Trim is a small Heritage Town located in County Meath, on the banks of the river Boyne about 45km. (28 miles) North-West of Dublin. The name comes from the Irish ‘Baile Atha Troim’, which translates as ‘the town of the ford of the alder trees’ and its origin dates back to the 5th. century A.D.
The town of Trim is centred around the magnificent King John’s Castle by the banks of the River Boye
Among its more recent claims to fame is the filming of a major part of ‘Braveheart’ there in 1994/95. Now the castle has been very successfully restored and opened to the public. The reconstruction has made minimal changes to the Castle and makes the best use of the existing structure with minimal alterations.
The town is a hive of activity with many festivals of all kinds taken part throughout the year.
