Built in 1727, Ghan House is a 4* AA rated, fully restored, family run Georgian House now in it's 20th year of continuous business with 16 years of awards and nominations (see bottom of page).

We are one of the oldest private houses of its' type in Ireland a tree length from Medieval Carlingford with 3 acres of walled mature gardens.


All of Carlingford's ancient buildings dating as far back at 1210; from King John's Castle, the Dominican Friary, Mint. Taaffe's Castle and old town wall are within a 2 minute walk from our front door. The Tholsel, Medieval Carlingford's old town gate is just 30 metres from our walls.

We are in a wonderful location just one hour from both Dublin and Belfast and two of Ireland’s three World Heritage sites are within easy driving distance - just 45 minutes to Newgrange and a 135 minute drive to the stunning Giant's Causeway.


Weddings
he unique aspect of Ghan House is that you can have exclusive use of the whole house & gardens ~ which means, no other guests apart from your own!

Or your Civil Ceremony & very own private dining room for smaller weddings.
  • Beautiful views of Slieve Foy, the Mourne Mountains & Carlingford Lough - from the gardens, all the public rooms & bedrooms.

  • We have 8 ft high stone walls enclosing the gardens, adding to the privacy & uniqueness.

Most of the weddings we have are between 50 to110 with extra evening guests. However the most our drawing room will hold is 55 guests. If more than this, then we use the ballroom and/or the ground floor dining room.

The easy layout of the house and the fact that you have taken us over for the day actually makes for a more sociable environment rather than just one big function room - I like to think of it more free range than all couped up in 1 big function room - you can escape the band/DJ and join your own guests in your own bar or relax in front of a log fire in the lounge or chill out in the gardens - knowing you'll only bump into your own guests!


Accomodation
We have 12 bedrooms:
  • Main House
    3 double (2 with extra single bed) and one single.

  • Garden bedrooms
    Located 10 yards to the side of the Main House - all with mountain views - no road or car park in sight! We have double, Queen size, King size, twin and family rooms with double and bunk beds.


Restaurant
The restaurant – in the drawing room or ground floor dining room - has views of the gardens and Mourne Mountains. We use herbs from our herb garden and are fortunate enough to have an abundance of superb shellfish from the lough ~ oysters, mussels, cockles, winkles and lobster for example.

The mountain is home to the tastiest lamb in the country ~ Cooley lamb ~ and the outlying areas are the final resting place for the famous ancient epic ‘The Brown Bull of Cooley’. Our butcher has his own beef reared on the slopes of the mountain. Our beef is therefore one hundred percent Cooley or, if sometimes sourced further afield, always one hundred percent Irish.

Venues Booking Guide

Before you shoot off across the countryside cursing your satnav and it's tendency to become irate as it announces that it is 'recalculating' your route, have a think about the aspects that make your venue perfect.

Shortlist destinations with a view to visit your top three to confirm they can facilitate your requirements. If it helps take a piece of note paper with you so that you can remember the conversation.

Size

The first aspect that you need to clarify is the size of the venue. Will they be able to accommodate your needs? Ask how many they will be able to comfortably seat for your meal. Extra seats and bumping elbows generally result in messy clothing and large dry cleaning bills. Remember that you will most likely be inviting extra guests to the evening reception and this will require extra space. Bands and DJs also tend to require quite a bit of room. Check that the venue can accommodate you, your guests, your entertainment and still have room for a dance floor.
