“Fantastic Wedding Day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2012

We had our wedding reception in Ghan House on the 17th August 2012, and it was absolutely fantastic! From the time we originally viewed the venue up until the actual day of the wedding, Paul and the staff could not have been more helpful or accommodating. We had around 55 guests to the whole day with another 25-30 in the evening, and almost all of our guests commented on how great the venue and food was.
For anybody looking for a relaxed and intimate wedding venue, we could not rate Ghan House Highly enough.

I have just visited Ghan House for a short stay with my elderly parents and can honestly say that we had a fantastic experience from the moment we arrived right up until our departure. The charm of the house is certainly complimented with the friendly, genuine and attentive service, indeed the welcome and continued hospitality we encountered from Paul and his team was second to none. This along with the superb food, cosy open fires and authentic country house ambiance all contributed to us having a wonderful, relaxing stay. Excellent, central location in Carlingford, yet manages to feel secluded and private.

We stayed two nights in August and I would have no hesitation in recommending Ghan House.

We had the tasting menu which was really fab. The quality of the produce shone through. The breakfasts were superb too, as was the service and the setting.

We defintely will be back.

A friend recommended Ghan House to us for a short break, and we took their advice and booked a two night stay in late August. We were not disappointed !

Centrally set in the stunning beauty of Carlingford, Ghan House offers the intimacy and relaxed ambience of a country house with comfortable, homely accomodation, and food which we found to be quite simply magnificent. Coupled with an engaging owner, Paul, and his team who offer a personal and friendly service which is second to none, we found Ghan House to be excellent in all respects.

We stayed for two nights before heading up the coast to Larne and across to Scotland, and found Ghan House, Carlingford, to be an ideal stopover option on the journey to or from Dublin.

We had a lovely stay at Ghan House. Loved the house and it's atmosphere. Very friendly and helpful staff. Food to die for.The breakfast was a buffet of juice, cereal and fresh fruit. And a choice of hot meals to order freshly cooked. The evening meal was superb. We were lucky enough to go on an opera night and had a taster menu. The hotel is centrally located.

We went back to Ghan House to celebrate our 3rd anniversary (we got married in Carlingford and had our reception at Ghan House) and found the place to be just as wonderful as we remembered.

We were warmly welcomed, and had booked into the lovely room we had when we got married, with lovely views over the garden and out to Carlingford Lough. As per usual there was nice music playing from the small music system in the room and homemade cookies awaiting.

Breakfast was a delicious, leisurely affair, and the food and service at dinner was wonderful! It rained during the day, so after a short tour of Carlingford, we lounged in our lovely large room and used the large old bath tub. SInce it was a bit chilly, there was a nice fire set in the entry way...

Can't wait to go back again soon : )

We had our wedding reception in Ghan House on Sunday 5th August, and i really want to thank them for helping to make our day so special. We wanted to have a small (40 people), relaxed wedding where the food was star of the day. Firstly when we met Paul he was so accomodating and helpful to give us exactly what we wanted for the day (and this was in direct comparison to a few other places we tried that treated us like 2nd class citizens for wanting a small wedding), so we were delighted with the treatment we got and everyone that we dealt with in the run up to the wedding (particulary Paul and Sarah) were very friendly. Then the day itself was absolutely wonderful, the food was excellent and the service was very friendly and helpful. The feedback and reaction from all of our guests was brilliant, and this really went towards making it such a great day. Ghan House has that small Irish country house charm, that makes you feel at home and comfortable. If this is what you want for your wedding day, I cant recommend Ghan House highly enough.
