A beautiful campus rich in history and tradition. The Book of Kells is not to be missed and neither is the Long Room library. Most impressive and make sure to see the ancient harp. Booking ahead is a must to avoid the long queue.

Several historic buildings, statues, sculptures as well as a park and gardens are on the grounds of Trinity College. Enjoyed people watching and strolling the grounds. Also stopped to see the Book of Kells and the library. Great way to spend an afternoon.

It depends on when you are travelling - check the website and err on the side of caution and book a tour would be my suggestion. And leave some room to wander around Dublin City. You might want to take a walking tour or a... 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.
