2. Read the Book of Kells
Dublin’s Trinity College library is probably my favourite library in the whole world and looks as if you’ve walked into a scene at Hogwarts! The book of Kells is easily it’s most sought after attraction and is the world’s most famous medieval manuscript. It contains all four gospels of the bible in Latin and has incredible detail and decoration.
The exhibition also goes through the traditional way of making books, including the binding, covering, painting and writing all made by hand in the 9th Century! This should give you an idea just how long it took to make and how it’s survived all these centuries for us to see today.
