The Book of Kells and The Old Library is a must see for anyone who visits Dublin.  This amazing historic attraction is only 16 kilometres away from us at Green Isle Hotel, located inside Trinity College Dublin.

This 9th century gospel manuscript is very famous throughout the world. There are 340 folios (680 pages) altogether inside The Book of Kells.  It contains a richly copy of the four gospels in Latin text.  The book also consists of complex scenes normally interpreted as the Arrest of Christ, His Temptation, images of Christ, the Virgin and Child, St. Matthew, St. John.  There’s a magnificent Long Room, which shelters 200,000 oldest books in its oak bookcases inside The Old Library.  It is so stunning to explore.

The Old Library and The Book of Kells opens seven days a week for visitors to come.
