Trinity College

Trinity College was founded at the end of the sixteenth century by Elizabeth I. The set of buildings evokes romantic ideas of an old English university. It has cream stone buildings set around magnificent cobbled square court yards. Entering through the small front portico reveals the first square with the William Chambers designed buildings. The nearby red brick Rubrics buildings that are used as student accommodation are the oldest buildings in the university complex and the campanile viewed from the entrance is the site of the original priory that predates the university. Famous graduates of the university are writers, Beckett, Bram Stoker, J.M. Synge, Jonathon Swift and Goldsmith whose statue stands outside the entrance along with that of Edmund Burke.
