As the only museum in Ireland to win 'European Museum of the Year' and rated consistently in the top 6 of TripAdvisor's list of 'Top things to do in Dublin,' the library's rich collections from countries across Asia, the Middle East, North Africa and Europe open a window on the artistic treasures of the great cultures and religions of the world.

A wonderful collection. A superb asset to Dublin. Well worth a visit. We are so privileged in Ireland to have such a super collection. The resto is worth a vist too, lovely pastries.

Excellent site to not only learn about Irish history but actually be in the place where much of it took place. The carpet of bonnets which pays tribute to the many women and girls imprisoned was especially moving.
