The Augustinian Archives

The Augustinian Archives are the memories of the Order. The Augustinians strive to preserve and make available to users, archives of enduring value generated by the Province. They are committed to preserving their story which reflects many aspects of social, political and economic history in Ireland. The Augustinians value and support historical research, and to this end will co-operate fully with bona-fide researchers who seek access to their archives, under the terms of the Order's Access Policy.

The Archives are open for Research on Wednesdays from 10.00am to 04.00pm. If you are not a member of the Augustinians in Ireland and have not previously used the Archives, the initial request for an appointment must be made by filling in a Research Request Form and returning it to the address below. (Unfortunately, due to renovations, the archives will be closed until the end of February 2019)
