Trinity College Long Room Library

The Long Room Library is rightly counted as one of the great, most beautiful libraries in the world, and is one of Ireland's most visited attractions. It holds many rare and ancient texts, most notably The Book of Kells, The Book of Durrow, and The Book of Armagh. Over 200,000 texts are stored in the lofty vaults you see here in the 360-degree panorama. The Book of Kells is the biggest draw to the Long Room Library, an illuminated manuscript of the Four Gospels, written ca. 800AD. Another exhibit includes an original copy of the Proclamation of The Republic from The Easter Rising in 1916; also on display is the oldest Irish Harp in existence (15th C.) - the same Harp as features on Irish Euro coins.
