Trinity College, founded in 1592, is the oldest university in Ireland and a major Dublin attraction.
It is the repository of the Book of Kells, an ancient illuminated manuscript of the gospels labored over by Celtic monks, circa 800 A.D.
Note: There is a small admission charge to view the Book of Kells, on permanent display in the Old Library at Trinity College.
Dublin visitors to Trinity College will find this active campus alive with students and a lovely place to take a stroll. Its 40 acres encompass green meadows, historic buildings, and streets paved with cobblestones.
