NEWTOWNMOUNTKENNEDY, Ireland - Oct. 1, 2019 - PRLog -- One award-winning tour company, whose reputation lies in whisking guests into the magic of off-the-beaten-track Ireland, hopes that visitors of Irish descent will make the effort to explore their particular pasts when visiting the Emerald Isle.

"Every Vagabond Small-Group Adventure Tour sheds light on who the Irish are today and where we've been," explains Robb Rankin, owner of Vagabond tours. "When it comes to the particulars of family histories and genealogies, while you're with us in Ireland, you may want to explore your own extended family ancestry."

See this Vagabond blog post related to Irish ancestry and roots:

Other suggestions Rankin has for using valuable digging time in Ireland wisely is to:

·         Meet up with Aoife Fitzgerald, the mother of "Vagaguide" Rhys. She is on tap to help sort out the inevitable obstacles when doing this digging.

·         Use free time when on Vagabond tours to meet up with local experts in towns where the tour stops. Meet-ups with local experts can be arranged in Kinsale, Dingle and Clifden, among many others.

·         Schedule time for serious research before and after the tour in such treasure troves as National Archives in Dublin (;

·         Connect the emigration dots while on such immersive tours as a 6 Day Ancient Ireland Tour ( (winner of Best Ireland's Ancient East Tourism Experience at the 2019 Irish Tourism Awards). This itinerary at €1,819 per person double visits:
-       Cobh: The last port of call for the Titanic and departure point for Famine emigrants.
-       Dunbrody Famine Ship in New Ross (Wexford): This is an exact replica of a 19th century Irish emigrant vessel.
