New ESB Archives Website


A beta version of the new website from ESB Archives is now available to view at
The site will officially be available to the general public before the end of April.

The site provides a virtual archives experience outlining ESB’s unique history and showcases a selection of fabulous photography and video from the collections held at ESB Archives, Harold’s Cross, Dublin 12.

More content will be regularly added to the site as ESB Archives staff continue to work through the digitisation process but already the site contains a substantial amount of rich material on ESB including…

  • Story of the Shannon Scheme
  • Rural Electrification
  • ESB Advertising through the decades
  • A visual portfolio of all our generation stations between 1927 & 1987
  • Every ESB Annual Report since 1927
  • An online version of every book published by ESB

As 2016 marks the 70th anniversary of the beginning of the Rural Electrification scheme we have provided an interactive map showing when electricity was connected to each of the 792 rural areas. We will continue to populate information for each area and hope that staff an ex staff members may have some stories and even photos to share from these locations.

ESB Archives was established in 1991 and has collected and preserved some wonderful material. The collections reflect the unique contribution ESB has made to the economic and social development of Ireland. We are very excited to be able to share these memories and stories through our new web site.
