This is a beautiful castle, a nice little walk around. The tour guide was very knowledgeable. Worth doing whilst you're there. My only downside is I could hardly hear most of what she was saying due to the kids and restless children! Had to keep...More

Went on the guided tour of the castle. Only €5. The woman who took the tour was lovely and well educated on the castle. This is a must see for anyone visiting Trim.

Was able to take part in the last Tower Tour of the day and it was well worth it! There is much to explore in these ruins! Cold, windy, but fun.

We toured Trim Castle in October 2017. The guide as fabulous, very knowledgeable and answered all our questions. Can be toured even when it’s raining as the castle has a cover on it to preserve it. Would go back in a heartbeat!

We overnighted in Trim and spent a couple of hours wandering around the castle and grounds both inside and out. Very informative.

A great tour or the castle right to the top. The guide was fantastic and had great knowledge and interest in it. The tour is not suited for someone not so good on there feet. It's involves steep steps. Wonderful views from the top.

We visited with twin 9 year old boys and their 14 year old brother. The grounds themselves are worth a visit but the tour of the keep was the best bit. The guide was informative and fun giving enough detail for the adults but also...More

Yes the tours are at regular times, you should go and google Trim Castle and find the seasonal information. The tour lasts about 45 minutes and is very infoprmative and amusing.

We were in a bus trip! Our bus driver gave us information outside the castle about it's construction and purpose. He then gave us a little information inside, and then left us on our own to explore!
