Trim Castle On our third day in Dublin we woke and had no real set plans. After breakfast we took a walk down O'Connell Street and stopped into the office for PaddyWagon Tours. This is the main bus tour company in Dublin with trips to various destinations around Ireland. We used them for a great tour to the Cliffs of... More

Stayed here over night the hotel was beautiful clean and very comfortable. The staff were all very friendly and helpful the views are spectacular and the breakfast was plentiful. And the hotel was very keenly priced and within walking distance to the town centre that had an array of bars would highly recommend this hotel

Wonderful greens and walking path for relaxed strolling. There was a Hay Festival one day that was kind of pricy for a country fair.

It was worth a quick look but that's about it. I think we would have been fine to have just seen it from our hotel room instead of walking around it.

It's a really beautiful castle right in the middle of the town. I missed the tour so I could only walk around the castle, but its really beautiful.

Trim Castle is located in the town of Trim very near the town center. It was a short walk from our B&B and is an easy trip from Dublin. The castle is located directly on the River Boyne and is the upriver anchor of a mile-long string of historic ruins and bridges. The Yellow Steeple is very near the castle,... More

Upon our entrance the woman at the desk told us there might not be guided tours due to the weather conditions but there might be later if the weather improves and let us in for free to walk around the grounds. I was impressed with her generosity even... More
