We've spent the weekend in Ghan House and were slightly nervous in advance, having read some bad reviews but also having read many very good reviews. I'm glad to say that the good reviews are correct. It is a lovely, small country house hotel. The perfect getaway for a couple of nights. I use a wheelchair so access is important... More

My wife and I have just returned from celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary in Ghan House - and what a "pearl" it was. After Orla's helpful assistance during the original reservation process, we were warmly welcomed, on arrival, by owner Paul who was very much "hands on" - with his gsoh ! - for the rest of our most enjoyable...

Booked a package of 2 nights B&B and one dinner but were not sure what to expect after reading some of the reviews, but we were glad that we chose Ghan House because we had a really enjoyable stay. The staff were very welcoming, our room was clean and spacious with a tea and coffee tray which most definitely had... More

My Wife and I stayed in Ghan House for a night away. The house is full of the character that you would expect where so many of the 18th century features have been retained. The open fire in the hall was very welcoming as were the attentive staff. The room was tastefully decorated and the en suite was recently refurbished... More

As Virginia Woolf stated “One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.” My husband and I enjoyed a stay at Ghan House. From beginning to end we were delighted with the accommodation, service and food provided. The accommodation was beautiful with not only a chaise longue to relax upon but a large roll top... More

My wife and I recently had our wedding reception at Ghan House and we could not have been more happy every single aspect of Ghan House. The food was beautiful - so good that our friends and family are still talking about it two weeks later, with several commenting that it was by far the best food that they had... More

My wife and I stayed here just after Christmas as a get-away for our wedding anniversary. The whole place is a lovely mix of the classical and the contemporary. Old world charm with modern comforts. The cuisine is excellent and would be hard to criticise in any way by even the most discerning palate. Staff equally and pleasent, warm and... More

We recently (September ) had our civil partnership at Ghan House. It really was superb in every way. Each time we visited the house while planning for our day Paul, both Sarah's and Aoife were extremely helpful.All our questions and concerns were met with gentle reassurance. We also felt that they listened and helped us plan a day which we... More

Exclusive use of the whole house and walled private gardens – is key and what we offer here at Ghan House for your wedding day – together with ‘excellent food and service’. It’s what we do every day – whether it’s for a large group such as yours taking over the whole house (no other guests apart from yours) or... More

It was such a pleasure to stay in Ghan House in mid November. My friend hired a dining room for Saturday evening and we stayed in most of the rooms on Friday and all of them on Saturday for her 50th Birthday celebration. The atmosphere is relaxed and Paul and his team made us very welcome and saw to all... More

Yet another 50th birthday party! And I turned 50 this year too – January 1964 must have been cold! Thank you for appreciating our high service standards.
