About the Project


The Connacht and Munster Landed Estates project, funded by the Irish Council for Research in the Humanities and Social Sciences and the Programme for Research in Third Level Institutions respectively, undertook the research for, and the publication of, a comprehensive and integrated resource guide to landed estates and historic houses in Connacht and Munster, c. 1700-1914. The aim of the guide is to assist and support researchers working on the social, economic, political and cultural history of these provinces from c.1700 to 1914.

The project involved the distillation and collation of data from a broad range of historical sources, and the concise codification of these data on an estate/name basis. Full details of the sources used can be viewed under Reference Sources in the database.

The Project is hosted by the Moore Institute for Research in the Humanities and Social Studies at the National University of Ireland, Galway.
