Ireland's oldest public library has the sober feel of a place of serious scholarship. It was built in 1701 as a library, and a library it remains over 300 years later. The Queen Anne style building still has its original oak bookshelves, worn from the fingers of generations of readers. Visitors are required to pay a modest entrance fee.
