“Lots on campus to see and do for tourists”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2013

if its sunny, head to the Pav, the bar in front of the cricket pitch. Must sees are: the book of Kells, the old Library, you can get walking tours of Trinity which are great value.

“Too expensive to see the library”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2013

I just wanted to see the library. It cost me 9 euro. Half of the library was block due to some kind of lecture going on when I visited it. The room is very dark. You can't take pictures. Not worth the money.

“A Dublin Institution Worth Visiting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2013

We spent a couple of hours on the Trinity College campus, viewing the impressive buildings and monuments. In addition, we visited the beautiful Library and and saw the Book of Kells exhibit. When in Dublin, a visit to Trinity College is a must. There is no fee to visit the campus; there is, however, a fee to enter the Book of Kells exhibit in the Library.

This is a huge collection of old books housed in an imposing library. It was okay for a quick visit.
