Sightseeing and history
The Knightsbrook Hotel is conveniently located in the heritage town of Trim, a sweet 35 minute countryside escape from the city centre of Dublin. This small town in Meath County is considered to be the medieval center of power and has some of the best preserved and documented archeological sites in the world.
The Hill of Tara, known for being the seat of the High King of Ireland, is a major historical landmark in Trim, and has been recognised by the World Monuments Fund for being one of the most endangered sites in the world. Meath is also home to the largest Anglo-Norman castle in Ireland, the infamous Trim Castle, built in the 12th century and featured in the film Braveheart; as well as the Newgrange passage tomb built in 3200 BC and neolithic passage tomb of Knowth.
One of the best things about Ireland is the abundance of historical sites to visit and learn from. Visiting each site makes history come to life, as it offers you the opportunity to immerse yourself in the culture and learn new things about the vibrant Irish history.
When most people think of Ireland, they tend to think of rolling green hills and rugged beach cliffs. Although there is much more to Ireland than just meets the eye, the stereotype holds true, because the Irish scenery is simply stunning. Another great benefit of traveling to Ireland is the many opportunities for exploration in nature. Whether you are seeking a relaxing getaway in the countryside or an action-packed outdoor adventure, you have come to the right place.
For the more adventurous, hot air balloon rides offer individuals the chance to enjoy the beautiful scenery and historical sights of Ireland from above. Whereas, on the other hand, a walk or bike ride along the River Boyne, or through the countryside, allows individuals to explore at their own pace. We believe your vacation to Ireland should be a refreshing break from your everyday life, a place where you can get in touch with nature and experience the picturesque beauty this country has to offer.
Meath County is fast becoming one of the most sought out destinations for family vacations, corporate travels, and weekend getaways due to the countless activities available. Aside from the natural beauty and historical sites to visit, there are also many relaxing spas, parks, restaurants, and bars to be seen. If you’re traveling with family, Ireland’s favourite amusement park, Tayto Park, is located just a short drive away from the Knightsbrook Hotel, where the whole family can enjoy a day of fun.
Cooking classes are another great group activity, offering everyone the opportunity to learn more about Irish culture and cuisine in a more hands-on setting. If you’re seeking some friendly group competition, the area has many stellar golf courses, one being our 18-hole championship golf course. The great thing about Ireland is the balance between rural countrysides and bustling cities, rolling greenlands and cobblestone walkways. This balance allows visitors to experience a variety of different activities, guaranteed to make your trip to Ireland a trip like no other.
