Trinity College, founded by Queen Elizabeth I in 1591 is known for its distinguished alumni, including Oscar Wilde, William Congreve, Oliver Goldsmith, Braham Stoker, as well as its 3 million volumes gathered over four centuries. The library's Long Room, constructed in the 19th century, preserves Trinity College's most valued treasure, the 8th-century Book of Kells, an illuminated manuscript of the four Gospels of the New Testament, created around AD 800 by monks on the Scottish island of Iona.
Christ Church Cathedral (founded c.1028) stands as the centerpiece of Dublin's evolution into a dynamic city. Follow the steps that bring you beneath the cathedral and explore the medieval crypt, one of the largest in Britain & Ireland, and the earliest surviving structure in the city.
Quick stop for lunch in one of Dublin's traditional pubs.
Saint Patrick's Cathedral has been at the heart of Dublin and Ireland’s history for over 800 years. It's the largest Cathedral in the country and since Saint Patrick baptized Christian converts over 1500 years ago, this holy site has been a place of spiritual encounter for countless generations. It is the final resting place for one of Ireland's most famous men, Jonathan Swift, author of Gulliver's travels and Dean of the Cathedral.
