Book of Kells

One of Ireland’s finest and most important national treasures, the Book of Kells (also known as the Book of Columba) is an illuminated manuscript of the four Gospels of the New Testament, lovingly handwritten and decorated by at least three scribes in the 9th century. Two of its four volumes are always on permanent display in the library of Trinity College Dublin, which is itself an impressive place to visit. The exhibit can get extremely busy so book tickets in advance to save time on the day of your visit.
