Visiting The Library Project & the PhotoIreland Foundation Collection

The Library Project is accessible as a retail space during the advertised opening hours, noting that these may change during certain exhibitions, particularly in January and September.

From 2018, The Library Project collection becomes the 'PhotoIreland Foundation Collection', and though it may not represent a mayor change in its presentation, it acknowledges the expansion of the collection aiming to acquire other materials relevant to contemporary Photography in Ireland beyond the photobook.

It is good practice to inform us about any visit in advance, as we would like to make sure we can satisfy your needs.

Researchers should note that we actively collect all types of relevant ephemera and forward it regularly to NIVAL, The National Irish Visual Arts Library, a far more resourced and adequate organisation we endeavour to support. Most of the ephemeral materials we generate are also presented to them. We invite visitors to find out more about NIVAL and benefit from their excellent services.

Group Visits: To book an appointment, please email tlp@photoireland.org or alternatively you can use the contact form.

Research: If you are conducting research on a particular subject, we can facilitate access at specific hours and provide further guidance. Contact us to arrange a visit, or to consult about any of the materials in the collection.

Loans: While The Library Project is a resource library and it does not loan items regularly, temporary loans could be arranged if they are considered part of a genuine research project, or for one-off exhibitions. Let us know what we can help you with and we will do our best to accommodate you.
