๐Ÿ€[Irish Week 2.0] What to do in Ireland: visit a Library in a Church

Just a 10 minute bus ride separate Oranmore from Galway and, even if it's a very small center, you should definitely pay a visit!
Beside Oranmore Castle (right in Oranmore's centre) and Rinville Park (5 minute by car), one of the particularities of the town is its Library.
What could make a small town library so interesting, you ask? Well, is the fact that it is a deconsecrated church a good enough reason? 
Because Oranmore Library not only used to be a church, but it still inside a cemetery! It may look like a wierd thing and the fact that in Ireland it rains the majority of the time could give to the place a dark and disturbing vibe, but...it's the opposite!
The place is always crowded with children and people going in and out, the librarians and their assistents are welcoming and always smiling so the feeling you'll have won't be of a cold and death place!
If you like unconventional spots and are in the Galway area, go check Oranmore...there're cute little cafรจs and pubs (of course!) for all tastes. And after that go for a walk to Rinville Park! When there you can relax and enjoy a magnificent view of the bay!

I hope I intrigued you!
