The Long Room, Dublin, Ireland

A library is part wonder, part solitude and all friend.

The Long Room is part of the Old Library within Trinity College Dublin. It was built early in the 17th century and holds approximately 200,000 historical books. The library also receives a free copy of every book published in the Republic of Ireland. At the end of each row of books resides a marble bust of famous philosophers, writers and supporters of Trinity College. As you can tell from the pictures, it’s an architectural masterpiece. It’s also home to various historical artifacts. Beautiful, no?
