This is an interesting campus. We did not take the official tour and did the walk-through ourselves a few times to get to the inner-city. There are free activities such as the science center and then paid activities such as entry to the library. We...More

Great student guided tour. We were told lots of interesting things about the college instead of just walking around on our own

This is an active college so depending on when you're there you could be surrounded by students. The buildings are old and interesting and it's worth strolling through.

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.
