The Book of Kells and Old Library Tour

Trinity College Dublin is proud to bring The Book of Kells, one of Ireland’s greatest cultural treasures to life online for the first time in its 400-year history.

Join us to explore the Old Library exhibition at Trinity, one of the world’s most beautiful libraries and home to 250,000 ancient Irish texts.

Next, discover one of the nation’s most prized possessions which is tucked away in the Old Library. A precious 9th century manuscript, the breath-taking Book of Kells is an exquisite combination of ornate Latin text and intricate illuminations.

Learn about how this famous medieval manuscript was made and discover the rich symbolism behind it.

A visit to Trinity is a journey through some of Ireland’s most iconic cultural heritage.

The Old Library and its extraordinary collections demonstrate humanity’s ability to endure adversity and flourish during even the most trying times.

We have missed our many visitors from home and abroad, and hope you will join us for this truly special experience from home.
