City Hall was first built as the Royal Exchange and was completed in 1779. It was taken over by Dublin Corporation in 1852 and now houses the Dublin City Archives. This collection records the activities of the municipal government of Dublin from the 12th century to the present. It contains a significant number of medieval documents such as the White Book and the Chain Book of Dublin. The Archive also includes a series of Assembly Rolls from 1447 to 1741, inscribed on parchment. Those wishing to conduct research should make an appointment with the head archivist.
