The Yellow Steeple is the remains of a 14th century abbey. Installed on a hill in the town of Trim in County Meath, the bell tower stands partially, and offers an exceptional spectacle!
The Yellow Steeple is nicknamed “the Yellow Steeple” because of the colour the steeple takes on when the sun rises and sets. Considered the highest point of Trim, the steeple is visible from anywhere in town. This tower is the only remnant of the Augustinian abbey that was built there.
Note that it is easy to access, and that you can get close to it for free. Be careful however: you will not be able to access the interior, as the building is considered too dangerous for a possible visit of its internal rooms.
Despite this frustration, the site is still magnificent, and has a charm that will take you back in time to the Irish medieval period! To see without hesitation if you pass by Trim!
