I just returned from the Highfield House for a four night stay after staying with Geraldine and Eddie in the summer of 2010.
My stay was amazingly perfect in every way. Again, Geraldine and Eddie did everything they could to make my stay as comfortable as possible.
The breakfasts were delicious . . . eggs cooked perfectly and Geraldine's scrumptious scones. (Nowhere in the U.S. have I been able to find scones that measure up to hers.) The food is even served on heated plates to keep everything warm.
The entire house is warm and inviting . . . I absolutely love the decor. It's a gorgeous house. The location is perfect. You can walk to the village and find several restaurants. I recommend a pub with great atmosphere named Brogan's . . . had a yummy dinner there.
The town of Trim is such a picturesque place. I enjoyed taking walks along the path next to the Boyne River . . . everyone I met in the village was friendly and helpful.
(If you go to Trim, don't miss the 12:30 mass at St. Patrick's. The soloists who sing at this mass have voices that are unforgettable!)
Without a doubt, Highfield House is a little slice of heaven. Thank you for sharing your warm Irish hospitality!!
