Great place to walk around. A bit hard to access due to the construction. Great architecture and great photos opportunities.

The place is very nice. The library is simply incredible, breath taking. The campus is a very nice place to stay. We visited the Book of Kells. Must see place.

Trinity College was the first institute of higher learning in Ireland. A prestigious university in its own right, its campus is certainly worth the visit just to admire the beautiful buildings and lawns that checker it. While you are likely at Trinity College to visit the library and the Books of Kells (if not, then why aren’t you?), it is... More

This is a place you must visit once in your life. The history in it is great. Be careful when you walk under it's famous bell, find out why once there ; Harry Potter's library is actually Trinity College Library, don't miss it! There's also a nice chapel where alumni can get married. I caught a wedding while I was... More

Short walk on the campus, nice buildings, but you have to pay 9 euros to enter the Library. Good place to walk around on a sunny day.

We were on a tight schedule in Dublin that day. The exhibit for the Book of Kell's was closed. That was very disappointing. The college grounds are old and amazing, but you can't touch the grass. Odd in a country that rains all the time.

Absolutely amazing and a large compound. The library is beautiful! Excellent for bad as well as good weather, just visit the Book of Kells as it rains and walk about as the sky clears.

One of the seven ancient universities of Britain and Ireland and Ireland's oldest university! It was a rainy day but our tour guide was full of information, humour and knowledgeable of every aspect of the college. Discussions and explanations were given in small porticoes to keep us dry. As the rain lifted some, we would rush over to be under... More

Don't make a special trip. As you tour Dublin you can't help but walk by it and through it on your way to other attractions. Mostly old buildings and statutes. We had lunch in the Buttery, a student hand out. It was fun to watch the students.

Thank Richard M
