Manuscripts and Archives Research Library

Welcome to the Manuscripts and Archives Research Library, home to more than 20,000 collections of manuscripts and archives, dating from the 13th century BC to the present day.

The Manuscripts and Archives Research Library’s collections reflect the intellectual, spiritual, economic and everyday lives of scholars, patriots, rebels, church men and women, politicians, explorers, landowners, servants and students. The Book of Kells, the Book of Durrow and the Book of Armagh are among Ireland’s greatest treasures but these iconic manuscripts are only part of the Library's richly diverse holdings.

We continue to add to our collections, building on existing strengths and advancing into new areas of scholarship.

Researchers from all over the world utilise the Library’s manuscript and archive collections. We look forward to helping you further your research.
