The Irish Architectural Archive was established in 1976 to collect and preserve material of every kind relating to the architecture of the entire island of Ireland, and make it available to the public.
As a cumulative body of material the holdings of the Archive represent the greatest single source of information on Ireland’s buildings and those who designed them.
The Archive is located at 45 Merrion Square. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, new access protocols are now in place. For more see Access.
The Archive reading room and exhibition spaces will reopen to the public on Monday 17 May 2021.
The Irish Architectural Archive is supported by the Arts Council
