  • It is worth joining a walking tour to get the most out of your visit to Trinity College, which has stunning buildings and an interesting history.  more »
  • Really beautiful grounds, worth a walk around free of charge. Must be a bit of a nightmare for the students!  more »

  • Love this tour for so many reasons. The young lady who led the tour was very knowledgeable and really nice. She had us laughing and learning all at once. Definitely worth it. I would do it again
  • Lovely place to walk and observe/explore history. I did not go into the library because there was quite a wait but obviously it's a popular thing to do and probably well worth it. Highly recommend exploring all the little nooks and crannies to find ivy covered buildings off the beaten path. Can't beat the price for a quick walk about either (free!) Highly recommended!
