About

Archaeology Plan advise and provide consultancy on heritage to private clients and public bodies. We provide relevant advice, expertise and knowledge of the planning system, combined with years of practical experience. Our main goal is to facilitate modern development in historic landscapes, and guide and manage projects through the planning system on our client’s behalf, while maintaining the highest professional archaeological standards.

With experience in buried archaeology, buildings and historic landscapes, and research projects, our experts bring added value to a project team and ensure that projects with potential heritage impacts are managed appropriately and effectively.

We are partnered with Buchan, Kane and Foley, Grade 1 Conservation Architects who offer additional services in building conservation and restoration. We have relationships with other professionals in fields such as ecology, environmental engineering, conservation, landscape gardening and geology.

We are committed to education and enabling people to discover and enjoy the heritage of Ireland, and we welcome visitors to our excavation sites on open days and tours. We are keen to integrate with local communities and help them connect with their heritage.
