Virtual Record Treasury of Ireland

The Public Record Office of Ireland: The Story of a building

This exhibition, presented by the National Archives in partnership with the Irish Architectural Archive under the State’s Decade of Centenaries Programme, provides a brief window into the story of a building—the construction, destruction and reconstruction of the Public Record Office of Ireland, the predecessor institution to the National Archives. 

The exhibition presents architectural drawings, elevations and plans of the ambitious building which was finished in 1867. These have never been on public display before. These architectural drawings bring to life a building that no longer graces the Dublin skyline.
