Trinity is an oasis of calm in the throbbing heart of Dublin. From the quad to the library, the Book of Kells to the sports areas this is truly a magical place.

Historic place to visit, quite enjoyable to walk around. If you have the time, you must visit the Book of Kells, if this is your sort of thing. If not, then just take in the scenary.

The tour is done by actual students of the College We learn about the history of the place and some fun facts about life on the campus. The place is beautiful, both full of history and full of life. The visit ends in the Old Librairy and the book of Kells > really a place to see

Just by chance we noticed that there was a group rate that was half the price of regular admission and since we had 10 people, we bought the group rate. it has to be purchased by one person, which worked fine, and then everyone paid up back. The Book Of Kells is amazing to think of how it was made... More

Staying at the nearby Westin Hotel..really busy streets with lots of road works, traffic and hustle and bustle. Great place to get away from the madding crowds and enjoy the relative peace and quiet. Lovely old buildings on the campus and a sense of history about the place which is Ireland's oldest university. As I did not get to see... More

The site is beautiful with great architecture, if you add the incredible alumni, including Oscar Wilde, and Samuel Beckett; it is a must visit if you are in Dublin.

This should be in everyone's travel plans. The campus was beautiful and when you get into see the Book of Kells it is breathtaking. The long room on the way out of the tour is incredible, the sight and the smell of so many books and history..

the College itself is a mix of modernity and tradition, with this kind of life of young students everywhere. But the must-see is the library, Book of Khelf included. Impressive, beautiful.

Living in the US nothing other significant has a history like this college. We had a tour led by a doctorate student which made it very interesting. He had the history of the building and people responsible for the development of the the college. He also could tell us what it was like to attend as a student. Obviously when... More
