Berkeley Library, Dublin 2

Trinity College is entitled to a free copy of every book published in either Ireland or the United Kingdom so there are nearly 4½ million books held in the various libraries both on and off campus. To the right of the Old Library is a more modern library building, the Berkeley Library, dating from 1967. It was named after philosopher and historian, Bishop George Berkeley (1685 - 1753) who was both a student and a teacher at Trinity. Berkeley Campus of the University of California and the adjoining city is named after him.

Over the past 10 years I spend an average of 190 nights per annum in hotels throughout Europe and the USA, and the Trinity is my favourite hotel of all! The friendly staff and the accommodation make for an enjoyable stay.


Really nice hotel, staff very helpful. Bed very comfy and rooms nice and warm, would recommend it to all.
