Its pretty beautiful but a bit pricey for what is essentially a walk down one room. We had to queue for quite sometime. I wouldn't go again but im glad I went once

I started with a student guided tour and the guide made some good jokes to keep it light. He gave great background of the buildings and the politics and issues behind the construction. After the tour we were free to explore the library and that was a great experience. The first part had a great history of the book and... More

This place had a lot more to offer then just the Book of Kells. The Book is really cool, but the rest of the library made you feel like you were in Hogwarts! Pretty neat place!

The Book of Kells and The Long Room - a definite must if on a visit to Dublin - something not to be missed! The works of art contained in The Book of Kells is unbelievable!

Book of Kells Interesting but I enjoyed going upstairs to the library and reading pages of the books that were on display. Disliked having to wait outside in the rain and wind for 30minutes to get in.

If you're visiting Dublin you absolutely must visit Trinity College and specifically its incredible Old Library. For ten euros or less, you get to view the remarkable Book of Kells while also learning about its creation and preservation. Then, visitors can visit the Long Room and marvel at the rows and rows of meticulously kept books. The walk-through takes about... More
