Had a wonderful stroll through the grounds. We stood in line, in the rain to see the book of Kells, which was worth it, if you are interested. Some in our group were not and did not wait, however, I definitely recommend it.

I am aware that most people would go to see the Book of Kells in Trinity college but the Long Liberary is must see, particularly for "Harry Potter" fans - there is simple nothing quite like it|

Unfortunately, we were here on a Sunday so could not get into the beautifully preserved old building to see the Book of Kells.

Very central, cheap, easy, beautiful surrounds, extremely helpful staff. A bit of noise from traffic and people at night if window is open but a small price to pay. Would definitely recommend. Went back for a second stay I liked it so much.

Had to wait in a long queue. Ticket costs 13 euro. Exhibition with some pages of book of Kells was okay. The old library however was worth the wait and the cost. Very impressive.

I think it is one of my favourite place in Dublin. The old library is amazing really beautiful. However a little expensive to visit it 10€ with student price. For me it was a lot. I didn't have any interest about the book of Kells...More

Hi, you can get ticket inside the bookstore. The queue is not that long when we got there. No need to worry about getting a ticket.
