After a summer hiatus, the Irish Architechural Archive is open to the public once again.
Housed in a beautiful and faithfully restored Georgian townhouse in Dublin’s Merrion Square, the Archive is well worth a visit.
Anyone with an interest in Irish architectural history should check it out.
Currently the Archive is presenting an exhibition on the work of Irish-Australian architect Raymond McGrath

In addition to exhibition, the Archive welcomes researchers who are looking for access to architectural drawings, papers, books and periodiclas.
The Archive’s reading room is open to the public from 10am to 5pm, Tuesdays to Fridays.
Access on Mondays can be arranged by appointment (e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or phone +353 1 6633040 to make a booking).
All legitimate researchers are welcome. There are no admittance charges but access is at the discretion of the Archive staff, and all readers are required to register before they can use the reading room.
Members of staff are always on hand to assist readers and provide direction in identifying relevant material.
The Archive will be open for tours as part of Culture Night 2013 on Friday, September 20th.
