  • Ticket from minimal cost, only reason to come in and browse around. Ancient library. Offers temporary exhibitions. Absolutely nothing to brag about.

  • A very unique and historic library, well worth visiting!! Our cathedral tour guide recommended it, as it's tucked away just behind the cathedral and is like "stepping into the past". The library also had two interesting exhibitions on War poetry and book thieves when we visited. Very much worth the €3 entry fee (€2 for students).
  • Great little library with quite a bit of history to it, worth a visit if you are around. We got to visit it when it was almost empty which was fun. The staff here are very friendly.
  • We were lucky to visit it almost completely empty and it was amazing! The library is beautiful and the books are simply gorgeous. And I have to mention that the employees were one of the nicest people we encountered during our visit to Dublin! This place was definitely one of the highlights of our trip!
  • Really interesting library with books dating back from 1400's. They don't allow you to take pictures inside, but it is very nice inside and outside. There is a bathroom inside as well
  • Beautiful library full of medieval manuscripts. Great little stories and tales put up as you walk around. The library consists of two galleries so is quite small but the current exhibition is fascinating who knew graffiti in books is not a modern problem.

Where to stay in Dublin

Dublin offers everything from luxury hotels to eclectic guesthouses. Explore over 1,000 years of history in the city on foot by staying at one of the hotels or hostels in the city center. The south side of the river has always been a popular place to stay, particularly near Temple University or the tourist nightlife center Temple Bar, but a new crop of attractive options has popped up on the north side as well. For more affordable accommodations, try a hostel or make your way toward St. Stephen's Green for a more comfortable stay at a mid-range hotel. If the artistic spirit of Dublin is what beckoned you, spend your holiday in a guesthouse near the creative Lower Gardiner Street.
