Trinity college is a quite oasis in centre of city. The college is of a different time. The road ways are cobbled the squares full of seating to sit and watch the world pass by. This is a working university where the public can wander in and enjoy

Ranked 61st in the World this University in the centre of Dublin was established in 1592 and at that time it was outside the City walls. Now it is surrounded by the city and a must see whenever you come to Dublin. The library is unique and the college has 16,500 students.

Well worth visiting. Apart from The Book of Kells,and the extensive library,Trinity College or Dublin University, is an academic oasis in the bustling center of the city of Dublin. Even to walk through the beautiful grounds of Trinity, gives one a sense of the beauty of this university campus, and also gives one a sense of the history and the... More

Its known for the wonderful Book of Kells, and that is well worth a visit, but if you can visit the grounds in the next couple weeks you will also see a wonderful display of cherry blossom. Take a break and bring some lunch to have under the trees. Magical!

Trinity College is rather special. For the visitor to Ireland's capital city, it is an oasis of calm right in the centre of Dublin. It is very historic, dating from 1592 when Queen Elizabeth 1 founded it - to ensure that Irish students could be educated in Ireland, rather than going to France or other countries abroad.
