It was really nice to walk around the campus of Trinity College. We went into the gift shop and walked through many of the buildings. The campus was beautiful and well worth a visit.

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.
