Although photography is not permitted in the Book of Kells exhibit, it is allowed in the Long Room of the Old Library. The Long Room was built between 1712 and 1732. The upper gallery was added in the 1850s to accommodate the growing collection.

The Long Room is believed to have been the model for the Jedi library in George Lucas’s film Attack of the Clones.

Staircase to the gallery was not open to the public. Pity–I would have loved to photograph it from above!
