Our Mission Statement
Ballycastle Enterprises strives to deliver personal, responsive, and accurate results to our valued clients in the retrieval and delivery of Irish family documents and records to help our clients fill in the missing pieces of their Irish family histories.

Our History
Ballycastle Enterprises was founded by an Irish American United States Military Academy (USMA), West Point and Trinity College, Dublin (TCD) graduate, whose Irish grandparents emigrated from Ireland to the United States in May 1912. The company founder has been active in the Baltimore-Washington, DC area Irish American community for over twenty-five years, with a number of past and present Irish American community affiliations.

In past years, we have made many trips to Ireland, retrieving a variety of family documents, including birth, baptism, and marriage certificates, to piece together our Irish ancestors' history and legacy. We named our company, Ballycastle Enterprises, after Ballycastle, a quaint Irish village on the wild, scenic Atlantic coast of north County Mayo, Ireland. Ballycastle is a vibrant, historic community near Glencalry, our grandfather's birthplace and Enaghbeg, our grandmother's birthplace. Ballycastle is surrounded by ancient historic sites for day exploring and walking trails for hiking along the Atlantic coastline. In traveling frequently to Ireland over the past years, we have established many warm, special relationships with friends and relatives in Ireland. These special relationships are greatly cherished by our family. By leveraging our Ireland family document and records knowledge and Ireland contacts, we look forward to providing a valuable product and good client service to our valued clients.

Our Promise
We will do our best to uncover interesting new details about your Irish ancestors, deliver that new information to you, and help you ultimately to find the true origins and birthplaces of your Irish ancestors.
