In Ireland, the past is encompassed in the landscape. Ancient folklore, legendary tales and historical events abound in every corner of the country. Neolithic tombs rub shoulders with Celtic crosses and are situated mere miles from medieval castles and stately homes. Courtesy Tourism Ireland 

If you are planning a trip to Ireland to trace your family roots in Galway, we have put together our Genealogy Package at Glenlo Abbey Hotel Galway to help you on your way. 

Enjoy a luxury stay in Glenlo Abbey Hotel, which is steeped in history and with links to the ancestral 'Tribes of Galway City'. The tribes of Galway were 14 merchant families of Anglo-Norman descent who founded and dominated the city’s commercial, political, religious and social life from the 13th to 19th century. 

Our Genealogy Package includes a consultation with a representative of the The Galway Family History Society, experts in genealogy and with a wealth of knowledge and access to church records, census and civil records. 

Prior to your stay a genealogy information form will be sent to the guests to be completed prior to their arrival so they can begin their research.
