This guided tour stops at the entrance of the library. To visit the library, it seemed indispensable to take an audioguide to understand something: on the other hand 5 €/person, it is too expensive.
Dublin's top attraction. I had a tour with the college tour guide (€15) and it was totally worth it. you get to learn quite a bit about the rich history and tradition of the college.
The college campus is beautiful. You can take a college walking tour. Will cost about 15 euro. Go to the Book of Kelly and old library. Will cost 14 euros. A bit steep in my opinion. Or take a self guided tour. There is a college shop as well near the old library where you can buy Trinity branded merchandise.
