The GRO Search Room at Werburgh Street, Dublin 8, has added another day of opening to its weekly timetable.

GRO Indexes at the Dublin Search Room 

Researchers can now visit the office without an appointment on the following days and times:

  • Tuesdays 10am–12:30pm 2pm–4.30pm
  • Wednesdays 10am–12:30pm 2pm–4.30pm
  • Thursdays 10am–12:30pm 2pm–4.30pm

On these three days of the week only, those wanting to search the civil registration indexes or obtain 'research copy' versions of birth, marriage and death entries from the registers, will be able to walk-in without any prior arrangement during the hours above, subject to capacity.

The GRO's email service continues to operate via This service requires that you have sufficient information to identify a specific entry from the index.

UPDATE, 2 June: Ignore the above opening hours. It seems the GRO are going to decide on a weekly basis when they can provide the service.  Hard to believe.
