Welcome to the website of the Valuation Office, the Government of Ireland’s national valuation service provider.

We are an independent Government Office, under the aegis of Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage, staffed by civil servants. The core business of our organisation is to provide our stakeholders with accurate, up-to-date valuations of commercial and industrial properties. These valuations are integral to the business rating system in Ireland, and form the basis for a very significant element of local government revenue each year. 

We also provide a valuation service to Government Departments and Offices, State agencies and other public bodies. We carry out open market capital and rental valuations including valuations for rent reviews for these customers. Open market valuations are provided for properties being transferred between Government Departments, State bodies and other public authorities and agencies across the country.

We are also custodians of an extensive archive of unique records which provide information and insights into the social history of Ireland covering the period from 1850 to 1990. These records provide an invaluable resource for genealogical and historical research.

I hope that you find our website useful and informative. We are always keen to receive constructive feedback and please contact us at websitefeedback@valoff.ie in this regard.
