The French Library is back!

After a successful and well-deserved makeover during summer, we are now open again to the general public. With a bright, redesigned and multiform space, digital tablets and all of our collections, the new library will be a vital addition to the expansion of French culture in Ireland. Our digital portal, Culturethèque, is now up and running, ready to offer over 150,000 French books, magazines, music, culture, tutorials and much more! Our weekly and monthly workshops are waiting for you too!
