National Library of Ireland
The highlight of this historic library is the great domed
reading room, which has been home to many Irish students, including
James Joyce. The library also contains a heraldic museum, which
exhibits coats of arms and banners, but of most interest to
tourists may be the genealogical office, where staff can help trace
any Irish roots. Its consultation service on ancestry is available
Monday to Friday 10am to 12.30 pm and 2pm to 4.30pm.
