We did this on the spur of the moment passing through. We opted for the grounds and castle option when entering. The $10 'family' rate seemed a no brainer! This includes access to the grounds plus a guided tour through the castle. The interior tour takes about an hour and the guide was enthusiastic and provided so much interesting information.... More

We took a walk around the castle and learned a great deal about the castle and surrounding area. We did not do the Keep tour as a bus just unloaded and we did not was to join the crowd.

We decided to head off to Trim Castle as my son is interested in all things historic. We had been there before and this time too, we were not disappointed: we had a guided tour of the tower and spent time to wonder around the whole castle as well as the surrounding area. Interesting and informative at the same time.... More

Cant give an excellent review because I didn't get to enter the keep...partly my fault for rocking up to the gate at 4pm on what was a very busy day in the town with some sort of cycle race on...disappointed that there was no information room but guess thats why they have the tour. The castle is a wonderful structure... More

Beautiful keep with remainders of walls, more or less unchanged since 13th century. This castle was used for the Braveheart movies, and we see why! Really good.

I tohougherly enjoyed my visit to Trim Castle. We did the tour of the keep, which was €4 for an adult. Fantastic value. Karlos was our tour guide and was very knowledgeable and passionate about the history of the castle. He also had a great voice to listen to, a great asset for a tour guide. The tour took about...

Great afternoon spent running around the grounds and then taking the tour of the keep. Pat the guide was very informative and friendly and kept the tour moving well. Great views from the top. Good value. Well worth the time. Remember the parking meter!!

Part of the movie "Braveheart" was filmed here. The tour is very interesting especially if you are into medieval history.
