Halloween is over and before you know it the shops will be blasting out the Christmas music and you will be writing up your Christmas shopping list. A lot of us forget that Christmas and the holiday season is also about spending time with friends and family. Catching up with friends that you may not have seen since last year, spending time with family that have been good to you over the year and relaxing and enjoying yourself when you have some time off.

With that in mind we have come up with the top 5 things to do in Trim over the Christmas period so you can start making plans with your loved ones.

  1. Christmas party nights in the Castle Arch Hotel

A great way to spend time off this Christmas is by taking a walk around Trim with the new Trim Passport. This passport is an initiative of Trim Tourism Network and brings you on a looped walk of the town and all of the historic sites. This is a great activity to do with family or friends visiting the area. You can get a passport in the Stock House Restaurant, Trim Visitor centre or the Castle Arch Hotel.
