A beautiful mix of Old and New. We didn’t get to walk around the entire campus just the main areas around the Book of Kelly exhibit. Still a bustling college but the campus is lovely.

This place is pretty cool. It's historical. It's in the few movies. Fun to learn about. It is on an active campus and in the heart of Dublin. It's worth the time and money to go see it.
