The 12th century, Anglo-Norman, Trim Castle, reopened earlier today after a virus enforced shut down


Trim Castle is known as the largest, best-preserved and most impressive Anglo-Norman castle in Ireland. Guests can learn about the history of the castle which was built by Hugh De Lacey.

For visitors there is the option to visit the many walkways on the grounds of the castle and to view the River Boyne. It must be noted, some of the scenes of ‘Braveheart’ were filmed in Trim.


Staff asks that guests follow the advice from the staff on duty. Toilets will not be open at the museum.


The staff at Trim Castle are looking forward to seeing everyone after being closed due to Covid19 restrictions.
