We did a recce a few days previous to make sure the course we booked was in good condition and to locate a venue for our few beers.
Some bars in small towns can be funny about large groups of unknown lads arriving on a Saturday evening unannounced; we needed to re-assure them we were ok to avoid last minute disappointments after our golf.
On our search we called to a number of bars which gave the impression that they were not interested in our business due to the numbers involved. I had stumbled on a website for a bar called James Griffins Trim which we couldn’t find at first but we decide to persevere as we needed a place to go.
Once we got our directions sorted we found the place with ease.
We called and were greeted by the Prop. Tom Lenihan with a warm welcome and a very accommodating ear for what our needs were for our Après golf.
Tom gave us a tour of the bar, lounge and outside area. The place was perfect. Old world bar with lots of nooks and cranny’s, log stoves with real fires, a lovely bar with a great choice of draught beers, craft beers and any whiskey you fancied. After a pint and a chat I told Tom we would see him Saturday.
Following our round at Co.Meath Golf Club Trim. (Great course in great condition and perfect for Society golf) we jumped on our bus to James Griffins to watch the RWC on the TV. The bar was lively with lots of atmosphere. Tom laid of a few surprises for the lads which went down well. We all found ourselves in the outside area where there were large screens with great sound.
To say we found a gem is an understatement. James Griffin Bar on High Street Trim is definitely one of the better pubs we have visited on our travels and there have been a few over the years. This is the first I have written about so well done Tom!
Great day out in Trim and thanks again Tom and staff for your hospitality.

“Great Pub, great craic”
When staying in or near Trim, make sure you visit this pub. It’s a true delight with great Guinness, colourful locals to give you a warm welcome, and lots of TV screens if you’re in to sport. Plenty of nooks & crannies away from the screens as well to just sit and sip your drink, if sports is not your thing. Very friendly staff, and a partially covered beer garden at the back that’s lovely to sit in even when it’s cold outside, thanks to a coal fire in the corner.

“Don’t leave Trim without visiting this pub!”
Called into the pub on the recommendation of a friend who is a local to Trim. She couldn’t have recommended a better place for us. Warm, friendly and full of atmosphere, this is what an Irish pub should be. Service was second to none and the toilets were spotless, was a little chilly for sitting in the Courtyard but would imagine it’s a great spot in the summer. Tom was a fantastic host and we will definitely be back.

“Very great pub in Trim”
A very warm atmosphere, excellent beer, a wonderful quartet of trad folk players made my post-dinner night a really pleasant part of my first Trim visit. Most recommended!

“A must-see attraction in Trim, County Meath”
Traditional Irish Pub, very atmospheric, with friendly staff, live music both traditional and contemporary several evenings every week, very lively. Great pint of Guinness and also serves locally produced Brú beer and stout as well as, of course, the full range of beer, spirits and wine you would expect from a quality Irish pub. Try the whiskey sampler in the wonderful snugs and enjoy roaring fires when the weather gets colder.
This pub is an old style Irish pub with all it’s charms a credit to its owners, and we called in while staying at a local hotel, it is what all tourists are looking for great barman and had great traditional music playing on a Monday night,to a selection of nationalities inc Irish German and American’s. Local people were entertaining…
