Irish Family History Centre Tours and Activities

Irish Family History Centre
If you’re curious about your Irish background, head over to the Irish Family History Centre for an exciting way to look for your ancestors and discover new strands of your unique family story. Part of EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum, the center can be an illuminating place to spend a few hours during your trip to Dublin.

The Basics
At the Irish Family History Centre, you can access a large amount of digitized Irish family history information: birth, marriage, and death records; census records; parish records; travel and migration records; and more. Genealogy experts are also on hand to help out. A short consultation is included in the price of admission; for an additional fee, you can book a more in-depth consultation with a genealogist.

Visit only the center, or purchase a combination ticket that includes entrance to EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum.
