Summary of The Day: Today, join us on an excursion to Trinity College and its historic library, which is home to one of Ireland's most illustrious books, the 9th century Book of Kells.
Before viewing the famous book, visitors pass through an excellent exhibition based on the Book of Kells and other important books written in monasteries around Ireland from the 9th century.
After viewing the Book of Kells visitors are invited to visit the Long Room built in 1745. Once the principal library of the University, it now contains over two hundred thousand books and manuscripts of the Trinity's oldest volumes. Brian Boru's harp, said to be the oldest harp in Ireland, and a copy of the 1916 Proclamation of the Republic, one of the most important documents relating to Irish history, are also on display in the Long Room.
In 2015, Conde Nast Traveler magazine included a visit to the Book of Kells as one of the "50 Things to do in Europe Before You Die."
