Trinity College & Book of Kells
Trinity College was founded in 1529 by Queen Elizabeth and was modelled on the English Universities of Oxford and Cambridge. Located in the middle of the city centre a short walk from Grafton Street – the campus provides an escape from the busy city surrounding it. Still a university today the college campus also holds a visitor centre, home to the ancient Book of Kells. This unique book is unparalleled and no matter the time of year the beautiful details on each page will leave you in awe. The Book of Kells is kept in the long room at trinity Library – a stunning building that is worth visiting on its own and has been featured in many movies and TV shows.
Directly across from Temple Bar on Dame Street, you will find Dublin Castle. This 13th-century castle stands on the same site as Celtic and Viking fortresses. The area around the castle has been added to over the centuries
