Its size and location in the center of the city make Trinity College a must-see stop whilst touring Dublin. Invariably, you will pass by it on the way to anything else and the landscaping, sculpture, architecture and exhibits here are noteworthy.
I made two stops at Trinity. One to pop off some photos and get a general feel. The other to see the Book Of Kells exhibit. The Kells exhibit is good; giving a comprehensive history of the Celtic Monk-created artifact containing the Four Gospels of the New Testament. I don’t have much interest in organized religion but its a technically interesting and well-preserved bit of local history – I recommend.
Leaving the exhibit was a departure into anachronistic-chic; it was dark (at 430p) and the neon lighting, Irish trip-hop music and skinny-jean-high-top-sneaker clad students permeating the campus were strangely complementary to its 16th century roots.
