IP Search Tools

Is your idea, invention or brand available? Before applying for your intellectual property right, you should do a comprehensive search to make sure that it is not already registered.

Search the Irish Register & Database

Search Outside Ireland

Even If your idea is available in Ireland, there are rights abroad that block your idea. To be sure search the rights that apply outside Ireland.
