Trinity College is the oldest university in Ireland. Founded in 1592 by Queen Elizabeth I, the college is in an enviable position in the very heart of Ireland's capital. Located on its own 40 acre site, it retains some of its ancient seclusion of cobbled squares, gardens and parks. The college is famed for its great treasures. These include the Book of Kells, a 9th Century, illuminated manuscript, the Books of Durrow and Armagh and an early Irish harp. These are displayed in the Treasury and the Long Room which houses over 200,000 of Trinity's oldest books. The Book of Kells Turning Darkness into Light explains the background of the story famous gospel manuscript and other related manuscripts. Temporary exhibitions in the Long Room display the rich holdings of the library and encourage research.
