2012 We didn't see the Book of Kells. The line was incredibly long. We would have had to get there much earlier than we did. The campus architecture was impressive and somewhat intimidating. It was simply beautiful

Trinity College is a peaceful place for a walk in the middle of downtown Dublin. So when you need to walk off that Guinness you just had at Temple Bar or just need a reprieve, head over to the campus for a stroll. There are plenty of interesting buildings and sculptures to see. As well as, benches to sit on... More

The architecture, grounds and location make this an ideal place to start your tour of Dublin. And afterwards take any of the side streets to a local pub for a pint of Guinness!

one of the most iconic european educational institutions, it is also worth visiting because of the rich architecture of their buildings, monuments and gardens. Unfortunately the Book of Kells / Old Library exhibition was closed at the time of our visit (new year's eve) ... hope to make it next time

I had 36 hours in Dublin for a work even and only a few hours to spend sight-seeing. As you walk into the gates of Trinity College Dublin, you are taken back through history. The wooden doors are massive and 300 years old! Pop for the tour...it is well worth it and the ticket gets you into the Book of... More

I stopped by Trinity College to see the books of Kells, which was illuminating, but the highlight was a trip to visit the old library, what a fantastic, captivating room. The campus at Trinity is an oasis in the middle of the city and a nice spot to relax a bit.
