About Irish Traditional Music Archive

The Irish Traditional Music Archive is a multi-media reference archive and resource centre for the traditional song, music and dance of Ireland. It is a public not-for-profit facility which promotes public education in Irish traditional music through its own activities and its support for the activities of others.

Established in 1987, the Archive is the first body to be exclusively concerned with the making of a comprehensive collection of materials - sound recordings, books, photographs, videos, etc. - for the appreciation and study of Irish traditional music. It now holds the largest such collection in existence, with coverage of the island of Ireland, of areas of Irish settlement abroad (especially in Britain, North America and Australia), and of non-Irish performers of Irish traditional music. A representative collection of the traditional music of other countries is also being made.

The Archive is currently situated at 63 Merrion Square, Dublin 2. It includes public rooms for the study of materials, and an audio and video recording studio. The collections are open to the general public from 10am - 1pm and 2pm - 5pm, Monday to Friday.
