Beautiful campus of one of Europes older universities. Explore the beautifully designed colleges, and make sure you check out the Book of Kells which is stored in Trinity CollegeRecommended for:

Trinity College takes up a large portion of the city. I went through on my way to the south of the city. I couldn't believe how much of the city the college takes up. It's also where the Book of Kells is located.Recommended for:

How I wish I went to school here. Open spaces, tons of history, and right in the center of the city with access to the Luas. Didn't get a chance to go see The Book Of Kells (line was super long!) but just the atmosphere of the school was so nice to be in.Recommended for:

Gorgeous campus in a nice central location. A must-see in Dublin. More for the atmosphere and architecture / historical buildings than for any specific tourist sight.
The library is particularly special.Recommended for:

Trinity College Dublin (or TCD to locals) is the oldest universities in Ireland. Founded in 1592, it allows incorporation of Oxbridge degrees and vice-versa. Houses the Book of Kells and an beautiful campus in the centre of Dublin.Recommended for:

Only 60 mins from Brittas Bay, Trinity College and to the Old Library and the Book of Kells Exhibition - are a “must see” on the itinerary of all visitors to Ireland. Located in the heart of Dublin City, a walk through the cobbled stones of Trinity College Dublin will bring visitors back to the 18th century, when the magnificent Old Library building was constructed. Inside is housed the Book of Kells - a 9th-century gospel manuscript famous throughout the world. Visitors are welcomed by the friendly staff seven days a week.

Beautiful and historic campus in central Dublin. This is one of the main tourist sights in Dublin. Not a whole lot to see, to be honest - you can see most of the campus in an hour.

Trinity College Dublin was established in 1592. It has the largest research library in Ireland containing approximately five million books. The Book of Kells is also kept here, along with other ancient texts. Some notable people to pass through its doors include, Oscar Wilde, Samuel Beckett, Bram Stoker and Jonathan Swift. This college really is a must see on a visit to Dublin.Recommended for:

Trinity College is a quiet, safe haven in the middle of noisy, busy Dublin. Once you walk through the arch entrance, it's as if all the sound of the city immediately disappears. It's a bit spooky.
Don't miss the Book of the Kells, one of the oldest books known.

I can't actually pin point exactly what it is about Trinity College but you really should visit it, especially as it's location is so central. The building itself is just beautiful and it is nice to just walk around the grounds. They do tours too but we just wandered off on our own when we went last time.

We went to Trinity College Dublin in order to look at the Book of Kells exhibition and to see the Old Library. The Book of Kells is a famous 9th century illuminated gospel manuscript. The exhibition provides detailed information but unfortunately, you only get to see the pages open on any particular day. You can buy a CD or book to see the rest. The Old Library is a magnificent long room with upper and lower galleries of bookcase. In addition to some very old books, the Library has a collection of busts of philosophers and writers, as well as a 15th century harp which is the model for the emblem of Ireland.

There is something awesome in the air around the Trinity College in the heart of Dublin. Perhaps it is the history, or the inherent sophistication that oozes out of its building walls...which are architecturally beautiful to look at as well.
There is so much history and preservation of history here. The library, which is the largest in Ireland, should not be missed especially for those (like me) who enjoys marveling at rows after rows, volumes after volumes of books. If interested in the history of gospel, the Book of Kells is stored inside this library. We really enjoyed our stroll and immersing ourselves in this beautiful campus.Recommended for:
