If you need to find a quite spot outdoors to escape the noise of the traffic this is it. Beautiful architecture, some grass at the back where the rugby and cricket pitch are, and if you’re a tourist, a visit to the library and the book of kells is always worth it! Plenty of good photo opportunities on the grounds too. For people to like hidden treasures, peek inside the geology building doors for a Harry Potter worthy stairwell & the skeleton of a now extinct Irish animal.
Trinity college is a perfect place to visit in Dublin. The library, the buildings, the university, everything is really nice. It's exactly on the city centre so perfect to for a walk.
Dublin is such a beautiful country! Trinity college is a must see. The grounds are green and plush. My husband and I went to Dublin for a weekend getaway. We went in the early spring so it was still chilly and rainy. According to the locals that's their weather for the most part. Dress appropriately. Trinity college is historic so make sure it's on your bucket list!
I loved it. The views are great and historical. I like its history. That could be perfect if I had this chance to study here.
Historical place! It can get very crowded as hordes of tourists flock to see this prestigious college! Many famous graduates have come through the college’s doors where you can learn about them in the school’s museum! Old buildings makes you feel like you are in a castle! Highly recommend!
