A key function of the Office of Public Works (OPW) is to provide office accommodation for Government Departments / Offices. In this regard, OPW holds a portfolio of property throughout the country to meet the various operational needs of the Civil Service, the Gardaí and various other State Bodies. The accommodation is provided in a mixture of State owned and leased offices and the OPW currently holds 337 leases associated with 278 office buildings.

The following table shows the current office leases held by the OPW. It does not include leases that Departments / Offices may have taken themselves directly from a landlord as the OPW is not privy to that information.
