About this listing
Gartland House, a newly built traditional stone cottage finished to an exceptional standard with a period style décor interior. A spacious property with ample space for guests and generous sized bedrooms.
Request room availability when booking.
Gartland House is run by Oliver and Clodagh Gibson. Having grown up watching his parents run Monaghan's largest self-catering business, Oliver had the hospitality bug from an early age. Now, entering in the B&B area, Oliver combines years of knowledge and experience with a thirst to bring something new and unique to the tourism industry in Monaghan.
A newly built traditional stone cottage, Gartland House is finished to an exceptional standard with a period style décor, all completed by Oliver who is also a skilled carpenter and craftsman. Set on a private, rural site just a few miles from main local towns Ballybay and Cootehill, Gartland House has a beautiful countryside setting.

There is lots to see and do in the locality from enjoying countryside walks, fishing in the countless local lakes or getting your hands dirty with fun outdoor activities! Monaghan and Cavan towns have great shopping and eateries also. But if all you want to do is retreat and get away from it all then you don’t even have to leave Gartland House with our relaxing interior and ample outside space to chill outdoors.

Ollie has a beautiful family and a beautiful home. The house was built by himself! It is a fantastic irish style home and the location couldn't be more perfect. For anyone looking for a romantic getaway, a bit of peace and quiet or simple just a taste of the Irish country this is the destination for you. We were immediately welcomed by Ollie even though we were early and he recommended awesome food nearby and a local park with a waterfall for a morning walk. For any photographers out there this place offers minimal light pollution so a great spot for night time photography!
I can't say enough good things about this place, a really amazing stop over on our road trip. Thank you guys!
P.s ask Ollie about his local pub
What a wonderful experience my mom and I had with Ollie, Clodagh and their lovely children! Set in a rural heart of Ireland, Gartland House is a gem and Ollie and Clodagh gave us an extremely warm welcome. They gave us great recommendations for dinner, greeting us the next morning with a hearty Irish breakfast. It was also nice to be able to talk with Clodagh's best friend from my home state! We really wished we could have stayed longer; I highly recommend Gartland House!
