The Irish Costume Archive Project was initiated to collect, preserve and exhibit Irelands film and television design heritage and promote the collections by highlighting their importance as part of our national film culture.

The Digital archive is the online resource of the ICAP collection, and on loan costumes featured in Irish Film and Television Productions.


‘Good costume design, like everything else in film-making,

demands individual creativity in the service of the narrative and the film as a whole.’- Brendan Gleeson
