The Tower of the abbey is about all there is to see, but walking along the river you can see Trim Castle, the Abbey, and the Priory. It good weather it's a wonderful, relaxing stroll.

If you are at castle, might want to walk over across river and see ruin, but beyond that nothing particularly special. Position on the hill makes it photogenic

This is just across the river from Trim Castle, about a 5-7 minute walk. The Abbey is a lovely ruin and interesting to walk around. We ran into a local man who gave us a brief history and was a delight to chat with.

The Yellow Steeple is a really beatiful place, a ruined Bell tower once part of St Mary's Abbey. It's on a height above the Castle abd River Boyne and offers lovely views of both. Easily accessible on foot about 200 metres from the car park...More
