The space

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.

Oliver and his wife were a delightful couple and amazing hosts. They went far and away beyond our expectations after they had a succession of unforeseen circumstances on the day of our arrival. Flat tire, road closures and delays, and heavy workloads. Claudagh even escorted us to a restaurant which was far out of her way due to detour routes!

Beautiful bnb built by hand by Ollie himself. Quiet and comfortable in the countryside. Ollie took my dad and I fishing on a beautiful river which is not easily forgettable. His wife and kids are just lovely and it was a pleasure spending time with them all.

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!
