Very nice campus and the architecture is wonderful. The main attraction here, though, is the Book of Kells. The exhibit is very detailed and well done. To see the actual Book of Kells is breathtaking.

If you're visiting Trinity College to see the Book of Kells, stick around afterwards to simply wander the grounds for a little while. It's a nice way to relax if you've had a busy day of tourism.

We had a doctoral history student conducting our tour of the campus, then we went to the amazing library and the book of Kells. It was pouring rain for the campus tour but still worth it. You would need a guide to know the history of the campus and be able to ask questions and get answers.

Lovely Georgian Uni campus. Books of Kells is in the Library here, well worth a visit if you're interested in this sort of history. Guided walking tours available throughout the day.

Had a slow meander through the grounds and was impressed with the buildings and architecture on view. There are many organised tours and lots of people following umbrellas, listening to information relayed in many languages. The queue for the 'Book Of Kells' was horrendous and we decided not to bother but it was still worth an hour or so for... More

Had a great student tour here. A few quid for an hour of fascinating history and beautiful buildings. Far better than wandering round blind. Included the Book of Kells visit in the library. Our guide was very funny and interesting.

Amazing architecture on these grounds! I wish the library wasn't so packed i would have loved to see that. The wait was more than an hour, I suggest you go early.

We all went to see the Book of Kells. The most impressive was the Long Room in the old library. Worth the trip alone

World-class university nestled into the bustling city of Dublin. You enter through the front gates to a magnificent campus with prestigious stone buildings and the iconic Campanella in the center. You can hop on a student-led tour or walk around on your own. The highlight is the library which houses the Book of Kells exhibit and the Trinity College library.... More
