Excellent tour of the college led by Monty, a senior there. Very entertaining stories about the college and its history as well as entrance to the Long Library and the Book of Kells display. The whole tour was fun and fascinating made even more so...More

Viewing the library alone is worth it ... You can walk through campus without any cost, but to see the library you must pay. I'm not a religious person so the Book of Kells bit was interesting but not why I was there. It was...More

Trinity College is like many other university institutions; grand, steeped in history and if you visit during term time it provides a brilliant atmosphere. It's free to wander around the grounds alone, but if you're going to pay to visit the Book of Kells, you...More

The Trinity College is worth going to see. It is a active college as well. I enjoyed the campus, the beautiful library and architecture of the buildings. May I suggest for you to take a tour it’s worth the cost. If you go it alone...More

It was interesting to learn how Elizabeth I was determined to set up a quality institute for Protestant higher learning in Ireland, and how for hundreds of years Catholics could not attend, nor women, although that has since changed. Ireland has a complicated religious history,...More

Most hotels you have booked to stay have a luggage room and will store your luggage until it's time to check in. We arrived in Dublin at 7:00am, took a taxi to our hotel, dropped our luggage off then went to Trinity College... More
