    One of my favorite places in Dublin! The 25 Most Beautiful College Libraries in the World / The Trinity College Library, aka “The Long Room,” Dublin, Ireland

  • Leah Marie Brown

    *DUBLIN - Trinity College Library - Ranked the most beautiful library in the world!! Welcome to the Old Library and the Book of Kells Exhibition - a “must see” on the itinerary of all visitors to Dublin. Located in the heart of Dublin City, a walk through the cobbled stones of Trinity College Dublin will bring visitors back to the 18th century, when the magnificent Old Library building was constructed. Inside is housed the Book of Kells - a 9th-century gospel manuscript famous throughout the world. Visitors are welcomed by our friendly staff seven days a week. Please click on Opening Hours and Plan Your Visit for more information. Visitors enter through the Library Shop and proceed to the Book of Kells "Turning Darkness into Light" exhibition; then to the Treasury where the Book of Kells and other related manuscripts are on view; then proceed upstairs to the magnificent Long Room which houses 200,000 of the Library’s oldest books in its oak bookcases. Exhibitions are held in the Long Room to display the rich holdings of the Library and encourage further research. Click on Exhibitions and Events for information on the current exhibition.
