Linen Hall Library

Founded in 1788, Belfast’s oldest library is a focal point for the city’s cultural community. Join the saints and scholars as they leaf through the books or simply enjoy those fantastic views across the City Hall. If you’re into the history of the Troubles, seek out its unrivalled Northern Ireland Political Collection of books, posters, leaflets and propaganda. A gift shop, cafe, tours, readings and lectures all add to the library’s effortless charm.
