Upon finding Trinity College next to Dublin City's busiest (and permanently clogged) intersection most visitors go "Ah ... this is it?" The façade of the Bank of Ireland right across the road is more imposing, true. But the classical view of Trinity College is actually hidden behind the small wooden doors that are the original entrance. Pass through them and you will see the glorious campanile, built by Charles Lanyon, in front of the old Rubrics. This is the view that launched a thousand postcards!
