We are delighted to announce that the RSAI has been awarded funding under the Community Heritage Grant Scheme 2020. The grant will help us improve the preservation and access to the RSAI collections, including the  digitisation of the unique Miller/Robertson albums. We cannot wait to share the outcomes of the project with you in due course.


Dear Members and Visitors,

Please be advised that our staff will continue working from home and both the RSAI office and library will remain closed to the public until further notice. We will resume our normal opening hours as soon as it safe to do so.

Unfortunately, we are obliged to cancel our Spring lecture series and upcoming Spring Excursion to county Wexford. With further government restrictions in place, we decided that suspending our current programme of lectures and events is the most appropriate measure to help minimise the spread of the coronavirus. The talks and lectures scheduled for April and May 2020 will be postponed until further notice.

Thank you for your understanding.

The RSAI Team
