Hike the peaks of Kerry, surf the waves off Sligo, dance to a traditional band in Galway or stroll along West Cork’s beaches. Embrace the outdoors and explore Ireland’s green beauty, gallery-hop, or pub-crawl around Dublin, explore centuries-old castles and millennia-old passage tombs.
Trinity sits in the heart of Dublin’s city centre and over the centuries the city has grown around the university. Dublin is a vibrant, young, and dynamic European capital city and everything it has to offer is easily accessible to Trinity students. The vast array of restaurants, cafés, delis, and coffee shops (most offering student deals and discounts) cater for every taste and budget. Dublin’s theatres, museums, bars, and clubs ensure that there is something exciting for students to enjoy every day of the year. There are plenty of places to shop, whether that’s for weekly groceries or a browse through leading high street stores on Grafton or Henry Street. To take time out to relax in nature, the city’s parks (including Phoenix Park, one of the largest urban parks in Europe), an easily accessible coastline, beaches and the Dublin Mountains are all close to hand. Trinity’s campus contains state of the art, modern facilities including the Sports Centre, Science Gallery, Long Room Hub, and the Old Library all situated on a 47-acre campus of cobbled squares, historic buildings, and green playing fields.
Trinity’s central location makes it highly accessible for all forms of public transport and it is very advantageous when looking for a job, too. Dublin is a European hub for innovation and industry with a large number of global companies, businesses and organisations based here. Dublin’s Innovation District, the ‘Silicon Docks’, and the International Financial Services Centre are both within walking distance from Campus.
