Get a truly behind-the-scenes perspective on the workings of the IFI Irish Film Archive and let us show you the film vaults deep beneath our Temple Bar building. We’ll talk through the incredible collections held in the IFI Irish Film Archive, show you around the climate controlled film vaults and talk through how we safeguard our collections that span from 1897 to the present day.

We preserve over 30,000 cans of film and 10,000 broadcast tapes, and our collections include newsreels, feature films, home movies, travelogues, advertisements and documentaries; as well as film collections from such internationally renowned film directors such as Jim Sheridan, Lenny Abrahamson and Alan Parker. You then have the option to include a lunch at the IFI Café Bar located in one of the most unique film houses in Dublin.

Please note that the IFI Irish Film Archive vaults, which form part of the tour, are accessed via a narrow staircase and are regrettably not suitable for wheelchair users or persons with reduced or limited mobility.

€39.50 (Tour + Lunch)
€25 (Tour only)
