“Beautiful Bed and Breakfast”
Reviewed July 29, 2014

I loved my stay at the Tigh Cathain. We arrived into Trim at 8am after traveling all night and all day yesterday only to be welcomed with love and a fantastic breakfast! From the homemade fruit condiments to the gluten free bread to the scrambled eggs, the breakfasts were phenomenal. For the other half of the B&B, the room we stayed in was great. The beds were comfortable, and the room was spacious. The only negative about my stay at the Tigh Cathain is the lack of reliable wifi in room 3, but everyone else in the house had it fine. I highly recommend this B&B over all others!

Room Tip: Room 3's wifi is spotty; other rooms have more reliable wifi.

We got into Dublin early in the morning and went directly to this B&B from the airport. Marie had a wonderful breakfast waiting on us, including gluten free bread for two of us, and the most amazing homemade jams! The rooms were quite comfortable, the gardens absolutely beautiful, and Trim was a wonderful town to explore. Marie had many suggestions for activities and tons of brochures to help us plan the rest of the trip. And when I came back from exploring the castle all muddy and a mess (don't listen to children who tell you that you can jump the moat), Marie cleaned up my white pants just like new! Cash only however, so make sure you plan accordingly!

Room Tip: Room 2 had little water pressure but roomy. Room 3 had a better shower but smaller bathroom. It was...

We stayed at the B&B at both ends of our trip. Two nights at the beginning and the night before leaving. Very charming house. Comfortable and welcoming. The proprietor (Marie) was very helpful and breakfast was great. We would definitely stay there again. We prefer lodging a little outside of town because it is quieter. Tigh Cathain fit the bill perfectly. 15 minute walk into town (some hills) and easy drive if you prefer. Trim is a nice little town and was one of the highlights of our trip.

Trim was the last stop on our vacation in Ireland, and I'm SO glad we found Tigh Cathain rather than an airport hotel. Just 40 minutes from Dublin airport, this lovely, peaceful B&B was the perfect spot to finish our trip on a high-class, yet affordable note. Host Marie is lovely, welcoming, and accommodating of special requests. Her pretty house is full of antiques and little, lacy touches that make guests feel like they've landed in a country house with all the trimmings. Marie's breakfast was one of the best of our trip-- fresh fruit bowl with 10 fruits, great, hearty fare, beautiful presentation with fresh flowers--all you could ask for. Into or out of Dublin airport? Start or finish your Irish sojourn with Tigh Cathain and Marie!

Room Tip: All the rooms are beautiful--you can't go wrong.

We chose this B&B for access to the many historical sites near Trim and it was perfect for this. The room was clean and spacious, everything worked (including the free internet). There were few other amenities, but we weren't looking for this either. The breakfast was good. I had scrambled eggs and my husband tried the full Irish breakfast, which was enough to feed two. Overall it was a nice place to stay with great access to the local sites.

A spotless B & B in a lovely setting with a fantastic host who made us feel at home as soon as we arrived. The breakfasts were lovely with a good choice and they were knowledgable on local attractions and nothing seemed too much trouble. It was only a weekend visit but we will probably be back in the future for a longer stay.

A spotless and lovely room, and out-of-this-world breakfast. Mrs. Keane makes jams from her own garden fruits, and serves a wide selection of breakfast items, including fresh eggs from her own hens (no roosters). Absolutely delicious.
