It was nice to see. Skip the tour guide and see it yourself. The library was beautiful - so many different books to see. Very historic.

Johnny led our tour. Very well done. Represents the college and himself as polished and knowledgeable. Followed by the book of Kells visit in the library. I would have liked the book itself to be better displayed so that visitors could see it without the crowding around the case.

I always wanted to visit this college and was finally given a chance. Though it was an outside visit only, it was enjoyable.

The oldest university in Ireland, Trinity is a treasure trove of history. They maintain a copy of every book ever printed in Ireland. The library is massive. Recommend.

This is well worth a visit and a nice walk round the grounds. Architecture is very pleasing. There is also a very nice gift shop where you can also pay yo see an old book.
