Trim castle is located on the river Boyne in County Meath (The Royal County) Trim is one of the oldest and most historic castle's in Ireland.

This is one of the great Anglo-Norman castle's in Europe. Constructed in 1172 by Hugh de Lacy, he was granted the Liberty of Meath by King Henry II to curb the expansionist policies of Richard de Clare, (Strongbow). 

The huge twenty-sided castle keep, was protected by a huge ditches, moates and spectacular curtain walls. 

Boyne River Walk - On this half day tour enjoy a wonderful walk along the majestic river Boyne. Explore the Cathedral of Saints Peter and Paul at Newtown, founded around 1206.

Although only parts of the nave and chancel survive today, it is easy to get the impression of just how massive this cathedral would have been. You can still see many of the fine decorative flourishes in the stonework, and it has lovely lancet windows. The piscina where the priest used to wash the holy vessels during the mass is also still well preserved.

Discover wonderful vistas - along the entire route as you stroll along the banks of the river Boyne towards Ireland’s largest Anglo Norman Castle.

Visit the remarkable 16th Century tomb of Sir Lucas Dillon and his wife, Lady Jayne Bathe. Their tomb is known locally as 'The Tomb of the Jealous Man and Woman’; their effigies are separated by a sword of state. it is believed that instead of signifying the sword of state, the sword actually represents Sir Lucas' displeasure at his wife for having an affair.

Myths and local legend indicate that the tomb possesses a cure for warts and skin complaints. It is said that you rub your wart on a pin then leave the pin on top of the tomb, as the pin rusts the wart withers and falls off.
