Lovely grounds to stroll through before and/or after visiting the book of kells & old library. Many things to see & though we didn't visit it on our trip, I believe there is a good café there as well. Lots of history in this location, the grounds & the buildings.

This is a beautiful campus and well worth the visit. Take time to visit the library. The Book of Kells exhibition and The Long Room are both amazing. No photography allowed in the exhibition halls but you can buy postcards with great pictures.

If you have teenagers - go. Beautiful courtyards and the greenest greens. Kids will love to see how different the look is but how alike the campus culture is.

Wish I could see more of the amazing buildings! Definitely worth going around and have a seat near the cricket pitch on a sunny day!

An imposing group of neo-classical buildings surrounding by lush green lawns. This was the setting for the film "Educating Rita".
