Bridge
Jun 2021
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.

Trim well worth a full day and night visit!
Sep 2019
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.

Structure of historical oldest bridge
Oct 2019
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.

Beautiful bridge

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

Worth a look while in Trim
Jun 2019 • Friends
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!

Beautiful bridge but not very safe to cross....
Jun 2019 • Couples
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.

Not very well signposted - get off the road for best view
Aug 2018 • Couples
If you are in Trim, the supposedly 'Oldest Bridge in Ireland' is right there for you to visit. However, it is not well signposted and if you just drive/cycle or walk down High Street you cross over it unknowingly.
Get off the road to look back at the bridge and then you can appreciate this wonderful medieval bridge.

If you are in the Area
May 2019 • Couples
While this is some achievement it really isn't that interesting or demanding of much time. If you are in the area it is fun to say you have driven over it and take a few pictures of it. Outside of that, I would not venture out of my way to visit.

Absolutely Beautiful Medieval Bridge
Apr 2019 • Friends
The old bridge over the Boyne in the centre of Trim town is an absolutel gem. It is a medieval four-arched bridge at Trim is essentially a medieval structure built after an earlier one was destroyed by floods in 1330. The current bridge can be dated from between 1330-1350
Trim'sown tourism network says that it is "arguably" the oldest non-altered bridge in continuous use in Ireland. Good enough for me! There have been minor changes over the years and some reinforcements but the bridge stands today much a sit has done for the last 700 years! It has so much character and is well worth a visit if you are in or near the town
There is some suggestion that it may have been Ireland's first toll bridge!
