“Wonderful End to Trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2013

We traveled to Ireland with both our daughters, their spouses, and children. The large group was at times difficult to negotiate but not at the Highfield House. We stayed her the last 2 nights of our vacation before flying out of Dublin. The owners were very accommodating; even made us breakfast to-go on our last morning as we had to leave before 5 AM. One of our three rooms was a tad small for a family with a toddler but the other two rooms were fine. Bathrooms were spacious, rooms were clean, grounds were well kept, and location was very convenient for Trim attractions. We did come back late one night and the lights were all out and it was difficult to locate the key and get inside; however, the other night this wasn't an issue. Would stay again for sure!

I have only good things to say about Highfield House. Our hosts were so attentive. They gave much helpful advice--even the recipe for their Irish brown bread. We really appreciate their flexibility in accommodating our need for an early breakfast on our last day so we could get to the airport on time..Breakfasts were excellent. Our room was sparkling clean, spacious, and tastefully furnished. Mattress was comfortable. The bathroom had the best mirror, inset with a lighted magnification mirror, of any that I encountered on this trip. The house itself is a beautiful classic and is located within easy walking distance of Trim Castle and the restaurants and stores of the town.

We arrived a bit early for check in. Gerry was most gracious and brought us some scones warm from the oven while they finished our room. She provided a selection of 3 jams which were all so good we could not decide on a favorite. Our first night was in a ground floor room which was fine. Our second night she moved us upstairs to a gorgeous room overlooking the ruins. The patio area in the back was quite nice too. It is within walking distance to Trim castle and a good pub with traditional music.

Room Tip: Triple upstairs was nicer than the one down.

Eddie the host was very personable and welcoming. The location absolutely perfect. Our room was very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was great each of the three mornings we were there. The people that leave negative reviews about this place I can only guess they are part of the 2% of the population that are just impossible to please....

Surprised at all the positive reviews, guess we got them on a bad day. On arrival we were asked "do you want tea?" Not really a friendly offer of tea and scones. We had a large room with a double and a twin bed with the head of the bed right next to the bathroom door. Not very good beds at that. The bathroom was very large and modern, but did not make up for the noisy traffic outside at the busiest roundabout in Trim. Heavy truck traffic into the night. Lighting was poor. Breakfast was very good. We had a family emergency and had to leave early and cancel the other two nights we booked. Owner charged us extra 60 E. This was the least pleasant of all the B&Bs of a 3 week trip in Ireland.

We stayed here the last night of our trip before catching a flight for home. Best B&B of our trip. Very comfortable rooms. Immaculate. Fantasic innkeeper. Scones and tea upon arrival. Arranged for early breakfast because we had an early flight with no trouble.

We stayed here the first two nights of a two week trip and were very pleased we did. After a long overnight flight from California, we were offered tea and scones upon check-in. The family room was comfortable and spacious. The location was excellent, a stone's throw from Trim Castle and the Boyne river. A few small easy improvements would get this 5 stars (circles?)--the faucets in the bathroom needed to be tightened and a little deeper cleaning around the shower door. But all in all, it is a great place and I will stay here again next time I visit Ireland.
