The Geology Department houses teaching and research collections the first of which were acquired by Trinity in 1777. Currently the collections comprise over 200,000 specimens. The main palaeontological holdings include Irish Silurian and Carboniferous invertebrates, Mesozoic ostracods, and Upper Palaeozoic miospores. The rock and mineral collections largely date from the 1820s and contains both Irish and foreign specimens. A number of displays on topical aspects of Geology can be seen in the entrance hall of the Museum Building which is open Monday to Friday, 9.00am to 5.00pm. The hallway also contains skeletons of the iconic Pleistocene mammal, the giant Irish Deer, and various Irish and foreign decorative stones make up the pillars and the staircase. The main Geology Museum gallery and collection is now located in Unit 24 of the Trinity Enterprise Centre, Pearse Street, Dublin and is currently being renovated. It should be reopened to visitors in the first half of 2015. Material for academic research and for exhibition purposes is available on a short-term loan basis at the discretion of the Curator. The Curator is Dr Patrick Wyse Jackson with whom bookings should be made (Tel: 353-1-8961477; Fax: 353-1-6711199; email:
