The most significant collection of maps of Irish interest in the Library of Trinity College Dublin’s Manuscripts and Archives Research Library is that of George Carew, Lord President of Munster (b. 1555, d. 1629). The collection contains more than 80 maps, known collectively as the “Hardiman Atlas” (IE TCD MS 1209) after its first cataloguer, James Hardiman, and is one of the largest sets of original Tudor and early Stuart maps of Ireland surviving anywhere.

These maps, along with several others from the Manuscripts & Archives Research Library, the Department of Early Printed Books, and the Glucksman Map Library, dating from 1560 to 1838, can be explored below.
