This place is so historic with many of the famous Irish authors attending Trinity College, and the Long Library has over 200,000 books dating back hundreds of years old. Excellent student tour guides are available onsite. Excellent Architecture.

A tour of the grounds here is well worth while. It gets amazingly busy with tourists and its best to have a knowledgeable guide. The architecture is very impressive. The Book of Kells and the Old Library are the star attractions. Highly recommended.

Great tour, the stories of the three squares were funny and educational. Our guide was personable and did a good job.

You should definetly take a guided tour there. Tours are held by the students of the college. Totally worth it - interesting and funny. Ticket to the Book of Kelts is included into the price of the tour.

This was a beautiful walk through the historic buildings of the university. You could take a guided walk with access to the Book of Kells for €14, but there are queues for the latter. A seat in the grounds with the sun shine was a...More

Booking tickets on-line saved us a long line-up. The book of Kells exhibit is special and a must-see but the Long Hall Library is so impressive.

You have to go through the exhibit of the Book of Kells to enter the library . You can just walk past by the exhibit quickly though.
