Book of Kells   Leave a comment

Went to Trinity College Friday morning to see the Book of Kells, an illuminated manuscript of the four Gospels created by Celtic monks around 800 A.D. It is a masterpiece of calligraphy and is Ireland’s finest national treasure (besides O’Connor’s pub in Doolin). Then to the Long Room of the Old Library, which looked like a scene out of Harry Potter. Absolutely amazing.

Afterwards we had a stop at the museum for fun with stuffed animals. From beetles to whales, they had it all.

Next, off for a pint and some lunch to balance out our cultural morning.
