Interesting ruin but nothing special. It is along the route of the Castle River Walk just a bit less than two kilometres from the castle. You wouldn’t make a special trip to see it.

We discovered this lovely ruin on a walk out from trim castle. So peaceful and wonderfully quiet this is definitely a place for contemplation and meditation.

This is a great historic area--it is nice to park your car and walk along the river into Trim, or out of the city to the Cathedral ruins. It is not very well signed, but easy to follow.

We loved walking along the path and exploring all the unique history and tidbits along the way! It was a great way to get a walk in while exploring history and unique architecture.

We found this while walking and exploring the area. Not a lot of information was readily available, but eventually we did find some clues to the history of the Cathedral. Quite interesting and a large cemetary to explore.
