We left after 20 minutes. We were tired and just couldn’t stick it out. Our tour guide was grumpy and we couldn’t hear him. Just wasn’t worth climbing the stairs.

This ruin of a Norman castle from the 11th - 14th centuries is very interesting and well maintained in its state of decay. The tour was very informative.

We enjoyed spending a sunny afternoon wandering the grounds and the adjacent areas - including ruins of the old abbey. There are over 200 steps on the tower tour, which we skipped because of a disability.

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.
