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.

    Trim Castle, located in County Meath, Ireland, is Ireland’s largest and best-preserved Anglo-Norman castle. It was constructed over a 30-year period starting in 1172 by Hugh de Lacy. Trim Castle was strategically built to guard the inland passage from Dublin to the northwest. Also….Trim Castle served as a prominent filming location for the 1995 film “Braveheart,” directed by and starring Mel Gibson.

    This is a beautiful church inside and out. I am Episcopalian myself so I was able to appreciate everything about it. Even though it was built in 1902 it feels like it was built during the Middle Ages. Great place in trim

    We liked the river walk and the vistas of Trim Castle more than the castle itself. Just a lovely walk down both sides of the river afford you splendid views of this old castle. It appeared there were others trails that headed into the countryside from the river trail.

    The tomb of the jealous man and woman is a very interesting folklore and site within the cemetery. Bring a safety pin because the tomb is thought to have healing powers, particularly for dermatological conditions! But you need a safety pin. It’s a quick visit and an interesting read on the folklore. The cemetery is still active. You can combine it with a walk along the river Boyne and a look a several ruins. If you’re up for a long walk, you can walk up to Trim Castle from the site.

    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

    There are so many historic monuments and medieval buildings in County Meath, north of Dublin. The cathedral of St. Peter and Paul one of the Newtown Monuments to be found in the town of Trim; the other monuments consist of two monasteries and small church which date from the 13th century. This medieval cathedral is situated in Newtown Cemetery, on the north bank of the River Boyne about 1 mile (or slightly less) along the river from Trim Castle (famously used by Mel Gibson as a location in his film Braveheart).
    This cathedral is most impressive for its very high formidably strong walls – it was the best cathedral in Ireland back in that era, founded close to the seat of power in Trim Castle by the Norman Bishop Simon de Rochfort in 1206. Today, it is mostly in ruins with plenty of tombstones but the entrance to the chapter house and the refectory are partly preserved. There weren’t many tourists on the day we visited so we enjoyed a peaceful stroll with mostly grazing sheep for company.

    The remains of a pretty and tall historical structure. It's a pity that only this small piece of it remains, but it's still a nice landmark. Surrounded by lovely grassy areas fantastic for a walk/stroll any time of day.

    I'm not sure if my review is valid as we did not do the tour, instead we visited for the Open Night which was a great evening out.
    There were some displays on how the beer is brewed although the lads were far too busy with far too big a crowd to attend to you in the way they undoubtedly would on a regular tour. (You could still see the enormous vats, some ingredients and the preparation area.)
    I say this with confidence because even though the place was packed we were all welcomed personally, given a brief description of what was offer and generally treated with the utmost respect by any of the employees on the night.
    Really nice vibe with great beer, music and food, though in fairness I very much doubt you'd get that on the tour! Well, you'd get the beer which is what counts the most, right?
    I heartily recommend a visit, we fully plan to come back and do a 'proper' tour

    Situated just over the river from Newtowntrim this is another set of ruins well worth a visit if in area. The ruins are of a 13 century priory.

    My only other comment is that unfortunately there are a lot of empty beers can and broken glass bottles inside the ruins which is a shame

    Trim is such a wonderful town with several lovely old churches, the Trim castle and great pubs and shops galore. Definitely a fine example of Ireland at it's best and a most picturesque setting for picnics and lovely walks through the church yards, and along the Boyne River .

    While walking in Trim if you by chance encounter this lovely garden it is worth taking the time to pause and contemplate. A nicely groomed and comfortable park like location.
