Data on real estate of Ireland are contained in two systems: Land Cadastre being the land registry proper (Clárlann na Talún), and Registry of Deeds (Clárlann na nGníomhas).
Both registries are under the jurisdiction of the Property Registration Administration subordinate to the Ministry of Justice and Equality of Ireland.
The Property Registration Administration (PRA) is a state body responsible for registration of transactions with real estate in Ireland. It was established in 2006. Offices of the Administration are located in Dublin, Waterford and Roscommon.
A land registry record is divided into three parts:
- Description of geographical location of an object with a reference to a digital map and type of ownership
- Personal data and address of owners, information about a legal status
- Encumbrances and restrictions of rights
The Irish Land Registry is public. However, a fee is levied for services related to access to its information. A pre-paid invoice and identifier must be available for access to data bases. As of today, approximately 15 thousand users have been registered in the system of land registry of Ireland.
