Fast-track Easy Access Book of Kells Tour with Dublin Castle

562 reviews
Avoid waiting in long lines at the Book of Kells—one of the most important highlights of Irish heritage dating back to the ninth century—on this early-access tour. Meet at the easy-to-find Trinity College in central Dublin, and set off listening to the elaborate history from a guide who unlocks secret mysteries of the book. End your tour at Dublin Castle where your guide dives even deeper into Irish culture and heritage.

Very nice museum where you get a lot of information about this important figure of Irish and world literature. And the stately mansion in which the museum is set is worth a visit in its own right.

Partner and I came for the Joyce walking tour. Unfortunately, the walk had to end early due to the unrelenting rain but our guide kindly offered for us to listen to the rest of the tour from the warmth and comfort of the Joyce centre with a cup of tea or coffee. The staff went out of their way to make us feel comfortable and make the experience worthwhile despite being unfortunately rained out. For example, my partner was completely drenched by the time we got to the centre and the staff were kind enough to allow him to borrow one of their shirts whilst his dried by the fire. The hospitality and kindness alongside the knowledge of the staff was above and beyond anything we were anticipating. Our guide was brilliant- well spoken, knowledgeable, and very passionate. Such a fantastic experience for anyone visiting Dublin and I would highly recommend it! :)

I went with my girlfriend as I am a big Joyce fan. I enjoyed the experience more than she did. Pre-knowledge of the author’s life and work makes a big difference. That said, our guide was lovely. She recited passages from Joyce’s writing and even performed songs. Great for fans! Recommended highly to them.

Interesting displays with a lot of information about Joyce's life and writing. For example, there is an interactive display with a timeline of the events in Ulysses. I was not able to join a walking tour, but I still enjoyed visiting the centre. Entry fee includes an audio guide.

If you're a Joycian, casual or expert or just curious about his works, try the walking tour. Guide was friendly and not overly pedantic.
