Sample Private Chauffeur Driven Ancestry Tour Itinerary

Cead Mile Failte, Heaney-McDonagh Family! One hundred thousand welcomes! Upon clearing customs, you will be met by your Irish Tour Director and escorted to your vehicle. We make the relatively short drive to Co. Longford, the home county of your ancestors. Longford is a tranquil and mainly low-lying county. Cairn Hill, referred to affectionately by locals as Corn Hill, is the highest point of the county, standing at 916 feet. Situated in the basin of the River Shannon and the upper catchment area of the River Erne, Longford is ideally located in the heart of the Lake-lands region. The true beauty of Co. Longford lies in its rural charm, the hospitality of its people and the breath-taking views of its quiet countryside of farmland, lakes, bogs and the occasional low hill.
