DUBLIN: Trinity College

image from
Just a stone throw away from St. Stephen Green lies the Trinity College. It is the oldest university in Ireland, founded by England’s Queen Elizabeth I in 1592.

Upon entering trough a beautiful archway, you will be immediately drawn to some of its ancient seclusion of cobbled pathway, 18th century buildings and immaculate gardens.

a) Long Room 
Dubbed a UNESCO City of Literature in 2010, Dublin has the finest collection of Artefacts in the Treasury. Hence your trip to Dublin will never be complete without a visit to the “Long Room” in The Trinity College. You might recall a room called Jedi Archives if you call yourself a “Star Wars” Fan.   “Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones.”

On permanent exhibition, is the 9th century illuminated manuscript, The Book of Kells.
- The book of Kells is a 680 pages of vellum containing Four Gospels. It was written byIrish monks around 800 AD and later buried in the ground for fear of the Vikings. When it was eventually rediscovered, it was deposited for safe keeping in Trinity College Dublin in 1653.

Others: the Books of Durrow and Armagh, an ancient Irish harp and many more!

The Gallery do not have a permanent collection. It’s a great place to visit if you like the idea of great new ideas and value opinions. “A collision of Art and Science ” is perhaps the best sentence to describe this awe-inspiring gallery.
