"Visit Trinity College." Trinity College Tip by worldkiwi

Trinity College, Dublin: 143 reviews and 222 photos

 
 

The Book of Kells and other ancient 'illuminated texts' are the draw card here, but if like me you strike the Book of Kells on a day when a dull page is turned to, it can be a bit of a let down!<BR>
Slightly more stunning and impressive is the 'Long Room' library upstairs from the exhibition displaying the Book of Kells. It is like walking into a cathedral of books! It is a shame you can't take photos in there. Books tower above you - it is another one of those places you walk into and say 'wow'.
