Celtic Quest Research Trips

Celtic Quest, LLC, has organized a unique research opportunity for serious and experienced researchers. You may choose to participate in the Belfast trip or the Dublin trip, or combine them and research in both cities. Please note: To devote sufficient time to each researcher in Ireland, the trip is limited to the first 10 registrants who send their deposit.  It is required that you have at least identified the county of origin of your ancestor.

Research Objectives

Please take the time to prepare research objectives for review by the trip director. A Celtic Quest Research Objectives Form will be e-mailed to you shortly after you register. Please complete this form with as much detail as possible, including the sources for your information, and return the completed form via email. Then, before you take off for Ireland, your trip director will review and do an Assessment for up to two of your research goals (per trip) to help make your valuable research time in Ireland more productive. This will help you determine which research facilities you wish to use. Previous experience has shown that those who take advantage of this opportunity have the most research success.
