Trinity College Library (Dublin)
Location: Trinity College, Dubin
Description: Trinity College Dublin is the oldest University in Ireland, founded in 1592 by Queen Elizabeth I. Situated in the heart of a busy European capital, Trinity is famous for graduates such as Swift, Goldsmith, Wilde and Beckett. A visit to Trinity with its majestic 18th century buildings and squares is like stepping back into another age, an opportunity to experience the peace and quiet of another era. The Old Library built between 1712-1732 was renovated to coincide with the College’s 400th anniversary in 1992. Visitor facilities include The Treasury - which houses the Book of Kells and other early Christian manuscripts; The Long Room - the largest single chamber library in the world, containing 200,000 of the library’s oldest books in its oak bookcases; an area which features the Turning Darkness Into Light exhibition, and a Library Shop. Please note pre-paid tickets do not mean you can skip the queue.
