  • Take the campus your and visit the book of Kells, well worth it! The history goes far back, as do the fun stories. Located near a fun shopping district with lots of pubs, recommend the Hairy Lemon.

  • I visited friends who were studying at trinity college. I had a look around and it is an amazing college. It was too busy to fully appreciate it and see more. I will be back again. Worth a visit if you are in the area.
  • Must see, even if just a walk through campus. Great greens and accommodating space. Stop into any building if you can, respect the students and professors space there for study!
