The National Archives holds rich and varied collections of records which are relevant to Irish genealogy* and local history and everyone is welcome to visit NAI and explore the sources we hold on these topics.


Visitors are welcome to use the National Archives in-house Genealogy Service which offers a free, short personal consultation service by professional genealogists to those researching their family tree. This service is available from Monday to Friday, 9.30–17.00. [*staff cannot undertake research on behalf of members of the public].


The National Archives is located in Bishop Street, Dublin D08 DF85, beside the Dublin Institute of Technology, Aungier Street, and close to St. Stephen’s Green. If you have not been to the National Archives before, please consult the Frequently Asked Questions.


For an idea of just some of the wide range of records available to search, please visit their genealogy website where you can view census returns for the 19th and early 20th centuries, the 19th-century Tithe Applotment BooksSoldiers’ Wills and will calendars for the years 1858-1920 and 1922-1982.

The National Archives genealogy menu contains information on getting started and on the family and local history sources held both in the NAI and elsewhere.
