It may be a surprise to learn one of the most frequently visited places in Dublin is a library! Housed in the prestigious Trinity College, the Old Library dates back to the 18th century and is one of the most beautiful libraries in the world. For Star Wars fans, it may already look familiar as the Long Room of the library was the inspiration behind the Jedi Library! Inside, you'll find not only incredible architecture and over 20,000 of the library's oldest books, but also the medieval harp used as the symbol of Ireland (and Guinness!), and an original Proclamation of the Irish Republic read during the 1916 Easter Rising. In addition to the Long Room of the library, your entry ticket also grants access to view the famed Book of Kells. Dating back to the 9th century, this gospel manuscript exhibits some of the most detailed, intricate, and extravagant illustrations of all surviving gospel manuscripts. The Long Room and Book of Kells are open 7 days a week. Tickets can be purchased online. As the Library is such a popular Dublin attraction, it is best to book tickets in advance. Tickets can be purchased solely to view the library and Book of Kells or you can take a full tour of Trinity Campus which includes entry to both exhibits. Allow for 30-40 minutes in the library to view the Long Room and Book of Kells. Image Credit: Alboomen on Pixabay, Tomáš Nožina on Unsplash, Gigglekid on Pixabay
