Extra helpful hosts who went out of their way to help us. Food was excellent, with wide variety of foods that were well presented and well prepared. Room was nice and comfortable.

We highly recommend this very well run B&B.

Very impressive entrance and exterior, matched by the glamorous interior. Beautiful grounds and flowers everywhere- overflowing hanging baskets and window boxes. Our host, Geraldine, extremely helpful, informative,friendly and charming.Great location, so close to Trim castle and a short walk to the center of town. Great base from which to explore the site of the battle of the Boyne, Bru Na Boinne and the hill of Tara. Close to Dublin so a good location for a first or last night out from Dublin. Loved our evening stroll along the river path out to the ruins of the cathedral. This was our favourite and best B&B experience in 2 weeks in Ireland and then a week in England. Ranks as one of our best B&B experiences and value ever. My husband was sure that I'd read the rate wrong!!!

We received a welcoming reception upon arrival, with fresh baked scones and tea. The B & B itself is beautifully decorated. We stayed in the family room suite. It was beautiful and roomy. The breakfast in the morning was fabulous, especially the fresh bacon and sausage. Geraldine provided my 5 year old daughter with some tasty treats for the Trim Donkeys that live across the street. She really enjoyed giving them a snack. The owners were very friendly and accomodating. The bathroom was ensuite and spotless. The town of Trim is a great location, especially if you are starting your tour of Ireland. You can easily walk to the castle, abby, and Sheep's Gate. The B&B is right next to a beautiful river walk that you can take to a ruined abby about 10-15 minutes walk away. It was a stunningly beautiful setting. We loved it!

The price is very good, and everything in the town (the castle, the main business district)is in easy walking distance, including the path along the river, our favorite part of Trim. Magical view out our room window of the ruins in town, all lit up at night. Parking right outside the door. Hostess was friendly and gave us good suggestions for food and drink. Landscaping around the front very beautiful. Breakfast was quickly prepared and top quality, good choices on the cereal/fruit buffet and the hot food menu had all you would expect. A few drawbacks, rooms are small, bathroom and shower tiny, mattresses a little lumpy but we did sleep well. Everything exceptionally clean. Walls a little thin in terms of TV noise from other rooms, could see how this would be a problem on a busy night. Location is right at a busy intersection, so early morning traffic noise was a negative.

Room Tip: Front rooms noisy in morning but good view.

We are a young family with 2 children ages 10 and 14. We travelled from Clifden thru Cong and into Trim for 1 night at Highfield House. We stayed at 8 different B and B's thruout Ireland; Highfield House was the most elegant. Driving up to the Inn, I was taken in by the grounds and the exterior of this grand building. Upon entering, I knew instantly that we were in store for a great stay. This Inn is BEAUTIFULL!!! I mean Ritz Carlton beautifull. Attention to every detail; draperies, art, light fixtures; even heated towel warmers in the bath. The owner; Geraldine, welcomed us with coffee and scones; Geraldine is one of the prettiest women in Ireland we met (and kind as well). Trim is a great town as well. Trim Castle is 200 yards away. We left the Inn at 8am, bought gas, returned our rental car, and we were inside the Dublin airport all within 1 hour. Highfield House comes with my highest endorsement!!!

Right across the street from the Trim Castle, this B&B is in a stately old building with lots of history and character. The facility is tastefully and elegantly decorated. The landscaping around the place is beautiful and impressive. We had an upstairs room with a high ceiling and an old-fashioned bathtub and water closet. Everything was clean and worked fine. We were served a great breakfast in a very nice dining environment. Our hosts were pleasant and accommodating.

The Trim Castle is a wonderful place to tour, but a night in Trim would not be the same without staying at the Highfield House. This B&B is wonderful and has a great view of the Trim Castle. The Highfield House is just beautiful and the breakfast was outstanding as well.
