Tours of Trinity
College might be cracking down on rogue tourists, but you can still enjoy campus before you head off for the summer. Wait until nightfall and take a stroll around Trinity at dusk – you might be surprised what hidden treasures you unearth.

A community has come together. Across Dublin and Ireland, artists, musicians and comedians have made the message clear: repeal the eighth amendment. Clubs and festivals have shown their support.

Even the walls across the city have come out to support repeal. From jumpers to jamborees, our artists have shown which side they're on. Now, on May 25th, the country will have that chance too.
