I am tracing my Irish ancestry and have found some connections in the mid-1800's in Dublin. I am planning my first trip to Ireland in late October and was wondering if anyone have feedback about traveling that time of year, in addition to utilizing the public resource records that are available. I am considering approx. 4 days in Dublin for sightseeing and research and 6 days on the road.
The physical address of the National Archives of Ireland is Bishop Street, Dublin 8, Ireland. Research was a minor part of our trip and they were very helpful in the short time we had there. Use their online resources before you go and check their open hours. Their website is here: http://www.nationalarchives.ie/ It's relatively close to the sights of Ireland and we walked there. Good luck with your search and trip! =Tod
We were there in late October, 2009. The weather was variable but very chilly. The variable part was sunny, drizzle, pouring rain, you get the picture. It's not easy being green.
