I love Trinity College. Its steeped in Irish history and is a lovely place to visit and walk around. Anyone lucky enough to have studied there will tell you of how proud they were to have done so and follow in the footsteps of so many renowned Irish men and women. Its home also to the Book of Kells and... More

The Long Room is Very Cool and Packed to the Gills with Irish History. The Book of Kells is rather unremarkable, and if you have a similar visit to mine, you'll be shuffled past it very quickly

The trinity college is in itself a very beautiful place. The first impression as you walk through the gate is a sense of an intense history and the scale and grandeur of the place. The cost of the entry into the book of Kells exhibit, along with a tour of the college costs 13 euros. I think the tour went... More

Trinity College is such an icon of Dublin that it certainly is a must-see attraction in Dublin. A fair warning, however, the lines are long and the library visit, especially the Book of Kells portion, is very crowded. The actual library area was my favorite part. The 20 min tour they provide can also be recommended. Nice gift shop as... More

This is part of the organised tour of the college and the part which attracts the most interest is the Book of Kells. There is usually a long que for this. The best time to avoid this to reach early or late in the afternoon

Loved the tour of the library and really enjoyed seeing the Book of Kells. It was kind of hard to get too close to the book due to the amount of people, but was still a good experience if you are patient.

My first experience in a European Library. We had to see the Book of Kells and naturally visit the library and the wait did not disappoint us. We went in July and took the tour guide visit of the Trinity campus followed by the visit to the library. It has books on display. I would love to spend years just... More

Trinity College was at the top of the list for my wife and I. Her family had a hand in writing Irish law and mine had a hand in breaking it. It was busy with tourists and students but it was worth the wait. While there is no charge for the college, there is a huge line to see the... More

Long lines, expensive tickets but... A must when visiting the city, with the Kells Book and the college's architecture.
