This website is hosted by the Archives & Records Association, Ireland in order to provide a practical and interesting online information service for the general public (but more especially educators and their students) on archival material and archive services in Ireland.
Using this website you can learn about the enormously diverse and exciting historical resources available in archive services around the country, where to find them and how to use them. Many of the archive services have provided digitised examples of some of the most significant and popular collections which they hold.
If you are a student or teacher you can find digitised documents on specific periods in history by clicking on 'Sample Documents'. These are gathered from archive services around the country and can be printed out for use in the classroom or for your own study purposes.
LearnAboutArchives.ie is supported by the Heritage Council of Ireland. The Heritage Council promotes interest, education, knowledge and pride in the national heritage.
