Bru Boru Family Research/Dinner/Program/?

We'll be staying at Rockside House and they've made reservations for us to see the Bru Boru program. I was wondering if anyone had done the dinner/program combination and had any feedback on the meal. Is the food/atmosphere good value for the money?

Also, has anyone done any family genealogical research at the Bru Boru center? We have very limited information about my husband's great grandfather - just a name, and the fact that he trained as a master of coach at "an English owned estate in Tipperary, not far from Clonmel." We thought we'd check with the heritage center to see if they might suggest how we might start tracking down more information.

Thanks all. I hope I'm not asking too many questions -I'll be sure to return the favor after our trip!!!

Bru Boru

Hi Wren,

No problem with asking as many questions as you want. That's what my forum is for. I have not personally eaten at Bru Boru, however a client of mine did and said dinner was average but nothing to write home about. On the other hand they loved the show. I hope that helps you to make a decision. If you want a very nice restaurant try Chez Hans.

I am not into genealogy but I do know enough to tell you to gather as much info as you can prior to your trip. If you have names, birth dates, death dates, baptism dates, exact town or townland names, name of the estate, etc. The more you can dig up the quicker the process will be.

Let us know how you get on and what your opinion is of everything when you return.

Looking forward to contributing

Thanks for the input, Michelle. Unless I hear that the food is exceptional, I think I'll leave the reservations just for the show and play the rest by ear. I think we'll save the price of that particular meal to spend on something a bit more interesting. Between the exchange rate and helping our daughter through her final year of college, we're trying to keep expenses down.

We're not too serious about the family history research - my husband's family wasn't much on record keeping so we don't have much to go on. We'll see what happens.

I'll probably have a few more questions before we go -under three weeks left now! I've picked up lots of good ideas from you and the others on this forum and appreciate all the good advice. I'll enjoy sharing our experiences when we get back!
