From Dublin.

The impressive architecture of the Trinity College Library in Dublin is perfect for long perspective shots.  The columns, rows of books, and curved ceiling  of the “nave” create some fascinating intersection points.  This is called the Long Room for obvious reasons.  It houses the medieval Brian Boru Harp in addition to many, many old, rare books.

The Long Room is part of the Old Library, which also houses the famous illuminated manuscript of the Gospels, the Book of Kells.

It also may look familiar to Star Wars fans as it bears a striking similarity to the Jedi Archives as shown in Episode II: Attack of the Clones.
