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.

As an Ancient History teacher, I LOVED this museum. I have taught students about a number of the civilisations within the displays and my students loved hearing me retell my experiences here. The Bog Bodies display was interesting and, in my opinion, displayed in a considerate manner considering the ethics behind displaying human remains. Fantastic!

Visited in December 2020, very safe and reassuring experience. Booking or registration needed which was done with no fuss. COVID protocols managed very well throughout the building, staff were very helpful, and I was delighted to see that all exhibits were open and accessible as normal.

If you want to learn Ireland in a best possible way and to have a fun as well, head to the National Museum of Archaeology, and immerse yourself in extraordinary exhibitions and galleries. They have brilliant exhibition about vikings, and you will learn everything about ancient viking culture exploring artfacts old centuries or watching interesting multimedia mats. They have an amazin souvenir shop as well, so after exploring you can visit ship as well. Prices are moderate and you can get great stuff as well. Highly recommended for travellers staying 7+ days.

By far, the best museum I've ever visited in Dublin. I spent like 2 hours there because I read everything. If you would like to learn about Ireland's history, this is the right place. Not only for what you can find while reading, but for all the amazing and well preserved objects that helps you to transport to that era. So complete and enjoyful.

This museum provided a great overview of the history of Ireland and had enough details to keep it fun. For the following week of our visit to Ireland we often reflected on things we saw in the museum.
