Waste of time and money
Dec 2020 • Friends
As a student the place is a waste of time and money. They rest solely on their name and nothing else. Don't waste you time. You can do better. But the tour of the library is good but that was it. They will act so prestigious and never are able to back it up with actions or meeting basic promises of what to expect. But never really take students complaints seriously they listen but nothing is done, they will look out for their employees.

Lovely old campus
Feb 2020
The entrance to the campus off the busy street really makes you feel like you're walking back in time. Beautiful campus to walk around. The students were friendly and polite. Don't miss the Old Library with the Book of Kells exhibit.

Trinity College
Oct 2020 • Couples
Trinity College is a worldwide landmark in the heart of the city at College Green. It featured in the movie Educating Rita starring Michael Caine and Julie Waters.
Trinity is popular with Irish students and students from abroad due to its superb reputation for top class higher level education.
It is a beautiful group of building and inside it’s hard to believe you are minutes away from a large capital city.
The college houses the famous Irish manuscript, The Book of Kells

Again, again and again.

Student, art lover, science freak, tourist or resident - this is a place you'll go again and again. Tucked away in the center of things, Trinity College is great spot for everyone. If you want to explore Book of Kelts and Old Library, an amazing science Galery, biological/animal galery, do a photo tour, or relax on the bench - this is a perfect spot for you. Tips for tourists - there douvenir shop is a bit more expensive then other ones, but if you are looking for a right, high quality product - which is telling Irish history in contemporary way - shop there.

Must to see in Dublin
Sep 2019
This place is a must to see in Dublin. Academy, history and culture all in one place. Also, in a super hot summer day it was a nice break, as there are several shaded trees.

Nice buildings, well-kept grounds

Make sure to stop by Trinity College to view the historic buildings and nice, green, well-kept grounds. Nice place to sit and take a break from walking around downtown Dublin.

Trinity is ranked 1st in Ireland. It’s situated in the centre of Ireland’s vibrant capital Dublin. Trinity’s stunning campus is home to a community of scholars from around the world. It’s open to tourists free of cost. You must visit book of Kells museum if you are in love with books.
