I stopped by Trinity College to see the books of Kells, which was illuminating, but the highlight was a trip to visit the old library, what a fantastic, captivating room. The campus at Trinity is an oasis in the middle of the city and a nice spot to relax a bit.

When we visited they were constructing a light rail line outside the College making sidewalk travel challenging. Once inside we were impressed with the college, especially the library! My daughter thought it appeared to be a building straight out of Harry Potter.

The architecture was amazing. It was lovely to wander around and view it. It of course contains the Book of Kells which is interesting, though unlike the Collage isnt free to visit, but well worth the money. The quadrangle seems to have its own microclimate as the crocuses were out at the beginning of November.

It is really close to the city center, and there is a lot of history in this place. The several hundred years old, meets the super modern.

There's not much to do in Trinity College, but the architecture of the buildings is admirable. It will make great photos.

Definitely a great place to stop for photos and catch up on the history of it's alumni. Bram Stoker, Oscar Wilde and Samuel Beckett all went to school here.

Trinity College was interesting but expensive. We took a tour with audio guide. The whole story about the book is interesting but the main reason to go to trinity college is the library. That was cool but not worth the money.

I stayed at Trinity College for a week while working at a conference. The rooms were comfortable, and the staff was very nice. There was a problem with our booking, and the staff worked hard to fix it as quickly as possible. We were out quite a bit at night, and the security staff was welcoming and didn't give anyone...

We booked a session to look at the book of kels which was great. I was a bit disappointed that there were not guides and whilst audio looked to be available we weren't offered and audio. That aside it was well done and great access to the books, it's history and the long room of library books that my family... More
