Trinity College Dublin
Ireland’s oldest university, Trinity College Dublin is as much a national institution as a university. Located in the heart of Dublin’s city centre on 47 acres, the Trinity campus merges classical European architecture and modern state of the art design.
Trinity is particularly well known for its library which houses the Book of Kells, written in 800A.D and attracts thousands of visitors every year for this reason alone. The library contains nearly five million books; making it Ireland’s largest by some distance.
Trinity is also well known for its long running student newspaper Trinity News.
The annual Trinity Ball is one of the best student nights in Europe, let alone Dublin, and highly recommended. Artists such as Babyshambles, Groove Armada, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and Mark Ronson have played the gig in the past and 2009 promises to be spectacular as it is the 50th Trinity Ball.
