St Patrick’s Close

The Library is a short stroll from the main shopping areas of Dublin’s city centre. Most of the hop-on hop-off buses pass our door!

“Great stories and picturesque … the guides are great, and who wouldn’t love a reading cage? Highly recommend going”

“Petite mais sublime. Les personnes qui y travaillent sont très gentils. Il y a des fascicules de plusieurs langue pour d’avantages d’infos.”

“Mesmerising atmosphere taking you head first into the years long forgotten”



“Marsh’s Library is the first public library in Ireland (1707) so you cannot miss it. In addition, you get a personalised interaction with local guides who explain in multiple languages the history of the place. One of my favourite spots in Dublin !! Strongly recommended!!”
