The Burns is another terrific place to visit while at Boston College. it is known for its sizable and important Irish and Irish American collection of books, manuscripts and papers. It is housed in an architecturally stunning Gothic building and has a knowledgable staff who encourages questions and exploration. Highly recommended!
