Marsh's Library is a beautifully preserved building from the early 18th century, built in the late Renaissance and early Enlightenment style. It is one of the last library buildings in Ireland still used for its original purpose.

The original oak bookcases house many literary treasures and exhibitions. Famous readers have included Jonathan Swift, Bram Stoker, and James Joyce. Some say the ghost of Archbishop Marsh roams the rooms.

Children are particularly welcome, and the library has fun activities to occupy them.

Visit the website for information on current exhibitions and its range of online resources and activities.
