Marsh’s Library houses important collections of European books and manuscripts from the 15th to 18th centuries. When it opened in 1707 it was the first public library in Ireland. The interior of Marsh's Library has remained largely unchanged over the past 300 years, and visitors come from all over the world to admire the architecture and soak up the atmosphere. This perfectly preserved library of the early Enlightenment, with its original oak bookcases, houses more than 25,000 rare and fascinating books. A copy of the 1707 plan of the library will be provided to all visitors.
