Armagh Public Library

4 star Museum
Part of the Saint Patrick's Trail
One of the oldest libraries in Ireland, Armagh Public Library was established in 1771 by Archbishop Robinson. In addition to the Archbishop’s personal library which contains 17th and 18th century books on a wide range of subjects, there are many rare and valuable books such as incunabula, first editions, and illuminated manuscripts. The Library is also a registered museum and holds prints, ancient Irish artefacts, gems, coins, as well as other objects. The collections are on view, both in the Library's Long Room and in No 5 Vicars’ Hill, the former registry. The collections are kept alive and current by acquisitions of items on the following subjects: local history (Armagh City and county), church history, St. Patrick, and Jonathan Swift.
