Ireland’s most comprehensive heritage resource, HeritageMaps.ie enables you locate a vast range of heritage-related sites and projects.

The HeritageMaps.ie viewer provides access to national heritage data sets in map form while incorporating additional contextual data from a wide range of online sources.

It also includes datasets that are unique to this project such as soil susceptibility to coastal erosion, museums datasets and a range of thematic county heritage surveys.
