The National Archives is the official place of deposit for government records where members of the public can view original archives.
Our reading room is located on Bishop Street in Dublin City centre.
All researchers must possess a valid National Archives reader’s ticket.
A reader’s ticket is issued for 3 years and must be produced on each visit.
The reading room is open Monday to Friday from 9.15 until 17.00 to members of the public in possession of a valid reader’s ticket.
A Duty Archivist is available each day to provide advice to researchers and answer questions on our holdings.
