​Information on the Wicklow Genealogy Service, which offers help and advice to people with Wicklow roots.

Wicklow Genealogy Service

The Wicklow County Archives offers advice and guidance to those with Wicklow roots. The service was established in 1987 by Wicklow County Council. Since its foundation, our staff has computerised Wicklow's Roman Catholic and Church of Ireland parish registers, some of which date from the 17th century. Methodist and Presbyterian church records within the county have also been computerised. All of our parish records stop at 1900. Our baptisms, marriages and burial records are also available online at

Research advice/consultation - appointment only

Monday to Thursday: 10am - 5pm (closed for lunch 1-2pm).
