Seeing the library was very interesting, but the real treasure was The Book Of Kells. It was beautifully illustrated and the colors are still vibrant. The architecture of the college is great and there are amazing works of art scattered throughout the campus. I highly recommend everyone visit when in Dublin.

Lots of little details in the architecture of this campus make it worth spending at least an hour exploring.

I visited in the early evening to see the Book of Kells but unfortunately it was already closed. The Trinity College grounds were larger than they appeared from the street. The architecture was quite beautiful. I was very fortunate to have caught the college chapels choir practicing before mass. Their voices were angelic. If you have the time, stop in... More

Went to view the book of kells, however the original wasn't there and admission half price. But don't let that put you off, the grounds of this campus are awesome, the museum worth a visit and the staff helpful.

We visited while on a SANDEMANs walking tour. Very impressive place to look around. We are big fans of the film Educating Rita which was filmed here in 1983 so it was great to have a wander round.

The Georgian building is just the facade. Get in and wander through the different patios inside the campus. Take the guided tour!

We didn't expect it to be as big as it really is. It is located on a somewhat strange location. In the middle of the centre...! The science galery of Dublin is also to be found in Trinity College, it is worth a visit.

You can easily get historical information and a guide to Trinity College online -- so just go in and walk around. For a small fee, the brief, student-run tours are interesting (or you can just stand close by and listen in!).
