  • Many people will be wondering whether the book of Kells is worth it. For anyone who is interested in history, and especially that of Ireland, I’d say the book of Kells is a must for that alone. The tour includes an abundant amount of information about the book of Kells, the monastic background of Ireland and trinity college. After the books of Kells you’ll find the long room which was also the library featured in Harry Potter. For me, the book of Kells was an absolute joy.

  • An absolutely incredible display of the Book of Kells, regardless of whether you are into history or not! This outstanding display is well worth a visit, and Trinity College itself (and its surroundings) are truly beautiful. I've been here once but would love to go again.

  • The book of kells is very special to visit, such history. But going to see it also brings you to the old library of Trinity College. That is just a magical place. So many old books together in such a special place, just wow! Well worth a visit. We didn't get tickets online just stood in the queue, but it only took not more as 10 minutes to get inside.

  • The book of Kells is a once in a lifetime experience. If you are a Christian and history buff, you will love this tour. The information about how books were written back in Viking times is astounding. The intricate decorate is enough to make your head spin. I can barely do adult coloring books let alone these beautiful Christian gospel books. And then finish off the tour with visiting the biggest library I've ever seen in the long hall. Fantastic.

  • Absolutely awesome. Must see. Not really into books but this is worth seeing. Amazing display. The library is beautiful.
