Trinity College (Book of Kells)Approx. Time: 1 hours
Activity Level: Easiest

Trinity College is the oldest university in Ireland. Founded in 1592 by Queen Elizabeth I, the College is in an enviable position in the very heart of Ireland's capital and in 1992 celebrated 400 years.

The college is famed for the great treasures it has the honor to be guardian of. These include the BOOK OF KELLS, a 9th century illuminated manuscript, the books of Durrow and Armagh and an early Irish harp. These are displayed in The Colonnades exhibition Gallery and the Long Room which is the most impressive library in the College housing over 200,000 of Trinity's oldest books.

The Book of Kells Picturing the Word exhibition places the manuscript in its historical and cultural context and permits the visitor to view the Book of Kells in much greater detail than is normally possible.

The Dublin Experience is a multi media audio visual presentation of the story of Dublin and its people from Viking Times to the present day. The Dublin Experience operates in the Arts building from late May to early October each year and should not be missed.
