Marsh Library Recommended Recommended : Michelin's recommendations

The first public library in Ireland was built in 1701 by archbishop Narcissus Marsh. There are 25 000 volumes here: four benefactors including the founder himself allowed works relating to the sciences and mathematics to be kept here, along with texts in foreign languages, incunabula and works of Protestant theology and polemics. The valuable books can be consulted in three «cages» protected by wire screens.
