Trinity College Dublin

Of all the times I have been in Dublin I have just walked past the college but this time I decided I wanted to see the book of Kells. It was very busy mostly with French students completing workbooks on the subject.the colours were amazing to have lasted all these years and I found it all very interesting and also to realise how little I know of our own history.
I loved the library in the long room. It looked like something out of Harry Potter. They had a small exhibition on illustrations used in children's books throughout the eras. I loved all the busts though as these are what I love to sketch, not that there would be room to sketch here.
All in all well worth a visit
