Spent a couple of hours touring Trinity. Very interesting and informative. Really enjoyed seeing the book of Kells and was memorised by the "long hall" Pictures don't do it justice. A little bit pricey on entry but we'll worth a visit.

If your Irish or visiting the green isle trinity college is a must see for cultural reasons. Bookmof kells. The library is superb. The character of the courtyard and buildings alone are just stunning. It's steeped in history. The tours are amazing and highly recommended.

Always spotless clean and the history that you can breath around these walls is breathtaking! I totally love it, either as a place of reflection out just a stroll to walk away from the buzziness of the city.

A little dull though it is all outside and the weather was cold and wet. A hot chocolate in the Buttery was very welcome.
