Trinity College is internationally recognised as Ireland’s leading university, located in the heart of the Irish capital. Founded in 1592, it is made up of 51 acres of land, including the Trinity Technology and Enterprise campus. It covers 220,000 square metres of land with a beautiful mix of classic and modern architecture and, as a result, attracts a large amount of tourists.
It has three main faculties: Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences; Engineering, Mathematics and Science; and Health and Sciences. Overall, they cover a wide range of degrees and qualifications for roughly 17,000 students.
The university library is the largest in Ireland and has to be seen to be believed. It houses six million printed volumes, along with manuscripts, journals, maps and the Book of Kells, an illuminated manuscript containing the four Gospels and handwritten and illustrated by monks in 800 AD. It is one of the world’s best preserved ancient manuscripts and attracts thousands of visitors each year.
Trinity College can certainly lay claim to some famous alumni with Samuel Beckett, Bram Stoker and Oscar Wilde all counted among the university’s past students.
