Discover the Book of Kells at Trinity College

An art-historical treat is Ireland's national treasure: the Book of Kells, an illustrated version of the four Gospels dating from the 9th century. Since the book, exhibited in the library of Trinity College, is one of Dublin's most important tourist attractions, it is worth booking tickets in advance.

Visit Kilmainham Gaol

The former prison is the largest of its kind in all of Europe. Its history is linked to Ireland's quest for independence from Britain: Kilmainham Gaol was not used as a prison from 1924, 2 years after the establishment of the Irish Free State. In the courtyard is a monument to opposition members executed in prison here after the Easter Rising of 1916.

Once, the mighty and cold walls of Kilmainham Gaol were a prison, primarily for Irish independence fighters: After the Easter Rising in 1916, 14 of them were executed here.
