It is the most comprehensive survey of architecture in Ireland to be published in recent times.The essays in this volume cover all aspects of Ireland's built environment; not only buildings but infrastructure, landscape development, towns, cities, public and private construction, and much else. 

The Art and Architecture of Ireland volumes, published for the Royal Irish Academy and the Paul Mellon Centre, are an authoritative and fully illustrated account of the art and architecture of Ireland from the early Middle Ages to the end of the twentieth-century.
