In a month of travelling in Europe, Trinity was a low point. Info says to go to main gate; it was locked with no alternate information. Walked a third of the way around, found a entrance, and finally found the Accomodations Office. Walked up a lot of floors (they say third floor, really fourth). Room was basic dorm, but for 100 euros, it had nothing but a couple of tiny towels and two little bars of soap. Internet was 15 euros!! Room was very noisy. Closed the window to escape the noise, and it was too hot. The next morning we were yelled at by the "Butter" cafeteria manager and treated like absolute idiots when we asked where the WC was. There was a decent looking full breakfast, but somehow we didn't qualify for it. Continental breakfast was ok--good coffee, good croissants.
If you want to sleep next door to the Book of Kells, it's a great site; also well located for nightlife. I kept trying to compare it to sleeping in a dorm at Harvard or Yale, which most of us Americans would find pretty cool, but, overall, I felt ripped off.More
