2 hour itinerary
Visit the Old Library and Book of Kells
After your walking tour is complete, enter Trinity’s Old Library to marvel at the intricate artwork in the Book of Kells. Be sure to download our audio guide to get the most out of your visit and learn about the secrets behind one of Ireland’s greatest cultural treasures. Explore the awe inspiring Long Room library chamber, where a once in a lifetime historic event will be unfolding before your eyes.
The library’s precious collections have been in our care for over 400 years, and the time has come to protect them, and this important building for the future. Watch as our team work to carefully remove the books from the shelves and listen to the audio guide as Librarian and College Archivist, Helen Shenton, explains the work involved. Experience this unique opportunity to witness parts of our library emerge that haven’t been seen in hundreds of years.
Pick up a coffee or a memento
Before you leave the Old Library, browse the range of gifts and beautiful Irish crafts in our gift shop and pick up a memento of your visit. And if you have the time, pop into Perch Café to grab a coffee which you can enjoy on a bench in one of Trinity’s beautiful squares.
