Ireland Illustrated, 1680-1860

A database of images drawn from travel accounts is newly online with over 500 images of Ireland – woodcuts, water colours, engravings and other illustrations. Complete with related text, drawn from more than 50 manuscript and printed works, it highlights several neglected or rarely accessible sources.
The online database, a work in progress, is hosted by NUI Galway’s Moore Institute with the support of libraries in Ireland and abroad, in particular that of the National Library of Ireland and the James Hardiman Library at NUI Galway.
