The famous Old Library

One of my main destinations in Dublin was this old library and its Long Room. I took care of a ticket first thing in the morning and just made it before the massive stream of tourists entered the room.

The library began with the founding of Trinity College in 1592. The 65-metre-long (213 ft) Long Room is the main chamber of the Old Library and it is lined with fourteen marble busts. Many of the busts are of great philosophers, writers, and men who supported the college. The most outstanding bust in the collection is of the writer Jonathan Swift.
