And then there was Trim

Trim Castle

Contrary to many other castles around Europe, Trim Castle is a maintained medieval ruin rather than a restored castle. For many years it was the centre of power in Ireland under the ruling of the De Lacy family.

Sadly, today it’s perhaps better known for having played an integral part in the filming of Braveheart.

Magnificent views of the Boyne, I highly recommend visiting it.

Next stop, Newgrange!
