We were here for one night at the start of July. A beautiful house hidden from the road but ideal for discovering Carlingford. The staff were lovely and attentive and the food was sublime.....I hope to be back soon.

17 of us stayed in Ghan House (dinner, bed and breakfast) on 20/8/16 for a hen party and we uniformly raved about it. The dinner was memorably delicious; the service was attentive yet relaxed and unobtrusive; the breakfast was excellent; the bedrooms were clean and quaint; the venue/location simply ideal. What's more, Sarah, Orla and Paul were great to deal... More

My husband and I booked Ghan House after reading many positive reviews. We were looking for somewhere special to spend a bit of quality time together, three months after our wedding. As we don't get a babysitter often, this was an important weekend to us. When we arrived, we were shown to our room. We were immediately a little disappointed.... More

Lovely meal! I got the 6 course taster menu which was amazing and really reasonably priced. It has beautiful surroundings and fantastic views. A great eating experience with variety and food i had never tasted like caviar.

Beautiful house in a picturesque location. We were greeted warmly and brought to the dining area. The meal was disappointing and pricey for what we ordered and the dining room was lacking in atmosphere on the evening we visited. Despite this I'm glad that we visited as it's a lovely location and we had a nice evening. We left with... More

Carlingford is a very quaint village with some buildings that date back to the middle ages. Set among these is a lovely guest house, called Ghan House. It is quite an old house, and gives a special feel from a bygone era. My wife and I spent 2 nights there recently and found the stay a most pleasant experience. The... More

Carlingford was invaded by the Vikings and Normans, we have castles dating back to 1210, mint, Dominican Friary and old town walls - yes Carlingford really is a Medieval town. We're relatively young by comparison - 1727 - early Georgian. And thank you for appreciating that we are friendly - we all enjoy what we do, love where we live... More

The hotel is very easy to find and right in the middle of Carlingford. It's an old house so all the rooms are different, not all the furniture matches etc. The room we had was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. We had dinner and breakfast in the hotel and the food was gorgeous, no complaints at all.... More

We are indeed very lucky - to have Medieval Carlingford on our doorstep - just a tree length away from our walled private gardens. Ghan House is an old house - built in 1727 - early Georgian - one of the oldest houses of its' type in Ireland and we are glad you appreciated it. We love it! And yes,... More

I think you must have attended a wedding somewhere else - on the same day here, we served starters at 7.11pm, main course at 7.52pm and desserts and tea/coffee were served by 8.58pm - less than 2 hours for a fully served 3 course dinner for nearly 100 guests. If you were complaining about being too quick, you may have... More

we just got done in a two week tour of Ireland. Ghan House stood out as tops. Great foot, good rooms, very kind Inn keeper. If you stay here you are lucky. I cannot say enough good things about this wonderful Inn. Fun town to poke around in and nice lawn for the kids to play with a pond.
