The Old Library (The Long Room)

4 saves

Recommendation by Lemi

The Trinity College Old Library is a beloved cultural landmark in Dublin, Ireland. It hosts a collection of rare books, local literature, and the world-famous “Book of Kells” (a hand-drawn manuscript of the Gospel in Latin). Its Long Room, built in dark wood, is the library’s most photogenic spot. In the right angle, dead center, it looks like an endless room with infinite rows of shelves and arched ceilings. White marble busts of great philosophers, writers, and influential men flank each side of the hall like guardians of the knowledge within.
