  • Heaven on Ear

    "When planning a vacation, one tends to create expectations and visualize outcomes that are rarely, if ever met. Our stay at Tri Phailme exceeded the aforementioned ten-fold. From the moment I discovered the photos of Jim's home, which include an Irish flag flying high over Old Glory, I knew I was making the right decision in booking the first leg of my family's 2014 trek through Ireland. Traveling with my wife and our three little ones (all under 8), as well as my 65 year old mother, our age rage could have presented various obstacles in most places. Upon making our entrance into Tri Phailme, it was immediately evident that this home wasn't and isn't most places. The kitchen jumped right out at us. Its size perfect for our morning breakfasts and evening snacks. The family room just off the kitchen, with its unobstructed views of the Atlantic, offered a comfort and coziness that will resonate in our minds for years to come. Though we had just 6 in our party, the home could easily accommodate double that. Each of us slept soundly throughout and having en suite bathrooms in every room was truly gravy. The kids made the second floor family room their haven, with each night presenting a new board game. To say we were blessed with amazing weather would be an understatement as we enjoyed 75 degrees and sunshine for 7 straight days. This allowed us to spend ample time on the beach which is right down the road. The memories we made in the ocean, with the Skellig Mountains as our backdrop, are the stuff of fairy tales. Absolutely Incredible. For the golf enthusiasts, Waterville Links is right next door and is worthy of its world class pedigree. Just mentioning Jim's name ensured that I got out in the first group and I am forever grateful for that. Teeing off at 8am enabled me to get back to the family with the entire day still ahead of us (after a Guiness inside the clubhouse of course). When we found ourselves in need of an excursion we simply phoned Brenda who readily provided us with her local knowledge and charm. Our day in Knightstown on Valentia Island won't soon be forgotten. With ample eateries within walking distance to the house (Dooley's Seafood & Steak House tops our list) there is a menu for everyone. However, it was the after dinner sunsets back in the front yard of Tri Phailme that will live with my family and I for eternity. Jim, we can't Thank You enough for welcoming us into your beautiful home. My only hope is to one day return. Slainte!!!"

  • Wonderful!!

    "Sean and his son Cathal were extremely helpful and accommodating, very nice people! My boyfriend was due to have knee surgery so the location of this unit was ideal. The bus stop is close, maybe 80 meters or so, there is a really great little market/grocery store that is even closer (just across the street) and a convenience store/gas station right next door. All that and the ocean is right in front of you! I would highly recommend any of Sean's units to anyone!"

  • Lovely home!

    "The house is much larger than the pictures appear but just as marvelous! The rooms are beautiful and the living areas are spacious and comfy. There are 2 king beds and 2 double beds. There is one large sofa to sleep on but it is in two pieces and you have to keep pushing it back together. The other sofas are loveseats. Once you get acclimated the house is perfect. The instructions for the appliances could be clearer but through trial and error we figured out which switches turned the cooker, ect. The washer works fairly well. It's small and in an outside building. There were no instructions on where to find the key but my detective husband finally found it. The skylights all open with a pole and can also have the shades pulled down so the early sun doesn't wake you. This was awesome! It could use a DVD player and some movies because the TV reception is very poor. Also I would have liked a newer coffee maker. We couldn't figure out how to use the old fashioned one. Overall I would say it's perfect for two couples and 2 extra people. Unless small children want to sleep together in the 2 extra rooms. It took us about 25 minutes to get to Carrick-on-suir. Also, there are stairs to all bedrooms so a disabled person would need to know that ahead of time."

County Meath Travel Tips

Meath Vacation Rentals Capture the Best of the Emerald Isle

County Meath is situated to the north of Dublin, Eire's historic capital city. It was once the territory of the kings of Ireland and some of Ireland's most important historic sights can be found here. Meath vacation rentals are the ideal bases for exploring the local rural area as well as the lively city of Dublin. Whether you are tracing family history or want a restful vacation in a friendly country of music and legend, Meath is a great place to stay.

Reasons to Choose Meath Accommodation for Your Ireland Vacation

Choosing Meath vacation rentals allows visitors to enjoy a real taste of local life in this beautiful area. Each small village will have a pub, shop and church, and local life centers around the three. The pubs are a hive of friendly entertainment in the evening, making them the perfect place to dine and listen to spontaneous fiddle music. Return home to your cozy cottage with its log or peat fire after a day exploring and enjoy the fully-equipped kitchen, TV, washer-dryer and other essentials which make your stay perfect. Meath cottages are far more spacious than a cramped hotel room and more economical for families and groups of friends traveling together. The chance to stay in an authentic Irish cottage in a great location will create a lasting memory of your happy visit to Ireland.

Meath Cottages Experience Mild Winters and Warm Wet Summers

Meath's weather is affected by the Gulf Stream and the southwesterly prevailing winds. Temperatures range from 1 C (34 F) in January to 20 C (68 F) in the height of the summer. It can rain at any time, although it is wettest in the winter.

Ireland Vacation Rentals Offer Plenty to See and Do

Meath is an ideal base for those who enjoy walking, fishing, cycling, golfing, horseback riding and exploring historic sites. Horses and racing are integral parts of Ireland's heritage. National Hunt and Flat Racing can be seen at Fairyhouse (home of the Irish Grand National) and Bellewstown. At Laytown, horses race on the beach, making for an exciting local spectacle. Meath has many excellent golf courses with the K Club playing host to the Ryder Cup on occasions. Eire has a culture of crafts and many local gift shops offer wonderful handmade souvenirs, sweaters and gifts. A visit to some of the pubs to hear traditional music is an essential experience.

How to Get to Meath Vacation Rentals

County Meath is very close to Dublin Airport which has daily international flights from all over Europe and the world. The ferry ports of Dublin and Dun Laoghaire (pronounced Dun Lair) are 41 kilometers and 57 kilometers from Navan respectively. Those arriving in Northern Ireland will find Belfast Airport and the ferry terminal are just 150 kilometers to the north of Meath.

Ireland Vacation Rentals near Places of Interest Around Meath

The Meath Heritage Trail runs from Tara to the site of the Battle of Boyne and was devised to allow access to some of the most important heritage sites in Ireland. Visit the Loughcrew megalithic cairns, a 5,000-year-old stone circle, and explore the archeological and historic sites of the Boyne Valley. A day in the compact city of Dublin is a must. A narrated bus tour is the best way to see the sights including the castle, Temple Bar and the Guinness Factory. Closer to your Meath accommodation is the Norman Castle at Trim, built in 1171, and Kells with its 6th-century monastery. The Book of Kells can now be seen at Trinity College in Dublin. Loughcrew Gardens, Tullynally Castle and Belvedere House all make for great days out from your Meath accommodation.
