Its a nice grounds, so if the weather is good its worth coming in for a stroll. They do tours on campus and if you come on a weekend it will be mainly tourists walking around here. If you are in the area, doesn't hurt to check out even though its not something you have to see.

We visited here very quickly, too much to see & do here with the queue for the book of Kelly's really long! Library looked amazing but was closed on the day we visited. Lovely arictecture and steeped in history, worth a visit as you can mooch around at no cost.

This campus was simply lovely. Being hundreds of years old, it was great to just walk around and get a sense of the deep history. The campus also houses the Book of Kells and the Old Library, two must-sees for visiting Dublin. Travel Tip: buy the tour of the campus that includes the Book of Kells and Old Library exhibit,...

Lovely building, there are tour guides or you can walk in and have a look for yourself, it wasn't too busy of a day so had a nice stroll around to enjoy the surroundings.

The campus is amazing and I was really jealous of the students, for having an opportunity to study in such an amazing place.

The area around the college is open to the public and you can walk around and enjoy the architecture and greenery. If you are a history buff you could also visit the book of Kells exhibit which is a very old version of the bible.Close by is also Grafton street, one of the main shopping streets in Dublin.

The school sits in the middle of the city and the walk through the arch welcomes you with a large wide open are of grass, trees and walk ways. It offers you a walk around the campus and enjoy it's architecture and culture.

Great historic buildings and grounds providing you with a real appreciation of the history for this Academic institution. I didn't visit the museum as it's not for me, but we had a great lunch in the main canteen as it's of very good quality and probably the best value lunch available in the city! It's a must visit and it's... More
