Celtic Quest Research Trips

Celtic Quest, LLC, has organized a unique research opportunity for serious and experienced researchers. 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, to help make your valuable research time in Ireland more productive, and to help you  determine which research facilities will be most beneficial, you can choose one of two pre-trip options. (1) Up to 3 hours of pre-trip telephone consultation (can be multiple sessions) with your trip director; or (2) your trip director will provide a written assessment of your research objectives.

Optional Evening Consultations

On certain evenings, you may schedule an appointment with your trip director to discuss and reevaluate your research objectives.

Need a Roommate to Reduce Costs?

We will assist you in finding a roommate if you would like to share a room with another researcher. Prices are per-person, Double occupancy, but Single rooms are available for a higher fee. Non-researching companions are also welcome. Please see the Rate Information page or the Registration Form for complete fee information.

Travel Arrangements

For attendee travel flexibility, participants are responsible for their own air and ground transportation. Most attendees take time before or after the research trip to tour or visit their ancestral homes.
