Tailte Éireann is an independent Government agency under the aegis of the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage.
Providing a property registration system, property valuation service, and national mapping and surveying infrastructure for the State, the agency was formed by the merger of the Property Registration Authority (PRA), the Valuation Office and Ordnance Survey Ireland (OSI).
The Tailte Éireann Act 2022 provided for the dissolution of the PRA and OSI and the transfer of the functions of those bodies, along with the functions of the Commissioner of Valuation and the Boundary Surveyor, to Tailte Éireann. The dissolution and transfer took effect on 1st March 2023.
What we do
The core business of our organisation is to provide a system of registration of ownership to land in Ireland, to deliver to our stakeholders accurate, up-to-date valuations of commercial and industrial properties and to create and maintain the definitive mapping records and physical infrastructure of the State.
Tailte Éireann is responsible for advising on the fixing of maritime and international boundaries and delimiting statutory boundaries and delineating such boundaries on maps.
In addition, Tailte Éireann is the custodian of an extensive archive of unique records which provide an invaluable resource for genealogical and historical research.
