great place to check out in Dublin. it has an amazing library. but there is a wait. The grounds are free to visit and take pictures. the buildings and the lawn are very nice. if you are interested in education and history definitely a place to go. they have student tours aswell.
This is a little oasis in the heart of Dublin. Make sure to visit the book of kells ( and pre book ) to save on a long queue time
This stunning college campus is worth a visit. There are some areas with entry fees, but you can wander around for free. I was lucky with my visit and got to see an outdoor performance by some students. So make sure to check whether any events are going on during your visit.
Trinity is one of the prettiest campuses I’ve ever seen, ever. I highly recommend popping in if you are in Dublin. It’s free to walk around and gaze at the beautiful buildings. The library has a charge but other than that it’s a free spot to chill and relax a bit!

The 9th century book is a richly decorated copy of the four Gospels of the life of Jesus Christ.The exhibition is open 7 days a week. Tickets can be purchased online or at the ticket desk within the exhibition.
I stopped here to visit the Book of Kells but arrived too late and it was closed. Fortunately I was able to walk the grounds of the college. The architecture is beautiful and the grounds were much larger than they appeared from the street. I was also fortunate to catch the colleges chapel choir singing. I ended up attending mass after being invited in. The choir sounded like angels. I'd recommend attending their mass! Goose bumps! The campus is definitely worth the stop and I'd advise checking the hours of the Kells so you don't make my mistake. Guess I'll have to come back! Darn!
