Tips from the community

Trinity College Library, and the Trinity College campus are beautiful. If you enjoy old Georgian architecture then take your time walking around this city campus. When I was there unfortunately there was a long line to enter the library and view the Book of Kells and the iconic Long Room at the library. It does cost 16€ for tickets and I know people that have said it is not worth it to stand in a line in the library to look at one page of an old book. While I certainly agree with that sentiment, I would have loved to explore the library itself.

  • What to do with 5 Days in Dublin

    I went to Ireland for the first time in 2019 and absolutely fell in love with it! I was only in Ireland for five days, but managed to introduce myself to many different parts of the country. From Dublin and the iconic Guinness Storehouse, to Northern Ireland and Giant's Causeway, to Galway and the Cliffs of Moher on the west coast. I didn't get to spend a lot of time in each of these places but it gave me a taste and left me wanting to return as soon as possible!
