Absolutely loved the whole atmosphere in this beautiful building, but the library is breathtaking! Row after row of medieval books, stacked to the ceiling. A bookworm's dream.Look but don't touch though, forbidden obviously.

If you are in Dublin, then a Trinity College tour must be on your things to do. The place is magical and the tour guides are outstanding at bringing you close to the rich history this special college contains.

Stayed 3 nights here as accommodation in Dublin is very expensive and from the trip advisor reviews thought this place would be ideal ( at just over £100 per night). Good points : slap bang in the centre of Dublin with everything within walking distance and they have a reasonably priced restaurant on site serving a reasonable breakfast ( although... More

My daughter was doing a summer study with NYU at Trinity and we thought we'd pick her up, spend a few days in Dublin (my third time)and then hit the country side. We had a 3 bedroom suite with a huge living room and kitchen. Breakfast in the Buttery (on campus) was reasonable and great. Everyone was great. Showed up... More

Excellent place to wander around as a pocket campus encapsulated by city center of Dublin. This is an interesting combination of active educational functions and tourist attractions. Having seen the Book of Kells and wandered about, I don't know that this is a place to repeatedly visit as a tourist but it certainly was worth the first visit.

Beautiful place to visit! Give yourself time because there is so much to see. It can get very crowded. It is somewhat dark inside so bring your reading glasses to be able to read the descriptions.
