Tour of Trinity College
Trinity College (pictured) dates back to 1592 and was established by Queen Elizabeth I who founded it outside the city walls at an old monastic site. Many of the buildings date back to the 1700’s and are noticeably Georgian with the small windows on the upper floors. The jewel in Trinitys crown, apart from its many scholars and past students, is the stunning Trinity College library, the Irish Proclamation of Independence and of course the iconic ancient manuscript of the ‘Book of Kells’. Worth visiting early in the morning as the old library can be busy in the afternoons.Trinity College is located right in the centre of Dublin city, only a stones throw from the medieval streets of Templebar and the shopping area of Grafton Street, a stroll through Trinity is really a great way to soak up the atmosphere of Dublin, the old cobbled walkways, the buzz of visitors, Dubliners and students all mixing together. On a day tour of Dublin, be sure to take time and drop into Trinity. With our private Day Tours of Dublin, we can bring in a visit to Trinity College on any of our private day tours of Dublin or Wicklow so its worth discussing your touring options with your driver-guide when you meet and we can advise you on how best to plan your visit to Dublin.

We spent a lovely day with Ciaran of Ganters Chauffeur Drive, driving around Dublin on a private tour. Ciaran was professional, extremely knowledgeable and just a lovely guy – a brilliant representative of Ireland. He did particularly well to keep me, my husband and my 70-year old mother entertained, as we were all interested in seeing different things. We had just the right amount of time in and out of the car. Thank you for creating such a great memory of Dublin for us.
