“Lovely Piece of Dublin History”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

went to Trinity College to see the book of Kells, ended up taking the student tour(since it was only a 1 Pound more) and it was well worth it, the Student guides are great, and some of the best ambassadors for Trinity College as a whole.

“Great tour with recent graduate.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

However, the Book of Kells was poorly displayed, too expensive, and the wait was too long. Do yourself a favor and skip it. Trinity is fine, however...

“College Park on a Summer Day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

Trinners is a must for visitors, just stroll through it's ancient arch for a bit of quiet from the city.
The buildings are not too intimidating and the cobbles are a gem!!
Call early for the Book of Kells.

“Historic attraction in the heart of Dublin...worth the visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

Beautiful campus full of history. I would recommend a walking tour led by the students themselves. At the end you can see the Book of Kells from the 800's and the Long Room. This has to be the most beautiful library on earth...

“Great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

Buy the 10 euro tour, very informative! Book of Kells was interesting. It would be nice if there was some kind of queue to see it.
