Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Thursday 4th August and we entered the amazing grounds of Trinity College through the large arched entrance off College Green.

As we emerged from the entrance one of the most eye catching sights that greeted us was this wonderful tower.

It stands 30.5 metres ( just over 100 feet) high and comprises of three sections. The largest of which is the square base, each side has a tall archway which enables pedestrians to walk under the Tower from each side. On the roof of the arches there is a statute on each of the four corners.

This supports, the second section, a round pillar with a number of oblong widow slots, with arched tops, flanked by pillars. The slots are filled with metal latticework.

The third section is the domed belfry with a cross on top.

The construction of the Tower was completed in 1853.

It is worth visiting the College if only to see this lovely structure.

Such a beautiful structure and location that I popped the question under the campanile in the evening when we had the whole area to ourselves... and she said yes!

Will forever hold a special place for us both.

This clock tower at Trinity college is famous. It is on many of the images of the Trinity college. Worthwhile to take some time for it when you visit Trinity.

The Campanile is what hits you as you enter Trinity College from College Green. It’s perfectly formed and settles in well amongst the other buildings on the quadrangle.

You cannot miss this iconic structure as you enter Trinity College. It is situated right in the centre of the grounds of the college. It is an interesting granite structure that carries its own traditions and superstitions. The student guide gave an informative explanation of the detailing of the bell tower. Good photo op.

You can’t miss the campanile, it’s a focal point of the campus and provides a beautiful backdrop for an already beautiful campus.

Tour guide of Trinity College led us to the Campanile. He told of us the superstitions of not walking through the Campanile to avoid failing exams. He also explained the four coat of arms.
