Manuscripts & Archives' 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.
