It is a rainy day in Dublin so we decide to visit a few educational sites. We head to Trinity College to see the Book of Kells and the Long Room. The line is not too bad and after being hot everywhere we are happy to get a little wet and have some cool weather. The wait is worth it and we are soon inside.
