“"welcoming and delightfull B&B"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2012

We stayed for only one night, but wished to be able to stay longer. The hostess was very welcoming and friendly. We had our 3month old baby with us and she was very keen to make us all comfortable and happy. Definitely a place to go back to and recommend to others.
Close to the town of Trim and very easy to find. Close to surronding sites of interest.

We stayed at Tigh Cathain for our last two nights in Ireland last week. The location was perfect for our morning flight out to the USA--the drive was under an hour and the roads were easy to navigate in the dark.

Marie is a lovely hostess and the B&B is cozy and cute. Our room (#1) was large and welcoming--it could have slept four people, but we were only two. The double bed was comfortable and Marie had an electric blanket on to warm it even before we checked in. The room was comfortably warm and large enough for us to spread out our stuff for re-packing for the trip home. The bathroom was also large and well-stocked with everything we needed. The shower was strong and SOOOOO hot...we actually had to turn it down to the lowest setting!

The house is filled with flowery-themed knick-knacks and reminded both of us of our grandmas' houses...in a very good way. It's anything but sparse or institutional--which is a welcome contrast to impersonal hotel rooms.

Breakfast in the dining room was generous and traditional and ready just when we had requested. On our early check-out morning (we left before 6), Marie had set out a continental breakfast for us to help ourselves.

Marie was also very helpful in suggesting places to explore and find food and drink. We took her suggestion to go to Marcie's pub and are so glad we did!

All in all, this was a great B&B stay--a visit to Trim and to Tigh Cathain is definitely worth including in your Irish travel plans!

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!!
