Went here with my family and we had fun walking around the castle grounds (which costs 4 euros for a family tour price). We didn't take the tour inside the castle, for the guide was not available until 11:30am during that time. We were amazed...More

Personally I was not impressed with this castle. Maybe because i spent 1 month in Scotland visiting castles! But it's famous and worth a visit if you are close by!

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!
