“Take the tour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

The walking tour given by a student was very fun, and interesting. The Book of Kells is crowded with a wait, and therefore a bit underwhelming when you finally get there--but the Long Library is very dramatic.

“Lots to Read Here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

Not only the sheer "volume" of books, (no pun intended), but the beautiful decor make this a place to see while at Trinity College. An amazing feat of architecture and a wonderful place to house the Book of Kells

“A Must Visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

You will be awed by the sheer volume of books and displays in this beautiful library. My adult son said it was a bit reminicent of Hogwart's from Harry Potter.
