Ancestral Voices provides a local historian to be your private chauffeur and to show you and your companions around Ireland. Relax and enjoy the scenery in the privacy and comfort of a six passenger Mercedes limousine (up to eight passengers on request).
Take the Hidden Heartlands day tour and explore sights around the Shannon River. This region has so much to offer the curious traveller, from military fortifications built to ward off Napoleon, to the burial place of St Brendan the Navigator who voyaged to America 1,000 years before Columbus.
Highlights include Clonmacnoise, a former monastic city and the burial place of kings, Birr Castle and Gardens, home of the famous Great Telescope and Ireland’s largest treehouse and the Tullamore Dew Visitor Centre where you can taste the famous Irish whiskey.
A visit to the Irish Workhouse Centre in Portumna will bring to life the plight of Ireland’s poor during the Great Famine. Alternatively, you can choose to escape the crowds in the unique habitat of Lough Boora or unwind beside the beauty of the tranquil River Shannon and its lakes.
Other tours include the Boyne Valley Day Tour (Newgrange, Slane, Monasterboice, the mystical Hill of Tara and Trim Castle) and the Wicklow Mountains Day Tour (Glendalough, Avoca and Powerscourt Gardens).
Ancestral Voices believes that every place and everybody has a story. Other services include family history research to help you discover the stories of your ancestors and take you where they once lived so you can walk in their footsteps.
