In 1851 John Cuthbert Kearney held this property in fee when it was valued at £80. In the 1870s this house was the home of Abram T. Forster. The Forsters and the Cuthbert Kearneys were related. By the early 20th century Garrettstown had passed into the possession of the Franks family throught the marriage of Thomas Franks of Dromrahane, Mallow and Mary Anne Cuthbert Kearney in 1834. Though the main house is ruinous the site is now the focus of Garrettstown Holiday Park, see www.garrettstownhouse.com.
