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 2002/4, 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.
