Smack bang in the city centre is Trinity College, often voted as a top visiting spot when you hit Dublin. Founded in 1592, Trinity College and it’s historic buildings are absolutely breathtaking. The Old Library, within the grounds is home to one of the world’s most famous books, The Book of Kells. Written around the year 800, this gospel manuscript is on display in the library for you to view. Take the 35 minute tour (no need to book in advance) to explore the 4 major quads and to learn about the history of this beautiful college. In the summer time, the cricket pavillion is a favourite spot for folks to sprawl out with a picnic in the balmy sunshine!
