National Library of Ireland

ireland (2)

Is this a beautiful Library or what?  Like Trinity, the National Library of Ireland is also located in Dublin, so this city is the lucky host of two cool libraries.

Established in 1877, this is a research library rather than a lending library, and it holds a large quantity of Irish and Irish-related material which can be consulted without charge.

There’s a quiet air of study and concentration here and I didn’t feel we should wander around and disturb people, so we just stuck our heads in and ogled this breathtaking space. Also took a couple of pictures.

If you’re in the neighborhood, check it out!
