The college is beautiful. Be sure to take the tour from the students in the "funny looking robes" which includes a ticket to the Book of Kells. I preferred The Long Hall, loved seeing the books arranged by size.

Trinity College is a beautiful campus to just walk around and take a look. I found it particularly interesting because I work at a university.

We used the summer accommodation which is great value for money compared to hotels in the city, granted they are student rooms so not luxurious but they are comfortable, normally two single rooms to a block with a shared bathroom shower and kitchen/lounge, with cooking...More

A recent graduate of trinity college led our 40-minute tour. Good background information about architecture and current student residents. Price of tour included book of Kells and library. We enjoyed it but was often difficult to hear the tour guide.

The campus is open for you to walk around after visiting The Book of Kells, be sure to be respectful of the students that are attending.

If we want to get a tour, should we book ahead of time or can we sign up when we arrive? What is recommended? Also are there tours on the weekend too or just during the week? I assume we should definitely do a tour rather than walk through ourselves?

It depends on when you are travelling - check the website and err on the side of caution and book a tour would be my suggestion. And leave some room to wander around Dublin City. You might want to take a walking tour or a... More

Hi, you can get ticket inside the bookstore. The queue is not that long when we got there. No need to worry about getting a ticket.
Has anyone stayed in the student housing during their trip to Dublin? Would you recommend it?
