This was our final stop in Ireland. Trim is a small town outside Dublin, about 45 mins away. The house is amazing. It is a former maternity hospital. The host family was very nice and accomodating. The room was attractively decorated and the bathroom was clean. The mattresses were not the most comfortable, possibly as old as the house. But after a long day driving around or seeing the sights, they allowed for a nice sleep. Strangely, my family, and me especially, were very stuffed up with cold like allergy symptoms while here. We concluded that the age of the house could have contributed to the problem as well as a field with donkeys, goats and sheep across the street. I am not normally prone to allergys, but I was on medication the entire length of my stay here. The breakfast was delicious. Not limited to the full irish breakfast, which after a while got old. A variety of homebaked scones and muffins. As well as omlets and other cooked eggs. If I were in the area again, I would stay here,
