The Old Library at Dublin’s Trinity College

I usually only post book reviews on this blog, but I’m making an exception for the old library at Trinity College in Dublin. You can tour it in combination with the Book of Kells. The Book of Kells is cool, but the library is simply amazing.

The books are so old and so beautiful

The library’s architecture is gorgeous.

And the books. So many incredible books stored on the shelves with the biggest at the bottom and the smallest at the top.

Busts are scattered throughout the library.

If you ever have a chance to go to Dublin, the old library is a must see. The books, the architecture and walking where Oscar Wilde, Bram Stoker, Samuel Beckett, Jonathan Swift, and so many others studied makes it totally worth it.
