The area around the college is open to the public and you can walk around and enjoy the architecture and greenery. If you are a history buff you could also visit the book of Kells exhibit which is a very old version of the bible.Close by is also Grafton street, one of the main shopping streets in Dublin.

The school sits in the middle of the city and the walk through the arch welcomes you with a large wide open are of grass, trees and walk ways. It offers you a walk around the campus and enjoy it's architecture and culture.

It's a must visit and it's... More

They said that as you walk through the main gates if you walk on the left you are religious and on the right you are a scholar (left is the Chapel and... More

Worth a visit and a humorous and interesting student guide to Trinity College. Book of Kells is very interesting but the old library (inspiration for Harry Potter library ) stole the show for my teens well worth a visit!

If possible, visit the room for the professors . The museum of Kelts is worth a visit, also the old library where you find original manuscript of Jonatgan Swift. Feel the old university campus atmosphere.

What a beautiful university, stunning. Library is very impressive, we got talking to one of the guards whose knowledge was immense and very interesting - talk and ask questions as they make the visit much more interesting. The book of Kells is just beautiful, Also reading the Irish declaration !
