My wife and I visited Ireland for our 25th anniversary. Trim was our last full day before departing in the morning. I only wish that we had gotten to experience this place longer and earlier. The place is across from a great castle (Trim Castle), which we could see from our room. There were fresh scones, and coffee and tea...

This was a perfect location for visiting the town of Trim. We were in walking distance to the town and just down the street from the Trim Castle (where Braveheart was filmed). A highlight was the resident donkeys of the castle which loved to visit with the guests. The rooms at Highfield House were lovely including a very elegant bathroom....

In late October, we arrived quite early -- much to early for our reservation, as our flight was an early one and the car rental and drive took us much less time than we expected. We were exhausted after a sleepless flight and a nervous drive to Trim, but our hosts greeted us with warmth and good cheer -- and...

Loved, loved this guesthouse. Beautifully decorated in period pieces, lovely ambience and very generous hosts. Geraldine was a delight to chat with and told us all the good pubs for music. Breakfast was delicious with freshly cut fruit salad, eggs bacon and all the Irish bits! Great outlook over the river, ruins and the common which had some lovely walks....

We came to Trim without a reservation and asked the Information Center about our options. We were lucky that there had been a cancellation at the Highfield House. Can't say enough about it. The grounds are beautiful, the room furnishings are elegant, and the breakfast was perfect. We had other plans and only stayed one night, but wish we would...

We loved this B&B and would stay here again in a heartbeat. It is in a great location, just minutes from town, across the street from the Trim Castle and geographically in a great location for exploring the sites in County Meath. The rooms were very comfortable and clean. The breakfasts offered at this B&B were outstanding. The hosts were...

Greeted by a lovely lady. Hotel and room were elegantly furnished, but room was way too small for oversized furniture and had to turn sideways to enter the bathroom door as it was blocked by a giant armoire. Was the worst night of the trip with old lumpy mattress and terribly perfumed sheets/blankets. No shower, just a sprayer in the...

This is a good country manor style house, offers excellent location if you are visiting Trim Castle. If you are visiting Newgrange, Knowth it would be about 1/2 to 3/4 hour drive away. Friendly & helpful host, has wifi in room. Room is tastefully decorated though small, it has enough space for all the basic requirements.

We spent our first night in Ireland in Trim. Earlier in the day we went to Newgrange, Knowth, and the Hill of Slane. Highfield House has a great location near Trim Castle. We enjoyed walking the town of Trim, including the paths along the river. There is free on-site parking at this B&B, that Rick Steves says used to be...
