Although a blue book recommendation we found nothing special about this venue. Food is good but dinner menu is limited. Room and service were average. Location though is excellent if visiting Carlingford.

Visited Ghan House to attend a friends wedding and although I had book accommodation elsewhere I ended up staying in Ghan House due to the rudeness and inhospitable of the owners of Belvedere House which I would strongly advise giving a miss. Ghan House is a wonderfully quaint and traditional venue perfect for an intimate occasion and comes access as being very welcoming, warm and just what you want on a short break. It was perfect for a small wedding. The food especially the fish was absolutely amazing, compliments to the chef! I would fully recommend Ghan House to anyone wanting to stay in Carlingford and in truth the owners and staff really rescued my opinion of the area and the people after such a bad experience at Belvedere House.

Ghan House offers everything you need to enjoy a relaxing break. The food, from the breakfast to the evening menu is amazing. Paul and his team are very attentive and yet you get the feeling it is your home while you are there as there is such a relaxed atmosphere throughout. We parked our car when we arrived and it did not move again until we left, Ghan House is so close to Carlingford you can spend hours walking the greenway to Omeath or some of the loop walks close by with the knowledge that you will have a wonderful meal waiting for you when you return.

The Ghan House is just lovely. I had three days in Carlingford and I couldn’t have picked a better place to hideout and relax. Paul and his team were excellent. My room was lovely, comfortable and cozy. The breakfast just right and the location divine. Everything I needed was within walking distance, and if you enjoy walking and hiking, the Carlingford Lough and surrounds provides some wonderful experiences.
