    This was the library in Dublin I wanted to see the most as I love old books. It's tiny and full of supremely old books of every shape and size. When I visited they had an exhibit of books detailing maps and stories from when America was just being explored. The staff were even more delightful - completely willing to just stand around and chat about anything and everything.

Description

Ireland's oldest public library has the sober feel of a place of serious scholarship. It was founded in 1701 as a library, and a library it remains more than 300 years later. The Queen Anne style building still has its original oak bookshelves, worn from the fingers of generations of readers. Visitors are asked to pay a modest entrance fee.
