Welcome Olive and Mabel!

Andrew Cotter Olive and Mabel Dog Friendly B&B Old Rectory

We had the pleasure of welcoming the fabulous Olive and Mabel, two of the internet’s favourite dogs, to our Dog Friendly B&B! These canine companions to sports commentator Andrew Cotter provided him with inspiration during the COVID-19 lockdown of 2020. Their viral videos have made them lockdown-famous with over 40 million views. These two fabulous dogs are now the subject of two books titled “A Year with Olive & Mabel” and “Olive, Mabel & Me: Life and Adventures with ​Two Very Good Dogs” by Andrew Cotter.

“Followed everywhere by whispers of ‘Is that really Olive and Mabel?’ – not to mention the occasional Hollywood approach – the three of them pad around literary festivals, breakfast TV, live radio and even an appearance on Good Morning America.”

We wish them and Andrew all the success in the future and hope to have them back for a visit soon.

Ideal location for a dog friendly b&b holiday

There are many dog friendly restaurants, bars, cafes and boutique shops to visit in Trim town. Trim is a hive of activity yet it is also immersed in Irish countryside, making it an idyllic place to visit. Trim is a fantastic place to enjoy a combination of free and paid activities. You can visit a number of historic sites during your stay at our dog friendly b&b such as Trim Castle, the Yellow Steeple, Newtown Abbey, the Priory, The Sheep-Gate, the Wellington Monument and St. Patrick’s Cathedral.
