Not a long waiting time to get in. Very interesting tour of the Book of Kells and a visit to the amazing library.

We took a short tour guided by Trinity student before going to see The book of Kells. I don't know if ir's a "must", but it very worth taking, we loved every minute, thanks to the wonderful humour and artfullness of the guide. He made the dull history exciting.

We did an unguided tour at the exhibition "The Book of Kells". In the entrance price, also the library is included. Very impressing.

With the price of admission (10 Euro) you get a walking tour of the grounds of Trinity by a current Trinity student. After your 30 minute tour you then get admitted into the LIbrary where the book of Kells is stored. The exhibit is beautiful and features other books and illluminations. No cameras are allowed inside the library, but there are plenty of great books to purchase in the gift shop at the end.
