One of the top tourist attractions here in
Dublin is Trinity College, and specifically Trinity Library and their exhibit, The Book
of Kells. And it all starts on the Trinity College campus. Visiting this ancient university founded in 1592, is one of the most popular things to
do in Dublin. You can book an easy 13 euro tour, delivered
by knowledgable Trinity college students. This way you will learn great details about
the Universities buildings, history, and monuments. You will see and learn about the famous Sphere
Within Sphere, a bronze sculpture by Italian sculptor Arnaldo Pomodoro.
Then finally, you will be taken in to learn about and see the great Book of Kells- an
ancient illuminated manuscript believed to have been created in the year 800. But I’m not sure you’re really supposed to film in here. Beyond that, I very much loved the Trinity library itself, with its old, dark, dusty
appeal. In fact, it was the exact ancient European library I’ve been wanting to build
in my home. And while the books here are off limits, it was still a lovely place to learn. As a final bonus, we ended up in the Museum Building after meeting a knowledgable man
who offered to show us around. While it’s not part of the main tour you can definitely
just pop into this place as you will want to see this.. It’s an owl, oh my gosh. It does look like
an owl. It is an owl! The whole thing, yeah, look at that. They have these all over, so you can stick
your arm through the wall. What’s in there? Creepy nothing. It’s just hollow wall. Neat! Trinity College was definitely fascinating..
fascinating. Thanks for watching and while you should definitely
