Irish Archives Resource
IAR is an online service for finding records. We do not hold any collections but thanks to our contributors we can help researchers find out where records are held and how to access them.
You can search for archive records across lots of different Archives Services in Ireland, north and south.
Enter the name of a person, place or subject in our Search and the results will bring up the collections that hold records on that topic. Click on any of the results to find a more detailed description of the collection and a link to the relevant Archives Service website.
