The buildings are beautiful and the grounds are impeccable. We did not go to the library but we enjoyed the beautiful sculpture in front of it. Very lovely campus.

Just visiting the Uni was not as impressive as say Cambridge or Oxford (or many others for that matter) but the Long Room and Book of Kels are a different topic (separate reviews). As a Uni its nice but average.

Old College atmosphere, with the student guide bringing it to life contrasting current and historical life. Very nice campus with some good architecture. Walked into the geology building and it has an impressive foyer.

We went out for a walk on our first afternoon in Dublin as part of a Collette Vacations tour and decided to take a tour of Trinity College. Since it was just a pre-supper walk, we neglected to take a camera with us. Bad decision - this place is well-worth taking a few photos. Our tour was given by a... More

its hard to believe that this is a real (and excellent) College with all the tourists wandering around. The location, in the heart of such a vibrant city, couldn't be better. Dublin is truly a cosmopolitan city with all the benefits one gets from all the cultures coming together. The College itself is a wonder. The old buildings with modern... More

We went to Dublin on a holiday together with family and took a walk past Trinity College. It is a beautiful area with magnificent buildings and I would just love to study there! Definitely worth a visit and if you are interested in the Book of Kells, take the time to og through the museum and Library. It is beautiful.

One of the finest universities in Europe with spectacular architecture and the Book of Kells. Enjoyed just walking the grounds, but there is so much to see here. Museums, gift shop, and statues. Very peaceful and enjoyable.
