"Peace and quietness in Trinity College" Trinity College Tip by Mahieu

Trinity College, Dublin: 142 reviews and 221 photos


The area around Trinity College is pretty noisy, but once inside the green of Trinity College, there's peace and quietness. A mix of students and tourists hang around on the greens and it's a nice place to relax and read a bit. Most tourists come here to see the Book of Kells. This manuscript contains transcriptions of the four Gospels, illustrated and ornamented. It is the most elaborate manuscript of its kind to survive from the early Middle Ages. It dates back to the year 800. The exhibition is Trinity College is well worth a visit. There's an explanation of the origins, the materials used, the themes, ... At the end you actually get to see the book.
