Welcome to the catalogue of the holdings of the Royal Society of Antiquaries of Ireland. The RSAI Library has collections of books and journals relating principally to the local history, archaeology, and antiquities of Ireland, including titles published in the UK and further afield.

The Society’s archives include a comprehensive collection of photographic albums and slides, primarily depicting archaeological sites in Ireland. It also preserves a variety of communications, documents and drawings by notable Irish antiquaries including George Victor Du Noyer, George Miller, James Robertson and James Graves.

Our collections are for reference only. No appointment is necessary, although readers wishing to consult image collections or manuscript material are required to contact the Librarian in advance of their visit.
