Fast-track Easy Access Book of Kells Tour with Dublin Castle

562 reviews
Avoid waiting in long lines at the Book of Kells—one of the most important highlights of Irish heritage dating back to the ninth century—on this early-access tour. Meet at the easy-to-find Trinity College in central Dublin, and set off listening to the elaborate history from a guide who unlocks secret mysteries of the book. End your tour at Dublin Castle where your guide dives even deeper into Irish culture and heritage.

It was my final stop in Dublin, and one of that, I will remember for a long time. The museum tells a wonderful, poignant, melancholy story of the emigration process that took place in Ireland. The design of the museum is fabulous, modern, interactive, exhibitions are loaded with hands-on learning experiences that are entertaining for both adults and children. It is a great mix of info and technology. The journey begins with you being issued a kind of passport. This well-designed booklet contains a map of the museum. As you walk through each room, you can place your passport into a device that stamps the corresponding spot on the map - a clever idea that keeps you on track. I see many things in common between the emigration of Irish and Polish people, so it was a personal experience for me. This museum far exceeded my expectations. It really brought the story of Irish immigrants to life. It was... epic!

We purchased online workshop about Female explorers for our 9 year old daughter. She really enjoyed it found it very interesting and enjoyed the interactive aspect as well. Going on her response we will be purchasing further online workshops. Well done on this was well worth it and can't wait for the next one.

We visited the exposition. We liked that there is an audio guide which you may install on your phone and idea with stamping in your own passport. The museum is quite big, and there is a lot of information from different sources. So, we spent more than 2 hours in the museum and still think that we missed some information while visiting. I suggest visiting the museum several times to be able to discover more and more interesting info.
