Located near the Titanic Quarter of Belfast, this new building is spacious, clean and well planned for the researcher. If you are interested in reading this review then you know that the public records office holds those records for Northern Ireland and many for the three counties of Ulster that are still part of Ireland, Fermanagh, Monaghan and Armagh.

I came here for a conference a few months ago and I was really impressed with the facility and I didn't take time to delve into the archives, but I think the space will be more impressive as Titanic Quarter expands and develops. For now, it still feels a bit like an untapped area with much needed potential and growth.... More

Archives staff was tremendously helpful. Process for viewing records ran very smoothly. Nice purpose-built building, although a bit off the beaten path from the main area of the city.

Went to see the Public a Record Office to do some research and was blown away by the facilities and the amount of information available. New,spacious building in the Titanic quarter,much better than its predecessor but parking is an issue.

It was an interesting place and especially helpful when looking up ancestors who came from Northern Ireland. Staff very helpful and the building quite nice.

Called in to look for 1940's images. This was my first time and I had to register and get my photograph taken for a pass but that's valid for a year. It's a new building with fantastic computer reference facilities and staff to help. There's even a cafe on site as it'll take a while to research. Although there's ticketed... More

Though I had very, very little time to visit the Public Record Office of Northern Ireland, I wanted to make it a priority during my short stay in the Belfast area. Sadly, that time was even more limited than anticipated. My partner and I had debated whether or not to visit one research facility (PRONI) or another (Ulster Heritage Foundation).... More

This place is amazing. There is so much information, so many different aspects and everyone is very friendly and helpful. It's well worth a visit whether you have ancestry in Northern Ireland or not. The eatery inside is very nice too and clean. The records are wonderfully kept whether it's microfilm or paper form. You could be at this building... More
