"Ireland's most active genealogical society"

An Daonchartlann / Archive

The best facility for genealogy research in Ireland.

The Society’s research centre is located at Loughlinstown Drive in the grounds of the Loughlinstown Leisure Centre.

It is located at the terminus of the 7a bus, and on the route of the 111. There is plenty of car-parking space – just drive around to the back of the main leisure-centre buildings to find us.

Note : Due Level 3 Covid-19 Restrictions introduced for Dublin City & County on the 18th September 2020 the Archive & Research Centre will be CLOSED for THREE WEEKS


Our Opening Hours

Wednesdays 10.00-4.00pm 
  (currently by appointment only)

Saturdays  – Closed for the Winter Months

In our building we have a substantial research room with state-of-the-art computer facilities, printers, document camera, microfilm and microfiche readers. Low-speed broadband is installed, and will be upgraded to high-speed broadband within weeks.

On our computer systems there, we have access for members to all of the very best databases of genealogical information, with experts standing by to help both with searching and interpreting

Our archives have been brought from storage to Loughlinstown. Our next challenge is to fit out our archives room, arrange and catalogue all of our extensive collection of books, documents, microfilms, computer disks and other media. We are seeking suitable shelving. The Archives room will be the largest room of the premises
