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.
