Laurel Villa is the ideal base for searching your Magherafelt and Northern Irish roots. Your hosts, the Kielt family, have lived in the Magherafelt/ South Derry district for countless generations. We have extensive local knowledge of Magherafelt families and families from other local parishes in Derry, Antrim and Tyrone. Moreover, Eugene is a member of a local historical society and he has given talks on family and local history.
