Organized a hen here for 20 girls. From the moment I rang Ghan House a few months ago to book it, to checking out, the service was just brilliant. I can't recommend this place highly enough. Had dinner in a beautiful private room in the house, food was fab and the staff couldn't have been better. Really could not recommend... More

Having stayed at Ghan House on a number of occasions, I am never disappointed. You can really tell that the owners care about their guests and the house itself. Their staff are well trained & excellent in terms of customer service. Our room was very comfortable & it's all the little touches that make the difference - for example bottled... More

Have stay here on a number of occasions. The staff are fantastic, the surroundings are stunning. You just step into relaxation as soon as you enter. The food is beautiful in particular the breakfast buffet. If you get the chance take a weekend and take a relaxing break in this little gem the heart of beautiful Carlingford.

I think you should write ads for Carlsberg – you are probably one of the best also! Thank you for appreciating all that we do. Day in, day out, every bedroom is checked, every restaurant dinner we serve is the best of what our gardens and locality can produce, made by our very accomplished chefs. And appreciative too, of our... More

...because that's exactly what they left for us! We were really looking forward to our first weekend away together in nearly a year as we checked in to our room (and turned off the rather naff 'Harp Attack' music). However, a visit to the bathroom revealed a disgusting unflushed toilet - yuck, that's just about as bad as it gets.... More

Very old hotel but clean. great breakfast and very friendly staff. Only a 2 min walk into the village, lots of old Irish pubs, with good food. Lovely views close by and about 20 min drive into some great shops in Newry.

Ghan house is the perfect location for a group stay or an upmarket hen party. The welcoming staff, gorgeous location and outstanding food we recieved on our recent stay was beyond reproach.
