Accommodation for the 2020 Irish Family History Experience is not included in this event package. There are however a number of hotels close to Belfast’s historic Cathedral Quarter which would merit consideration.

The Malmaison and Merchant hotels are located in historic buildings and have an excellent reputation but can be expensive. The Ramada Encore and Premier Inn would be cheaper options. Alternatively, you may wish to stay elsewhere in Belfast or its vicinity. Go to to check out accommodation options.

Important Note: The pick up and drop-off point for the duration of the Tracing your Irish Ancestors conference will be on Talbot Street at the junction with Dunbar Street (Outside the Ramada Encore). Delegates not staying in the vicinity will be expected to make their own way here to take part in the tours and outings.

Below is an image of the an area in Belfast close to the pick-up point each morning. It is recommended that delegates stay within this area as complications might arise with regards travel if you are further outside this area.
