IES-Dublin: Trinity College

Trinity College Dublin is the single college of the University of Dublin, founded by Queen Elizabeth I in 1592. A long distinguished university when it comes to academics and scholarship, its history is linked with that of Ireland in terms of politics, letters, and social change. Currently, Trinity holds the prestigious status as one of Ireland's oldest and finest higher education institutions.  Its numerous distinctions include:

  • The only Irish university to rank in the top 50 world universities by the London Times Higher Education Supplement university league tables
  • The 7th century Book of Kells, a masterful example of an illuminated manuscript, is housed in its own climate-controlled archive in the university's Old Library and open to the public during the day

TCD is located in the historic heart of Dublin, near St. Stephen’s Green. The campus covers about 40 acres of buildings and green space. Trinity College Dublin is about a 20-25 minute walk from the IES Abroad Dublin Center.
