To make contact with the Irish Traditional Music Archive, you can

  • Visit the Archive at its premises at the times above. We are closed only on Irish public holidays and from 24 December to 2 January inclusive, apart from exceptional circumstances.

    A visit is naturally the best option for benefiting from our collections and information resources. An appointment is not necessary, unless you have special requirements, are part of a small group, or wish to talk to a particular member of staff. In these cases it is advisable to phone before travelling.
  • Write to the Archive at 73 Merrion Square, Dublin 2. We try to answer brief reasonable questions if we can, but like every other library or archive we do not have the resources to read books for you or do your research for you.
  • Phone the Archive at +353-1-6619699. Again we will try to answer brief reasonable questions if we can.
  • Fax the Archive at +353-1-6624585.
  • The Archive uses e-mail for administrative purposes only, and regrets that its resources do not enable it to cope with email queries regarding personal research (the Archive website receives about 1.5 million hits annually). Email addresses of some staff members are available on the staff page.
