Great library with amazing resources. If you are carrying a bag you will be asked to store it in the free lockers. You are not allowed to take picture, but is worth the visit.

Getting a readers card for the National Library made it doing my thesis almost worthwhile. The building is absolutely stunning – rows and rows of study desks with green lamps and leather, surrounded by oak paneling. One of the greatest treasures in Dublin. And, this might sound weird, but the toilets are awesome. It's like stepping back in time.

Can't sit in and read, which should be an option in any library, even if it is as precious as this one. Dublin seems to be full of libraries to look at, which makes me, as a passionate reader, quite angry. Nonetheless (or moreover!!) it is gorgeous.
