Trinity College dublin

Trinity College and the Book of Kells

The Old Library and the Book of Kells Exhibition is a highlight on the Dublin tour. Located in the heart of the city, a walk through the cobbled stones of Trinity College will take you back to the 18th century, when the impressive Old Library building was constructed. Inside, you will find the Book of Kells, a 9th-century gospel manuscript famous the world over. Known for its remarkable decoration, it contains the four Gospels in Latin, written on prepared calfskin, known as 'vellum'. The Book of Kells is generally thought to have come from the scriptorium of a monastery founded around 561 by St Colum Cille on the island of Iona. In 806, following a Viking raid, the Columban monks took refuge in a new monastery at Kells, County Meath. It has been on display in the Old Library at Trinity College Dublin since the mid 19th century, and attracts more than 500,000 visitors a year.


The Irish Museum of Modern Art

The Irish Museum of Modern Art

The Irish Museum of Modern Art is Ireland’s most prestigious authority on the collection and presentation of all modern and contemporary art. It is housed in the Royal Hospital at Kilmainham, which is thought to be the most beautiful 17th-century building in Dublin, reflecting the style of the Parisian infirmary Les Invalides, with a formal façade and big courtyard. So, for those of you who love art, the IMMA will not let you down.
