Completed around 1220, the Irish Parliament met there several times in the 15th century. It was also used as a mint for the country's currency. In modern times, "Braveheart" was filmed in Trim Castle.

I only live an hour away and to my shame have never visited before. Beautiful spot, full of history. Try and time your visit to a guided tour, very good value and well worth it. Well done OPW for preserving it.

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!
