I expected something different. None of the buildings were open. We did not have time to wait for a tour. Too many people. No one around to answer questions about the school. Only tour guides and ticket sellers who were too busy to answer anything....More

Trinity College is a nice place to see if you have time. The historic buildings lie within the heart of Dublin. It is worth seeing if you have time to stroll the grounds and take in the sites

You can walk around the campus all summer, enjoy picnics on the many benches and of course the library with the book of Kells is open to visitors.
