The Ballybunion Library building was once St. Augustine's (Church of Ireland), a single-storey Gothic Revival style church. The walls are of snecked limestone with Portland stone dressings. The entrance is through a projecting porch.
What's interesting is that St. Augustine's was originally built at Rattoo, near Ballyduff in 1879. However, after the Church of Ireland structure at Ballybunion was knocked down in the 1950s, it was decided to move St Augustine's to Ballybunion. It was actually dismantled stone by stone, transported and reconstructed on the current site in its exact original state.
