The Archive is comprised of 75,000 photographs, 30,000 engineering drawings, 600 historical registers, yearbooks dating back to 1926 along with a ‘Name Book’ for employees from 1906 to 1925.

The collections from the Archive are currently being catalogued and the Dublin Port Digital Archive is an online resource containing examples from the collections and a searchable database of handwritten records from the Dublin Port ‘Name Book’ for employees from 1906 to 1914.
