Trinity College Dublin is a beautiful campus. In the center courtyard you'll find cobblestone paths leading to each building. Such beauty amid a busy city. It was a nice place to explore.

I revisited Trinity after a long gap and was glad to reacquaint myself with this terrific campus. The buildings are all architecturally interesting and several modern sculptures are installed in various locations.

Nice campus and beautiful grounds. Enjoyable just to walk around and to see the buildings and gardens. A few statues and all the young people.

We onlyl were able to walk around but they do have tours. Enjoyed checking it out. Such character. I am told one can lodge in the dorms as well during the school breaks. Wish I had known.

Visited this venue. Beautiful quadrangle is the first sight you see. Lovely and relaxing especially on a sunny day. Situated in the heart of Dublin city it's just a short walk to the premier shopping streets of Dublin. The Book of Kells is stored here....More

Unclear as to your query. The College operates year round. The accommodation for tourist use is during the ‘summer’ trimester e.g. May - August.

You can go yourself. A guided tour will bring the college to life for you.
