We were given a tour of the University as part of our national tour. The local guide (a graduate) was very knowledgeable.

I don’t know how students focus and study with all the Tours and visitors but I enjoyed the change to learn more about the college and it’s programs. Enjoyed the visit to the long room/library and great gift shop.

Trinity College is not only a very famous college, home of the Book of Kells, but the buildings are so beautiful. The Courtyard in particularly is worth seeing. The cobblestones brings you back in time.

After a very filling lunch, we went for a stroll around the Temple Bar region and arrived at Trinity College. The history of the buildings was enough to impress us, though a run through the quad by some young friends was also fun.

It was very busy and crowded, but we were still able to appreciate the size and spectacle of this amazing library.

Well worth the price of the tour - we learned a lot of interesting facts and history about the college, and felt like we were supporting the college students at the same time!

We did a quick look in around Trinity at the wonderful buildings. The line for the Book of Kells was extremely long and should really be booked in advance. We did browse the gift shop and there were many neat items for purchase.

Trinity college is bang in the heart of Dublin. It's a great open space, and the escorted tour is most informative. Add a visit to the Book of Kells. Be ashamed how this was exclusively Protestant till 1970! Recommend - if there's a show on...More

It depends on when you are travelling - check the website and err on the side of caution and book a tour would be my suggestion. And leave some room to wander around Dublin City. You might want to take a walking tour or a... More

Hi, you can get ticket inside the bookstore. The queue is not that long when we got there. No need to worry about getting a ticket.
