This was a lovely little spot with great hosts in Barry and Maggie. Very clean with a big bathroom and a nice breakfast in the morning. An ideal spot for exploring Meath from a peaceful and quiet location. Barry and Maggie have lived and worked on all but one of the world's major continents and have plenty of local insight to boot! Would recommend this place to anyone... Please note that you will be best off with a car to get here!
WOW! What a fabulous place to stay. Barry and Maggie's home is terrific and even although we were VERY late arriving (after getting totally lost), Barry came out to meet us and lead us back to their home and we spent a lovely time chatting over coffee. The room we had was immaculate and very comfortable. Even tho we didn't see Barry in the morning - because he had already gone to work - Maggie was there to make us breakfast before western off for Donegal. Trim is a delightful town and the accommodation and hospitality at Barry and Maggie's was excellent. If you are ever I that part of Ireland, you hwould have a great place to stay if you choose their home.
