National Inventory of Architectural Heritage
The National Inventory of Architectural Heritage is a state initiative established under the provisions of the Architectural Heritage (National Inventory) and Historic Monuments (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1999 to identify, record, and evaluate the post-1700 built heritage of Ireland, uniformly and consistently as an aid to its protection and conservation.
Surveys: NIAH building surveys provide the basis for the recommendations of the Minister for Arts, Heritage Regional, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs to the planning authorities for the inclusion of particular structures in their Record of Protected Structures. The published surveys are a source of information on the selected structures for relevant planning authorities. They are also a research and educational resource.
The NIAH has also undertaken the initial phase of a Survey of Historic Gardens and Designed Landscapes.
Publication: Surveys are published on the NIAH website. With each county or city survey, the NIAH is publishing an illustrated introduction to the architecture of the area. A full list of these can be found on the NIAH website.
If you have any additional information or corrections regarding the survey please contact the NIAH directly
