Trinity College is the most beautiful college/university campus I have ever been to. I wish I went here, and I'm still holding out hope! They have a campus shop where you can buy t-shirts, jumpers, key rings and bags with the university logo on. As most people will know you can also see the Book of Kells at the University.

The chapel at Trinity is inter denominational. The Choir are amazing and Thursday is when they perform. The Grounds are a pleasant escape from the hustle and bustle of Dublin. Some good photo opportunities at the various gates and Arches.. You can also visit the book of Kells

The Trinity Library was the highlight of my trip. Be sure to check it out! The tour guides are wonderful but the college is surrounded with noise and congestion. You may miss out on some of the details during the tour.

Such history! I wish I could have gone to a school such as Trinity. I think by visiting this school with a teenager, you can give them a sense of just how important education is; not to mention the fact that if you are from another country your child could have an amazing opportunity to study abroad!

Iconic spot in Dublin. When walking around, feel surrounded by the magnificent heritage and history of this spectacular college. Great Spot for a stroll after downtown brunch. Architecture +1 History +1 Quietness +1

Away from the immediate hustle and bustle of downtown Dublin, the Trinity College campus offers a sense of yesteryear and tranquility. Even though central pathways can be fairly busy, it is easy to slip to the peripheries of this beautiful green zone and enjoy its peacefulness.

I did my undergraduate degree here so I'm a tad biased but this place is just brilliant. And so picturesque!! It's right in the centre of Dublin so can't be missed. Just enter through the Front Arch onto Front Square and experience the stillness of the college grounds...the busy city centre seems miles away!! Wander over the cobble stones among... More

it seems to be in "Dead poet society" and the strange thing is that tourists walk near real students!
