The campus is very beautiful. Book of Kelps is the highlight. Lots of departments and several Noble Laureates came from here including invention of splitting of atoms. Do check out the Science academy as well.

It is quite nice don't get me wrong but I had higher expectations. I'm sure the libraries instead are outstanding but the grounds and buildings were average. Very crowded as well and this area suffers from it especially.

A must see on a visit to Dublin, the Trinity College building is steeped in history. Lucky students get to use the prestigious place. Easy to find just south of O'Connell bridge centrally. Walk around and feel the atmosphere that has inspired so many. Try to get into the library and check out the Book of Kells.

It's a lovely college campus that serves as a nerve center. I took one of the tours, which was really interesting and confirmed how significant the college is to the history of the city.

This was one of the most amazing Universities I have visited. The entire area is very well preserved and full of history. It feels like you need to go and study there! I managed to catch a guided tour and all the history behind it it is just amazing.

A nice place to walk around and enjoy the weather at. The buildings are old and photograph well. Too bad all the attractions cost a fortune.

Its a nice grounds, so if the weather is good its worth coming in for a stroll. They do tours on campus and if you come on a weekend it will be mainly tourists walking around here. If you are in the area, doesn't hurt to check out even though its not something you have to see.

We visited here very quickly, too much to see & do here with the queue for the book of Kelly's really long! Library looked amazing but was closed on the day we visited. Lovely arictecture and steeped in history, worth a visit as you can mooch around at no cost.
