Trinity College

Worth a spin is Trinity College, home of structures such as the Campanile above and the Sphere Within Sphere. You should also stop by at the Old Library which has the Book of Kells, a copy of the four gospels that was over-embellished by monks who might have been on mushrooms at the time. No seriously, you really have to see some of the pages to understand that comment.

After you've been through the Book of Kells exhibition, you come out into the Long Room which is an amazing, breathtaking library that you might only have seen in fiction. These places exist! You just want to go up and caress the books and tease the archaic secrets from their tightly bound leaves.

And if that doesn't shock you out of your web-surfing slumber, go read this, right now.
