Good that it was raining and we decided to do the indoors stuff. Having read so much of positive feedback on TA about the library, we decided to go for it. Thank God it was raining, and thank God that we went for it! The library is a real treasure, and not to be missed attraction on your visit to Dublin. Where else would you find such rare manuscripts, papyrus documents dated thousands of years in history, the lovely binding works across the centuries, the various manuscripts of all the major world religions? Even if you are not a history buff, I can guarantee that you will love it. This place is so refreshingly different.
It also has a cute little gift shop, where you can buy some really interesting pocket note books, replicating some of the art you would've seen inside. Hats off to the passion of the man who devoted his life in creating such an outstanding private collection!
And the better part - it is right in the city centre and can be done in an hour's time. And the best part - it is free!
