Fierce Vikings, fleeing monks and fighting lords – its no wonder that the makers of the movie ‘Braveheart’ chose Trim as the shooting location for their epic thriller. Another thrilling experience is a visit to Trim’s premier pub… The James Griffin, known locally as Lenihans.
This pub is one of the oldest and the last remaining traditional pubs in Meath, having opened its doors in 1904.
Michael first stood behind the counter in 1948 when the legend has it he left Delvin in Co. Westmeath as a young man seeking his fortune in Dublin, but he mistook the statue of Wellington as Nelsons Pillar and landed in Trim instead.
Today the pub is operated by his son Tom who has masterminded a refurbishment to the premises in 2006, while still maintaining the ‘olde world charm’ of the pub. There are many nooks and corners where one can enjoy that quiet drink or meet friends old and new to watch their favourite sport on the many plasma screens throughout the pub.
