This is by far the most unusual and interesting museum in Dublin. They've got a bit of everything, but the core of the collection is made up of rare religious texts from Asia and the Middle East. Lots of manuscripts on papyrus, hundreds of Korans, early Biblical texts, and so on. The garden outside is a perfect place for a picnic.

A free museum within the Dublin Castle complex that houses a large collection of illuminated religious texts.
Definitely not up to the same status of the Book of Kells, but many really interesting artifacts and displays.
