Between 1829 and 1842 Ordnance Survey Ireland (OSI) completed the first ever large-scale survey of an entire country. Acclaimed for their accuracy, these maps are regarded by cartographers as amongst the finest ever produced.

As the national mapping archive service for Ireland, OSi has captured this and later mapping data in a digitised format. Through this website you can view and download this data or place an order for delivery by post.

The new archive currently comprises the following series of maps:

  • 6 inch mapping series (1:10,560) colour 1837-1842
  • 6 inch mapping series (1:10,560) greyscale 1837-1842
  • 25 inch mapping series (1:2,500) greyscale 1888-1913
  • The above historic maps, originally surveyed on a county basis, now make up Ordnance Survey Ireland's digital image archive. Every image in the archive has been captured from an original print and each digital map image is now a seamless map title within the archive.

    With an easy-to-use browser you can search by county or townland. You can also pan across the entire archive and zoom in to view sections in greater detail. All A4 size historic products purchased from the online shop are delivered via PDF electronic download only. For larger A0 size historic products, we deliver by post only.

    *Certain mountain and moorland areas were mapped to a 6 inch scale only. These particular areas will appear as gaps when viewing the 25 inch map series online.
