to come across or even known to look for. We wouldn't have been as successful on our own and it most certainly helped to speed up the process! We would highly recommend a visit to this fantastic resource centre. Looking forward to our next visit.
