Successive phase transitions of $$R_{3}$$Ir$$_{4}$$Sn$$_{13}$$ ($$R$$: La and Ce) were studied using neutron and X-ray diffraction techniques. A semimetal Ce$$_{3}$$Ir$$_{4}$$Sn$$_{13}$$ undergoes three phase transitions: an antiferromagnetic ordering characterized by a propagation vector $$q_{rm M}$$ = (1/2, 1/2, 2/5) below 0.6 K, a structural transformation with $$q_{rm S2}$$= (1/4, 1/4, 1/4) at 2.0 K, and another structural transformation with $$q_{rm S1}$$ = (1/2, 1/2, 0) above room temperature. La$$_{3}$$Ir$$_{4}$$Sn$$_{13}$$ was confirmed to be a superconductor below 2.5 K under the $$q_{rm S1}$$ = (1/2, 1/2, 0) structure that also appears above room temperature.
