The Main Archive Catalogue contains information on publicly accessible material held by the Archive including architectural drawings and related documents, photographs and the Archive’s reference library.

The Catalogue is a work in progress. While added to on a daily basis, it contains information on only a section of the Archive’s holdings. In addition, other finding aids such as individual collection lists are accessible only in the Archive reading room. If you don’t find what you are looking for here, please contact the Archive.

The Catalogue provides information on material held by the Archive. The material itself may be consulted in the Archive’s Reading Room at 45 Merrion Square, Dublin 2. The Reading Room is open to the public from 10 am to 5 pm, Tuesdays to Fridays. Prior to any visit, you should read the rules and regulations governing access and use of material held by the Archive. These can be found here.

A guide to using the Online Catalogue can be found here.




The ‘Catalogue Online’ project was supported by the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, the Heritage Council and the Ireland Funds.
