The Curious books of Marsh's Library

Join us for a virtual tour of Marsh’s Library and the curious books within.

Marsh’s Library is a beautifully preserved building from the early 18th century, one of the last in Ireland still used for its original purpose. Opened as Ireland’s first public library in 1707, the original oak bookcases house more than 25,000 rare and fascinating books. Famous readers have included Jonathan Swift, Bram Stoker, and James Joyce.

During the virtual tour, discover some of the more unusual and curious items in the collection!
