Nice Campus

Beautiful architecture. Also a historic site. Going to depend on weather as well since there are a lot of open spaces.

you can walk around the gardens looking at the outside of the buildings, which is lovely. it is so peaceful next to the bustle of the city. but even better would be to have a guided tour which you can get at the entrance of the college.

To learn about the history of the college and of course the holder of the Book of Kells. A short walk from where I stayed, the college has an amazing courtyard that almost overtakes your senses as you want to do it all. Loved the college and the tour should be a must do.

This is an old college that has its place in the city center. There is also an amazing library that housed The book of Kells. The college with its campus is huge. It is amazing place you must see. It has an amazing power during day and gorgeous secret touch during night. Love it.

We were part of a tour group and had the afternoon on our own. We decided not to go to the Guinness Brewery with the majority of the tour group and struck out for Dublin on our own. We were curious about the campus and happened on a line of people waiting to see the Book of Kells exhibit. The... More

We took the campus guided tour given by the students there and it was very good. Tickets are sold right inside the entrance gate and include the visit to the Library and the Book of Kells. Highly recommend this visit.

We chose not to pre-book but went on a 30min student guided tour, this is available at the front gate and includes entrance to see the Book of Kells. Student guide was very informative and its good to get the full history and background of the college plus what its like to study there now.
