Family Roots Travel Announces Irish Ancestry and Heritage Tour

Mountlake Terrace, WA – April 4, 2011 – With the recent popularity of NBC’s Who Do You Think You Are? more and more people are getting involved in discovering their family history. Family Roots Travel helps them discover their heritage through travel. Now, with the announcement of the 2012 Irish Ancestry and Heritage tour, Family Roots Travel is helping people discover their Irish heritage.

The tour includes a visit to a replica of a famine ship, which millions emigrants in the mid-1800s would have used to get to America. Plus, a stop in Cobh, the port that most Irish emigrants left from, will make Irish emigration come alive for tour participants through the Cobh Heritage Center.

Tour participants will also be able to enjoy the beautiful Irish countryside with visits to the Ring of Kerry and the Cliffs of Moher. And they will be able to see history come alive at the Bunratty Castle and Folk Park, where they may learn more about how their ancestors lived by going through one of the many buildings of this living history park.

Finally, if people wish to get a closer eye on their ancestors, Family Roots Travel can arrange pre- and post-tour options.
