Beautiful place to see in Dublin. The campus is beyond words. So much history and so much to see. They have a self serve cafeteria across the campus if you want to stop for a tea or bite. This is an active campus and college.

The college itself is not that big of a deal, pretty much like many other old colleges in Europe. The old library was worth the visit. I am a scientist, for me the Book of Kells did not say much (and the display was hard...More

While students are the same, this college houses an amazing library, the likes of which you would see in a a Harry Potter movie. Had a lunch in the dining hall..open to all. And went around campus to see the old architecture.

The guide was very funny. Daniel is a student himself and has some stories from the actual students life to tell. Nevertheless the tour was informative. I'd do that tour again.

You can get the tickets for the Library tour online, at a kiosk or wait in line. Well worth it! The Book of Kells is a great exhibit and the library is breathtaking.

Unfortunately The Book Of Kells section had to be closed that day. But you could still the exhibits for 1/2 price. The long room library is worth the 5euros it’s self. Amazing.

Most hotels you have booked to stay have a luggage room and will store your luggage until it's time to check in. We arrived in Dublin at 7:00am, took a taxi to our hotel, dropped our luggage off then went to Trinity College... More
