Lewis's Topographical Dictionary of Ireland is the first detailed study of its kind for Ireland. It was published in 1837 (in a three volume set), before the Famine (1845-50), so it is very important for historians and genealogists of the early nineteenth century.

Lewis gives details about every parish, town and village in Ireland, including numbers of inhabitants, the economy, history, topography, religion and parish structures, administration and courts, schools, and much more. He also gives the names of the principal inhabitants (generally landlords, merchants and professionals).

This Dictionary is divided into four parts:

  • Preface and Subscribers
  • Volume 1: A-G
  • Volume 2: H-Z
  • Volume 3: Maps

The maps are in full colour, making this source one of the most important for research on Ireland.
