Natural History Research Services

Some of the 1 million insects at the Collections Resource Centre

The Natural History Division manages access to the collections, including related library and archives, housed in the National Museum of Ireland - Natural History, Merrion Street, Dublin 2 and at our Collections Resource Centre. Please contact staff in advance of your visit to make an appointment.

Please be aware that very specific requests may require particular members of staff to be on hand, so the earlier you make a request the more likely we will be able to meet your expectations.

There are databases of most collections and numerous paper sources, all available on site to assist in research.
