Fast-track Easy Access Book of Kells Tour with Dublin Castle

562 reviews
Avoid waiting in long lines at the Book of Kells—one of the most important highlights of Irish heritage dating back to the ninth century—on this early-access tour. Meet at the easy-to-find Trinity College in central Dublin, and set off listening to the elaborate history from a guide who unlocks secret mysteries of the book. End your tour at Dublin Castle where your guide dives even deeper into Irish culture and heritage.

Without a doubt this is the best tourist experience in Dublin. Regularly visited by locals, school children and tourists from abroad. An excellent introduction to Irish history and Ireland.

Delighted to at last do the tour of kilmainham Gaol, it brings history to life. You see the prison cells and also the yard where executions took place. You also can view through an opening in the cell door the painting Grace Gifford Plunkett did on the wall. Well with a visit.

We visited this goal and - even with the Covid restrictions - it was a fantastic tour. Our tourguide was superb, very friendly and engaging though it was the last tour of a busy day. Would highly recommend!

We walked to the Gaol as due to covid there were no hopper buses available. A long way but well worth it! We had a very interesting knowledgeable guide who really knew her stuff. We werent rushed at all but were shown around and everything explained. A well looked after piece of history with a museum too.
