Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

If you decide to do a walk after visiting the castle, the bridge is just next to it.
Be careful with the cars as it is very busy

If you are traveling around in Trim, we recommend you take the time to drive across this bridge. It is worth seeing and there are plenty of signs to direct you to the bridge.

We crossed this old bridge as we walked around the town and great views of the river and castle can be seen from here. It is an attractive ancient structure.

A nice addition to a small and nice town. Seems there's some disagreement about whether or not it truly is the oldest, but either way it's clearly old and quaint looking.

Sauntering along the River Boyne in the parks surrounding Trim Castle is the best way to live the experience of the beauty and rich history within the small town of Trim. Nothing is overdone or too "touristy". but there is enough interesting history, beautiful walking trails and lovely scenery to clean out crowded city syndrome and lower one's stress and allow a desire to dally to take over. What a great way to recover from continental flight jet lag and really enjoy a relaxed first day in Ireland, just 40 minutes from Dublin airport.

The Boyne River valley is very picturesque. This bridge has withstood the test of time. From the Trim Castle to St Mary's Abbey the short walk over the bridge was a beautiful setting.

For traffic and pedestrians at the same time, which is a pity. Worth to visit when in Trim. Close to the castle.

I can't give a medieval bridge that has stood up to continuous use for over 700 years anything less than an excellent rating. This picturesque bridge is best viewed and photographed from the short path along side of it. If you are visiting Trim, you are most likely visiting the famous Trim Castle right next door. While you are waiting for your time for the guided tour of the castle, take the very short walk over to the bridge to have a look and take a photo - keep in mind the history this bridge has seen!

We walked a short distance over and past this bridge while doing the Trim River walk, but unfortunately, because of it's age, the only way to cross this bridge on foot is to walk alongside the car traffic, which did not feel safe at all....but we wanted to see the priory/hospital ruins which were located on the opposite side of the river.
Regardless, this bridge is very picturesque and definitely worth a look. An added bonus during our visit was to see some local men in the water, fly-fishing right beside the bridge.
