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.

This is an awesome spot for photos. The castle, the surrounds and if you're fortunate enough to get good weather it's a real bonus. There are so many castles in Ireland but this one is very worthwhile.

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!
