Definite must! Book of Kells was ok. Very difficult to see and it was too crowded. The long hall was amazing made up for crowded Book of Kells! Enjoyed Trinity College grounds. It’s a must if you are in Dublin.

The college grounds have a great buzz - college students, tourists and college staff all milling about. A lot to see - Book of Kells, Douglas Hyde Gallery and the Cricket Grounds. It’s a lovely break from the hustle and bustle of the city.

We popped inside the gates for a look around. It's nice to see and if you walk through Parliament Square to Library Square there is a helpful map. The students do offer tours for apx 15eu and you can see the book of Kells but...More

Missed the tour but did get to see the Book of Kells and the Long Room. Both amazing and well worth a visit

Always enjoy local college tours when I travel. Trinity is, of course, a venerable institution. Many go for the Book of Kells, but in my opinion, the Long Hall is the major attraction here. Well worth strolling about for two hours.

The shear magnitude of the library is overwhelming. Imagine sitting and chatting with Oscar Wilde in these hallowed halls. Don't forget to check out the Book of Kells too.

It is the oldest university in Dublin. There toke part some important historical events. It is a must-see because of its beautiful builds and if you can don't miss the amazing library!

I thought this attraction would be a touristy cliche and I was wrong! Exquisite works of art, spiritually fulfilling and the long room library is throbbing with history. Don't miss it.

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
