Address Trim Castle Castle St, Trim, Co. Meath, C15 HN90, Ireland

Trim Castle is the largest in all of Ireland at 30,000 m2. The fortress tells part of the history of the country, including the clan wars.

It is in the XIIe century that the construction of the castle of Trim, in the county of Meath, begins. The location is chosen to allow access from the sea, via the river. Located to defend the region, it was exploited and fortified by the British to counter attacks by the Gaels. Later, especially after the Cromwellian conquest of Ireland, the castle passed from hand to hand before being abandoned. Renowned for its complex Norman-style architecture, this building, now in ruins, is open to the public from Easter to Halloween.
