Dublin, a Truly Cosmopolitan City
Few places evoke the sense of charm the way the city of Dublin
does. This ancient city is the capital of Ireland and also the hub of culture in the nation. Dublin’s roots go back well over 1,000 years, and Vikings are the regions earliest settlers.
The sacred and the secular uniquely intertwine in Ireland, and when peering into Dublin’s rich cultural past, this blending comes to light. Conversions of the Celtic people to Christianity opened the door for a blending of ancient traditions and celebrations with Christian holy days.
A visit to Dublin would be incomplete without a visit to Trinity College
, formally known as The College of the Holy and Undivided Trinity of Elizabeth. The college, established in 1592, is Ireland’s oldest college and has the distinction of one of the best colleges in the world. Visitors enjoy touring the spectacular grounds and taking in the sights while strolling along College Park.
The Library of Trinity College is a destination unto itself and draws visitors from all parts of the globe. The library holds a collection of Ireland’s most prized books. Most famously, The Book of Kells which is an illuminated manuscript of the four Gospels written in Latin. The Book of Kells dates back to 800 A D when written by monks in a Columban monastery in Ireland. The Library of Trinity College received the book in 1661, and the book has remained there ever since that time. Must see landmarks in Dublin
