Visit to the Dublin City Archives, 22nd May 2024

We invite you and your friends to join us on Wednesday, 22nd of May for a visit to the Dublin City Library and Archive.

Lorraine McLoughlin, Dublin City Archivist and her deputy will lead us on a tour of the building, showing us many priceless collections of artefacts and documents dating back over nine centuries.

As the Dart stops so close to the Archive, we have decided to meet at the Dart Station in Greystones no later than 9.00am to catch the 9.04am train to Pearse Station. There is a very short walk from the station to the Archive on Pearse Street which we can walk together. We turn right on exiting the station and right again onto Pearse Street.

This is our only organised visit on the day, but the National Gallery and National Museum as well as the National Library are all within easy walking distance.

As numbers are limited in the Archives please do let us know if you are coming along by sending a text with your name to 086 306 1855.
