360° Tour of the Reading Room

Following the curved stone stairway to the first floor visitors arrive into the impressive domed Reading Room. It is horse-shoe shaped and almost 50 feet high in the centre. It is lit by a large central dome and side windows high in the walls. Above the lower walls, shelved for reference books, there is a plaster frieze of cherubs by Harrisons of Dublin.
