Reviewed 16 November 2015

There was an interesting exhibition of experimental work by a local artist, accompanied by a very informative AV presentation. The highlight for me was the "Modern Wife" exhibition - fun, but also a bit of an eye opener: to see how until relatively recently the role of women in Irish society was extremely subordinate.
There is a truly great cafe and snack bar in the basement .... with truly uncomfortable seats, though.
There are surprisingly few books, but plenty of internet access terminals - a sign of the times, I guess ....

Great place for visitors and local alike spacious layout over 3 floors makes for never looking crowded . DVD's, CD's and reference books make up the available items to view or borrow

I was staying at the Royal Marine Hotel and this is directly in front of it. It is a brand new building and I went to take a look on a rainy day. I looked at a few papers, but what shocked me was the excellent photo gallery they had there. The photos were of Ireland from the circa 1930era. Super well done and worth a visit. Locals it seems have a wonderful modern library they should be proud of.

This wonderful building opened earlier this year and is an example for cities everywhere. Beautifully situated off the Prom it takes the views into its sweep of the skyline from huge expanse of windows on each floor,daylight streams into the interior.
There is a current exhibit of photography of Frank Browne; 'A life through the lens'.
