The National Inventory of Architectural Heritage (NIAH) is a state initiative under the administration of the Department of Arts, Heritage, Regional, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs and established on a statutory basis under the provisions of the Architectural Heritage (National Inventory) and Historic Monuments (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1999.The purpose of the NIAH is to identify, record, and evaluate the post-1700 architectural heritage of Ireland, uniformly and consistently as an aid in the protection and conservation of the built heritage. NIAH 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 (RPS). The data is available by province on the NIAH Data Download page and is .csv format. It contains all the Ministerial Recommendations published to date and is updated as surveys are published.

Provenance information It is important to note that this mapping uses the Irish Transverse Mercator (ITM) co-ordinate system. In order to facilitate users during the transition from Irish Grid (IG) to ITM, downloads will include both sets of co-ordinates. The existing point centroids for the records were digitised relative to the OSI 6-inch mapping and the move from this older IG-referenced series to the larger-scale ITM mapping will necessitate revisions.
