Guided Tours

Official Guided Tours of the College Campus

Guided tours of the campus and admission to the Book of Kells and Old Library Exhibition are provided by Authenticity Tours or a designated tour operator.

Authenticity Tours offer a combined ticket which incorporates the cost of a guided tour of Trinity College Dublin and the admission fee to the Book of Kells and Old Library Exhibition.

Lasting 35 minutes, the tour encompasses the four major squares of the College. It provides visitors with an insight into the more than four-hundred-year history of the College, its buildings and their use, its traditions and its life today. All of our guides are knowledgeable and enthusiastic students of Trinity College Dublin.

To take a guided tour, visitors need simply turn up at the Front Gate and purchase a ticket for the next scheduled tour. We do not currently offer advance purchase for a scheduled tour.
