  • Historical place! It can get very crowded as hordes of tourists flock to see this prestigious college! Many famous graduates have come through the college’s doors where you can learn about them in the school’s museum! Old buildings makes you feel like you are in a castle! Highly recommend!
  • The oldest school in Ireland, and one of the oldest in the Europe as well. Main camp situated in the centre of the city, near the town and shopping area. Very beautiful campus, some buildings are really ancient. Sadly the grass patch in front of the library was under maintenance and it was closed.
