Founded in 1592 Trinity College is Dublin's oldest university and its campus is situated on over 45 acres in the middle of the city. Being ranked 49th in the world's top 100 universities, Trinity College is regarded as Ireland's finest University and is nowadays home to over 9000 students.

The students have the pleasure of studying in Dublin's most beautiful historical buildings as well as having the latest modern facilities provided for them such as high-tech libraries and laboratories.
The college's architecture spans almost three centuries and thus provides a great mix of different styles.
