“Beautiful place, lovely people, great food!”
Reviewed 28 January 2012

Stayed here before Christmas with my partner for a night, and I have to say its one of the best B&Bs I've ever stayed in, and I've stayed in many B&Bs across Ireland. Close to town but in the countryside down a laneway, the house is nicely landscaped and beautiful inside, in a cosy, traditional way. Marie and Jim were wonderful hosts, couldn't do enough for us, lit a nice fire in the lounge in the evening, gave us good food and pub recommendations (try Marcies outside town on the river, lovely old pub, Adrian is a great guy).

We got home to a warm bed after a lovely evening (Marie had put the electric blanktet on!). Breakfast in the morning was an absolute treat, I had a full breakfast, good coffee, my partner had a fabulous fruit salad, all fresh fruit and berries, and none of the stuff from tins swimming in juice that you normally get. We also got freshly baked croissants which was a nice surprise! Overall a very pleasant stay

We spent an extra night in Trim and Tigh Cathain B & B, becuase it was just too homely to leave! Lovely warm fire to "put the feet up" after a long days walking, in a beautifully decorated home. We were well advised by our host Marie on the local attractions, best places to eat and drink, and enjoyed a beautiful breakfast each morning, with amazing home made preserves, and pleasant chats. We will definitely be returning to Tigh Cathain and Trim again! Highly recommended!

My husband and I had a wonderful stay for 2 nights in Tigh Cathain. Marie was the perfect hostess, with lots of information at hand about local history. Her son Sean was also very friendly and was able to tell us lots about the pubs and restaurants in the surrounding area. Our room was spacious, clean, warm and nicely decorated- as is the whole house. Breakfast was top class with a wide range of options for all. Cannot fault this b&b, highly recommended if you are staying in Meath!!

Just came back from 3 lovely nights at Tigh Cathain, we were definitely very happy with this place that made us feel at home!
The room was super cosy and lovely decorated, the bed was sooooo comfortable and the electric blanket was the extra touch we loved.
Breakfast was also very good, plenty of choice, amazing pancakes, warm croissants and great choice of jams, the best start for the day.
Marie was a lovely host, always had great tips for the day! We had a pretty bad episode with our little one vomiting during the nigh, all over the cot and linen and I was mortified to have tell her this in the morning...Marie was super supportive and did not for a second, make us uncomfortable, she actually ended up doing some laundry for us, that's how kind she was!!! We really felt at home!
I can only really recommend this place, sure you will love it!

A warm welcome.. a warm fire and and gloriously warm bed! This B&B is a peaceful rural retreat, it made the hustle and bustle of my home in London feel a million miles away. Marie is a great 'bean an tí' (hostess) she gave me lots of useful tips about the general area/pubs/restaurants etc. Added to this the hot croissants with fresh fruit and homemade jam, and I would have happily stayed another week! I'll definitely be back..
