What would Dublin be without the venerable Trinity College? For every visitor, this magnificent building is a must-see when visiting the city. What awaits you here? A paradise for book and culture lovers.
In the vaults, feel as if you are in a scene from a Harry Potter movie as you cautiously leaf through well-restored old books. Immerse yourself in this magical atmosphere and learn new history about the Book of Kells.
Step out of the city life and into the quiet atmosphere of Dublin's beautiful campus. Trinity College is the only college of the University of Dublin and was established in 1592 by Elizabeth I exclusively for Protestant students in the former Augustinian monastery. Today, the college is not only known among students, but it's also one of the most popular tourist attractions.
During this unique tour, you will leave in awe. Main attractions include the Old Library and its magical Long Room. The Long Room is the main chamber of the Old Library and filled with 200,000 of the library's oldest books. Once you surround yourself in this enchanting setting, you will quickly learn that it's one of the most impressive libraries in the world. Lay your eyes on the 9th-century Gospel Manuscript, a towering example of insular illumination which magnetically attracts tourists from around the world.
Even though there's tourist activity in the library, it's also a pleasant place to unwind and concentrate on work. Our tip: Go to the top floor and let the unique barrel vault mesmerize you. Dark wood adorns the shelves, and parapets give it an extraordinary charm. The 65-meter archive spreads over two floors and contains an incredible amount of 200,000 books, old works, and manuscripts from various eras. As you stroll through the tall shelves, take a journey through time, and immerse yourself in a new world—Marvel at how the librarians painstakingly restore old books and thus preserved for the next few years. Again and again, you will meet marble statues of essential writers and philosophers around the campus. Experience the campus's relaxed atmosphere and engage with student life.
Duration of the trip: Half day
