Featured in Braveheart! The largest, best preserved and most impressive Anglo-Norman castle in Ireland. It was built over a thirty-year period by Hugh de Lacy and his son, as the home of the Lordship of Meath. The castle may look familiar to many visitors as Mel Gibson’s film, Braveheart was filmed here in the 1990s! In Medieval times, this massive, twenty-sided tower stood like an imposing and powerful stone symbol of Norman strength at the edge of the Pale. Tours are available daily during the summer and at weekends in the winter. Don’t forget to visit Trim Visitor Centre beside the castle, located in the historic town hall building, it houses the Medieval Armoury Tour, Trim Castle Tours in winter, tourist information and a great gift shop. Trim is about 30mins from Bovinda Cottage.

Trim Castle, Ireland's largest Anglo-Norman castle is a must-visit in the historically rich Boyne Valley in Trim, County Meath. It was constructed over a thirty year period by Hugh de Lacy and his son Walter as the home of the Lordship of Meath. Trim Castle is a stunning Norman castle on the south bank of the River Boyne. This magnificent site experienced a renaissance in 2000 when it was opened to the public after being excavated and restored. The movie Braveheart with Mel Gibson was filmed at Trim Castle in 1995. Access to the keep is by guided tour only for safety reasons. Visitors can learn more from interpretation panels and enjoy the impressive grounds of the castle. Trim, a designated heritage town, is renowned as one of Ireland's most beautiful towns and is believed to have more medieval buildings than any town in Ireland. With Trim Castle on its doorstep, it’s a town well worth a visit. I also recommend a trip to Marcie Regan's, Lenihan's or the James Griffin pub, and Franzinis restaurant.

Norman Castle, really amazing, a true fortress, interesting tours and great view from the top. This castle was used in the making of Braveheart and you can see some of the set props, still on display in the little coffee shop, on the main street just around the corner of the castle entrance, against the castle wall.

Trim Castle, the largest Anglo-Norman castle in Ireland, was constructed over a thirty-year period by Hugh de Lacy and his son Walter. Hugh de Lacy was granted the Liberty of Meath by King Henry II in 1172 in an attempt to curb the expansionist policies of Richard de Clare, (Strongbow). Construction of the massive three storied Keep, the central stronghold of the castle, was begun c. 1176 on the site of an earlier wooden fortress. This massive twenty-sided tower, which is cruciform in shape, was protected by a ditch, curtain wall and moat. About 25min by car from Maynooth.
