The building facade of Trinity College is among many constructed since the foundation of the College on March 13th, 1592. The design is attributed to Theodore Jacobsen, a London-based amateur architect, with the collaboration of Henry Keene and John...more

We took a guided tour of Trinity College which included viewing the Book of Kells. It was beautiful. Two pages of the four being shown were illuminated. While waiting for the tour to begin we struck up a conversation with an elderly man who had...More
Having lived on Trinity's campus during the summer for a seminar, I have a different perspective than perhaps the thousands of tourists traipsing through the campus daily. It is a relatively small area in the center of Dublin and obviously a destination for every tour...More
So the Book of Kells is in Trinity, and the admission for the tour of Trinity includes the Book of Kells exhibit. And is the SAME PRICE as the Book of Kells alone. So why not? An actual Trinity undergraduate leads the tour, telling you...More
If you visit Trinity College, you simply must pay for a student guide. You will learn so much about the College. Aim to get Alexander, he is just so dry and so funny.

Buy your tickets online and save the wait. The exhibit is amazing though there are only several pages to see. Reading all the history is important to appreciate the exhibits. The library is impressive indeed straight out of the past.
Walking arpund Trinity College is one of my favourite things to do when im in the city. It is very busy but still calming at the same time.
Hanging out at the Pav during the summer is a highlight of Dublin.

As you walk into the building from the street you have to go through a large archway. The students greet you as you enter and they have a stand where you can buy tickets for the students tour. They did not mention that they offer a tour of the book of Kells, so ask it would be best to ask what they offer on the tour. Entrance tickets can be purchased inside one of the buildings and the ticket desk is next to the gift shop. If the students don't include this in their tour they can direct you to the ticket desk.
We went first thing in the morning also on a Saturday. It was open when we arrived and the line already had about 30 people waiting. They only let in limited numbers at a time. We waited about 30 minutes. My husband... More
We went first thing in the morning also on a Saturday. It was open when we arrived and the line already had about 30 people waiting. They only let in limited numbers at a time. We waited about 30 minutes. My husband strolled the grounds while I held our places. I was not aware of the discounted tickets. We paid full price for 2. The books of Kells are very small but you can easily take your time because of the pacing of people allowed in. The library was enormous, incredible, and definitely worth the wait and money.
