So travelling to Ireland is going to have to go "on the long finger" this year; but here's something you can do to #FillYourHeartWithIreland from wherever you are...

Whether that trip to Ireland is the dream of a loved one or your own, why not create a BUCKET LIST while you wait for your next Irish trip?

Get the 'insider' take on what there is to see and do in Ireland with our LOCAL GUIDE . You can browse all your favourite spots and even add information about ones that you know about, but that have not yet been listed on our Guide. These can be easily accessed on your My IrelandXO dashboard anytime you need them and are easy to SHARE with family and friends.

Here's how...

My IrelandXO Bucket List

The Ireland LOCAL GUIDE is a free facility for you to create and collate an Ireland Bucket List for sightseeing, entertainment, research and more.

No matter where you are in the world, you can add places to the Local Guide with the added benefit of helping others along the way. Ireland Reaching Out invites you, its diaspora, to reach-in with your invaluable diaspora wish-list and recommendations!

  • Have you visited Ireland in the past? Want to give that spot that stole your heart a shout-out?

  • Dreaming of making that trip one day in the future? Planning to visit your ancestral county?

  • On a mission to dig deep into local (offline) records when you get there? Need a way to recall that heritage group/cemetery/ library name? 

No more bookmarks and lost pins... once you have created a Local Guide post, you can access it anytime, anywhere from your My IrelandXO page (see "My Local Guides").

Moreover, your Diaspora Shout-out will mean more than you could ever know to our local organisations & small businesses AND to other seekers on the same path as you. 

With your help, here's what's possible... BROWSE LOCAL GUIDE

As you can see, you can use the Local Guide to signpost Facebook Pages, organisations and even books!  If you don't have a photo (or all the details yet) don't worry, you can still create the post and edit anytime. And if unsure of which parish they belong to, you can tag the County instead.
