“Looking for long lost family”
Reviewed 2 July 2013

Charming and quaint, you feel excited as soon as you start to fill out the application form. Brendan is a great researcher and happy to explain and answer as many questions and queries you may have. Be warned you will leave with your head buzzing with facts and figures about your long lost ancestors. PS They also serve a great coffee in the tea room.

“A gem”
Reviewed 30 June 2013

This is the place to visit when searching your Irish roots and so many Irish Americans can trace their roots to Co. Mayo.

“Great staff and help at the Heritage Center”
Reviewed 21 June 2013

Asked for help in researching my wife's ancestry and were rewarded with enough information to actually track down some distant relations. They followed up with emails the next day and we received phone calls from relatives that the center had contacted in our behalf. There is a fee for this service..
