BE INSPIRED!

The Library is open for visitors, Monday - Friday 10.00 - 13.00, 14.00 - 16.00.

We look forward to offering you a warm welcome!

Please make sure to check our events calendar for any exceptional closures before you make your trip!

There is something to inspire all the family in both the Library & No 5, such as treasure hunts, interactive touchscreens, our displays and a 3-D model of early 19th century Armagh.

In the beautiful Georgian building on 5 Vicars' Hill we have many treasures on display, including coins, gems, prints, and early Christian artefacts.

No 5 is open by prior appointment via email only.

Groups are very welcome to book a tour to both the Library and No 5.

Please check our group tours page for more information.

Our collections are available for researchers: contact the office to book a research slot, so we can have the material ready for you!
