Studio Workshop

During the planning stage of Alice’s Loft & Cottages Self Catering Accommodation, research from the Local Arts Council with Monaghan County Council showed a demand for a workshop / studio with live in accommodation.As a result we designed one of the buildings so allow for flexibility of use. The upstairs can be used as a studio or workshop, with artists / writers as an example of potential users. The need for communities for artists in residency, writers for quite surroundings, actors for local productions are only a tip of potential uses.The building has been built to the highest specifications and has certification from the local Fire Authority. The twinning of work space and accommodation is unique in the Cavan / Monaghan / Louth region and can be booked from 1 week to 12 months at excellent rates.Please contact us for more information.

“Myself and my husband Michael moved to Ireland in 2007 for Michaels  new posting and when house hunting we enquired about accommodation  with a studio attached. The estate agency found Alice’s Loft &  Cottages for us and immediately we fell in love with the place. I used  all upstairs for my work and the beautiful scenery inspired many  landscape paintings( Of which Declan bought 4).We have just bought  our new home in  May 2008 but Monaghan will always be remembered.
