Founded in 1976, the Irish Architectural Archive is located in an impressive Georgian townhouse with double frontage of red brick and a fine example of a Doric door case. The house was restored to its original plan by the Office of Public Works in 2003/4, and updated for use as a best-practice archive facility. While in the Archive visitors will have the opportunity to view the latest exhibition in the Architecture Gallery. Tours will include the basement, ground and first floors.

First-come basis: Just turn up and look out for Open House Dublin volunteers. Wheelchair accessible.
