“Amazing experience.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

The ancient library host thousands and thousands of old books. The very tall libraries and hundreds of shelves reminded me of some of the scenes from the Harry Potter movies.

“An absolute MUST if you're in Dublin”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

We really enjoyed viewing the Book of Kells and the Long Library at Trinity College. Get there early and the line does get quite long!

“Trinity college and book of Kells”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013 via mobile

The college and grounds are a lovely place to visit. The old library houses the Book of Kells and is a very busy stopping spot. Go early or you will be in a very long line to enter. Bring rain gear as weather is unpredicatble.

The Book of Kells exposition is well worth the price for admission. There is plenty to read about the throughout the exposition before you are led to the room with the actually book of Kells.

Fascinating history and worth seeing!

“Beautiful Long Hall and Book of Kells”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

How could you go to Dublin and not visit the grounds of Trinity College. The Long Library (featured in Harry Potter) was spectacular to see. Walls lined with old books stacked high. It is a must see. The Book of Kells was also a treat to see. We didn't experience a line, but I understand the lines can be really long. Again, you must do this if you are spending any time in Dublin.
