My husband, 13 year-old daughter and I had just come into Dublin in the early morning and drove immediately to Trim, where Geraldine very kindly greeted us. Our room wasn't ready yet, so she gave us tea, coffee, delicious scones and we wound up having a wonderful conversation with her. We met her husband the next day, who was just as kind and accommodating as Geraldine.
The house is gorgeous -- with high ceilings, lots of light, and nicely decorated. It's literally across the street from the castle, and within an easy walk to the town. The breakfasts were fantastic, and Geraldine bakes all the breads -- my daughter and I felt she made the best brown bread that we had on the trip.
We wholeheartedly recommend this place. It was the perfect spot to start our trip and we'd go back in a second.
