This is no classic library. You have 3 rooms with different topics: Asian culture, 3 of the biggest religions and some sketches. I believe they are changed periodically. I recommend to go here well rested so you can enjoy the texts. We went after a walk in the city, visiting Dublinia, the church and the castle, so we weren't really in the mood for reading.
On the plus side, this is a free attraction, but donations are welcomed.

I regularly stop off for a wander and to browse the art. It's a very chilled out space, and there is always something interesting to find. The front grounds are also a nice place to sit in good weather, away from the hustle and bustle

A lovely treat, so many interesting things to see and learn about.
Sadly this seems to be a place visited by very few! This I cannot understand as it is so special. Maybe it was the time of day but I was only one of three people walking around!

Visit and learn.

Thank Nicholas W

I stumbled upon this gem of a museum. There is so much to see and so much 'texture' in the artifacts and although you can't touch you really learn so much about these rare artifacts.
