How about R. Scott Bakker's Prince of Nothing trilogy? I haven't read it yet, but it is getting rave reviews, and it's next on my list of books to get.

Jack Vance's LYONESSE trilogy is great.
1. Suldrun's Garden
2. The Green Pearl
Robin Hobb has three excellent, but very long, trilogies - and all of them are set in the same universe: FARSEER, LIVESHIP TRADERS, and TAWNY MAN.

Have you read through The Recommendation Thread?
Here are just a few:
Memory, Sorrow and Thorn by Tad Williams
The Tyrants and Kings Trilogy by John Marco
The Farseer, The Liveship Trilogy, The Tawny Man Trilogy - a trilogy of trilogies by Robin Hobb
The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant, Unbeliever by Stephen R. Donaldson
The Fionavar Tapestry by Guy Gavriel Kay
The Door Within Trilogy by Wayne Thomas Batson
The Prince of Nothing by R. Scott Bakker
The Coldfire Trilogy by C.S. Friedman
The Swans War by Sean Russell
The Kings Blades by Dave Duncan
Honestly, though, why limit yourself to trilogies?

No, I see his point. Trilogies are just the right number of books for a series.

It never entered my mind
could you tell us more about what you've read so far? what you like about fantasy in particular?
"good" is such a contentious word, as we don't always agree on the same authors.
oh, and welcome to the forums

The Lord of the Rings is a good trilogy from what I've heard, but I haven't read it yet. And The Inheritance Trilogy was great! Full of mystery, love, action and fantasy!

The Black Jewels Trilogy, of course. *smiles sheepishly* Wonderful read, if a little er... adultish.

The Merlin Codex by Robert Holdstock is brilliant.

Give me liberty!
When I think of trilogies I automatically first consider 'Lord of the Rings'. It's one of those big landmarks in the genre that everyone navigates by- You owe it to yourself to see what it's all about, if you haven't already.
After that there's a plethora of choices, as discussed in the recommendations thread.
Something I'd definitley recommend is Guy Gavriel Kay's 'Fionnavar Tapestry'. I'm normally not that fond of the "people from our world who cross over to another" concept, but Kay puts a great contemporary spin on it.
