Description

Discover the “most precious object in the western world,” according to the 1007 Chronicles of Ulster, on a cultural fast-track easy access tour of the Book of Kells at Trinity College Dublin. Meet your local Dublin guide at the main entrance to Trinity College and marvel at the rich ornamentation and dense symbolism of the 8th-century Book of Kells. This is an illuminated manuscript of the 4 Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. Get up close and admire one of the finest examples of medieval illumination. On the second part of this fascinating tour visit the 12th-century Dublin Castle built by King John where your professional local English-speaking guide will show you all the exterior highlights including the Castle gardens, affording you one of the best tour experiences in Ireland.
