Aside from the Book of Kells exhibit in the old library, there's not much to do on campus except admire the Georgian architecture.

A lot of Irish history. I like it.

the library is the best part. Old harps and books.

But the college central court is also very nice.

We were lucky to have Stephen, an Honours student who led us on a tour of the college. He made it very interesting, and explained the history of the college very well. We finished our tour at the library and spent a wonderful hour looking at the Book of Kells and the explanatory literature and artwork. The finale of our visit was to the Long Room. It was amazing, so many books - a copy of every book published in United Kingdom and Ireland.

A must see for all tourists and Irish alike. The Book of Kells on show and other ancient and valuable scripts. Shop are a bit hectic on entry and exit, long queues in summer so go early. The gardens are well manicured and old building and archway a bit of our history. Newer Uni building looks like a car parking facility, no joke
