A first edition of Gulliver's Travels, published in 1726 and annotated by Swift himself, is the most prized possession of the Armagh Public Library, founded in 1771 by Archbishop Robinson. Other treasures include Sir Walter Raleigh's 1614 History of the World, the Claims of the Innocents (pleas to Oliver Cromwell) and engravings by Hogarth and others.

Nearby, you can see ancient coins, early Christian artefacts and other curiosities at the Registry , a depository for Church of Ireland records.
