“A Lovely B&B”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

A friend and I traveling in Ireland stayed at Tigh Cathain in October, 2013. Marie welcomed us to her quiet retreat right outside of Trim. Her house was filled with family mementoes, which made it all the more homey. Her breakfast menu was varied to accommodate omnivores and vegetarians (like me). Breakfast eggs came from her chickens and were graced with herbs and flowers from her garden. The table was set so beautifully it seemed a shame to eat from the dishes. Marie set the B&B bar high for the rest of our visit.

Thanks to Marie for sharing her lovely B&B with us. We were at a stage of our trip where I needed a great place to stay, and I got it. I wish we could have stayed longer. Trim is an interesting place to visit because of Trim Castle and Bru na Boinne.

My husband and I stayed at Tigh Cathain in late September on our way to Dublin. I wish we would have been able to stay longer. Marie was very pleasant and welcoming. The room was crisp and clean--very comfortable. Enjoyed breakfast. The house is full of memories reflected in the furnishings, china, figurines, etc. The location is outside of town but since we had a car, this was not a problem. Loved the dog, Susie! I highly recommend this delightful B&B!

I, my wife, and sister-in-law stayed at Tigh Cathain for 3 nights in late September. We had just finished a hiking tour in County Galway and our plan was to explore the historical sites in County Meath before finishing our Ireland trip in Dublin. Tigh Cathain was the perfect location! Marie was an excellent hostess who provided us with all the "inside information" we needed. She made us feel very comfortable in her lovely home. We all enjoyed the great breakfasts and slept very well in the comfy beds. Our room was very spacious and we also enjoyed the use of the guests' sitting room to enjoy a glass of wine while discussing the events of the day. We would love to do it all again!

Cute, cozy, comfy! As a mama who is used to caring for everyone else, I so enjoyed sitting at Marie's breakfast table and feeling completely looked after! My boyos requested hot chocolates which were specially whipped up and served with a smile. I arrived with damp socks and slippers which I hung over the arm of a chair. When I couldn't find them next day, it was because they had been put into the warming closet! A perfect start to our days in Ireland. Highly recommend and hope to visit again!

We stayed at Tigh Cathaine our first night in Ireland. It is a very warm and inviting cottage. Marie was very welcoming. She prepared a wonderful full Irish breakfast. The room was very pretty all done up in white. All the toiletries are provided and there is a hair dryer provided. We enjoyed our visit and would stay again

Great place. Beautiful crockery. Marie gives a lovely welcome, loads of good stories,very clean,quality breakfast, but Jim is under used. Wheel him out, definitely worth more than a back room kitchen worker !! We will be back.
