Welcome to the Irish Association of Professional Historians (IAPH). We are a network that seeks to raise the profile of our members, engaging with individuals and organisations both inside and outside the academy. IAPH also provides the public with access to quality assured historical services.

IAPH was established in response to the growing number of historians in Ireland qualified to doctoral level (PhD). These professionals are trained in a wide range of research methods and have expertise in writing, editing and presenting information in a range of formats. IAPH is a community that fosters collaboration and cooperation amongst its members, and provides opportunities in professional development, with a focus on transferrable skills. Membership is open to graduate and professional historians.

IAPH is supported by the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht.
