Dún Laoghaire Carnegie Library was built in 1912 and celebrated its centenary in 2012. A significant amount of the original ornate features of the library have survived, including the classically –designed entrance, the copper cupola, the elegant parquet floors and timber wainscotting. Dún Laoghaire Library has a specialist local history section and handles many genealogical enquiries.

Please be informed that requests to dlr Local History service will be dealt with at the earliest convenience but responses may take a few days.
