Day 3: Our last full day in Dublin

To begin our last full day in Dublin, a group of students attended Sunday mass at St. Patrick’s Cathedral, a medical church established A.D. 1191.
To begin our last full day in Dublin, a group of students attended Sunday mass at St. Patrick’s Cathedral, a medical church established A.D. 1191.


We had a tour of the Trinity College campus given by a former student. We loved listening to all the facts about the history of the college and fun stories about each of the buildings and statues. Trinity College accepted women to the University in 1904, and there is a statue in the front square of George Salmon who signed the new rule to allow women.


George however didn’t support the rule he signed. It is now a tradition for the women on campus to mock his statue on graduation day.



Trinity College is home to the Book of Kells, an illuminated Latin manuscript of the four Gospels of the New Testament, written circa A.D. 800 by Catholic monks. The Book of Kells is one of the oldest surviving books in existence, and is considered a masterwork of calligraphy and an Irish national treasure. It was such a treat to be able to see such a beautiful work of art!

Another building on campus is the Old Library which houses books dating back to the 1400s. At the back of the library, the Brian Boru's harp is located which is the inspiration for the national symbol of Ireland.



At the very edge of campus is located a science gallery were students experimental projects are displayed. A small group of WiSE students explored the gallery and found an experiment testing whether pine trees could be grown in gravity similar to space by rotating them.


We ended our last day in Dublin with a trip to the Guinness Storehouse. We learned how beer is made, and the science behind what makes Guinness so unique. After attending this tour, we are happy to announce that we are all certified by the Guinness Academy to pour the PERFECT pint of Guinness!
