I walked in to see this from the knightsbrook hotel, it was not fully open so the lady let me in for a Euro. I used the bathrooms which were very clean and had a quick look around. It's really well laid out and very interesting. I intend to come back soon and go inside the castle. The walks along... More

Mostly, we loved the surrounding grounds, wandering around the castle in the late evening, as the sun was setting across the water. T'was a lovely trek about, with the castle in the background. We missed an inside tour because of court and the lack of parking, but hope to visit on our next stay.

Our tour guide was incredibly informative (my husband who generally hates people loved her!), and the castle has a fascinating history!! Highly recommend!

We have taken a spin here many times as it's not far from Dublin and there are nice back roads leading to Trim. The Castle itself is huge and in great condition. It is well worth paying the couple of Euro admission charge to take the tour as the tour guides are fantastic plus you get to stand at the... More

A very interesting visit - our guide Susan was extremely knowledgeable and made the visit easy for us to grasp the history, she had a wonderful sense of humour making it easy to understand. The entrance price was very reasonable so making it available to everyone.

Just stopped for a picture, but didn't go in because it would have been a bit to difficult for me to climb the steps. The grounds were OK. Would have like to have a bit more information about the grounds. Very picturesque!

Fantastic site - well worth a visit! One of the best preserved Norman castle sites in Ireland. Book the tour - it's a great experience! Our tour guide was a wealth information - some factual, some ficticious and some just for fun! The site is very accessible, although the castle itself is accessible only by stairs as the doorway is... More
