My husband Jason and I got married here may 2018. We both had the most magical day from start to finish. Paul and his team were incredible from start to finish and very attentive throughout the day. (Especially the wonderful staff member that that made sure I got some of the lovely nibbles when i was off getting photos done) The food was divine and cater well for all dietary needs. All our guests loved the venue and I couldn't think of a better place to celebrate such a special day.

One word to describe Ghan House, Professional. From the first tentative enquiries to the big day they were great. Nothing was a problem, any request we had was catered for. The venue is second to none, we are a mature couple and Ghan House was the ideal venue for us and our 65 guests we had exclusive use of the house and grounds for the day which made it extra special. All our guests were very impressed with the venue, the food, the glorious wine and the service. A big thank you to the people at Ghan House for making our day so special and so much fun. We would highly recommend. Donal & Loretta

We celebrated our wedding in Ghan House and it was lovely, really lovely. Beautiful views of Carlingford Lough were matched by the beauty of the venue itself. Hosted by Paul and the extremely accommodating, friendly staff the day couldn't have gone better, as you can imagine these events can be extremely stressful at times but the professionalism and courteous manner of the staff certainly eased any doubts or stress. The beauty of the venue and location was on par with the amazing food- a delight to look at and a delight to eat. We personally had a great day celebrating our wedding surrounded by friends and family and Ghan House played an integral role in this. Everyone seemed to be ... Read more

Exceptional, beautiful, intimate, personal, hospitable venue. We couldn't have asked for more. From our very first contact, we were made feel important. Traditional hospitality and customer service. So personal and friendly. It's a beautiful hotel, exquisite food, excellent location and hosts are so accomodating and make you feel special. Yet all the while economically very reasonable. I wouldn't have changed a thing and cannot praise the whole establishment high enough. The intimacy and personalising shone through over a corporate commercial conveyor belt approach in large venues or franchised brands. It's a beautiful hotel, and feels like home from home setting for such a special family event. We hold Paul and the team in Ghan House very close to our hearts ... Read more

The Ghan House was the only choice for us. Not only because we had a long tradition of eating here for special occasions, but the location, hospitality, food, staff and ambience are second to none. We knew we were guaranteed the intimate, relaxed day that we were looking for. Everything from going to book, to communicating in the run up, through to the day itself was handled with ease and professionalism. We had every confidence that everything would be delivered and dealt with as discussed, which enabled us to enjoy the run up and day itself to the full. With the bridal party staying the night before and waking up to a lovely breakfast in the house, the day could ... Read more

I can't speak highly enough of Paul,Sarah and the team at Ghan House. We had our family & friends dinner on March 3rd 2018 to celebrate our marriage. First is the house. WOW! The moment you walk in, you get the sense that this is not just a business, this is the pride & joy of the owners. Every detail from table cloths to furniture is just perfect. Every room, every corner tells a story. The beautiful chandeliers, the piano, the fireplaces, the small things just gives that feeling of being in somebody's home, somebody who cherishes and loves this beautiful house. Second, the food. There is just one word - homemade. From the homemade shortbread cookies in every room ... Read more

We only went to see one wedding venue, Ghan House. When we arrived without an appointment Paul stopped what he was doing immediately to show us around and we loved what we saw and heard. Their concept of a laid back wedding with full use of the house was exactly what we were looking for. The communication up until the day was fantastic, both Sarah and Orla were always on hand to help. The day itself was wonderful. We couldn’t have asked for more and will never forget it. The house and grounds are beautiful and the food is out of this world. Restaurant standard food is hard to find at a wedding venue and Ghan House exceeds most restaurants ... Read more

From the day myself and Brendan met with Paul from Ghan House, I knew we were in good hands. From the time we secured the date, every email, phone call and meeting was made effortless by Paul and his staff. On our wedding day ourselves and our guest were treated like Royalty. The staff couldn’t do enough for us. I remember telling Paul I was starving while we were getting photos done and out he pops with a plate of the most gorgeous sandwiches for me. The food on the day was 5 star, absolutely magnificent. Every one of our guests said the same. And they catered for every diet requirement. We didn’t want the day to end. Paul and ... Read more

We wanted an intimate, relaxed, romantic and fun wedding with family, friends and food at the centre and that is what Ghan House delivers! We live in the UK so that could have added an extra complication to the organisation but from the initial enquiry and then liaising with Paul and the team in the lead up to the wedding, they made the whole process easy. The team were accommodating to our requests but also extremely helpful in suggesting alternatives and suppliers etc. The venue is beautiful and really doesn’t require much dressing; the gardens provide a great backdrop to your photos, as does the house itself. We had good weather so were able to use the garden in the ... Read more

From the moment we saw Ghan house we knew it was the one for us. Paul and Sarah made us feel so very welcome when meeting with us to discuss our day. From the stunning location to the gardens and the house it's impeccable. Not to mention the food which is absolutely sublime. We are so grateful and lucky to have the best day of our lives and with thanks to Paul and the Ghan house staff. We can not recommend The Ghan enough to people that want a unique wedding. Peace and Love The Greens

We had our wedding at Ghan House with 110 guests in October 2017 and we couldn’t have been happier with the decision. Paul the owner was fantastic! Extremely helpful, courteous and no request turned down. If something could not be facilitated, he was more than happy to offer up alternatives. You were made to feel like the house was ours for the day, a real Lords of the Manor vibe. The atmosphere throughout the day was amazing. The weather wasn’t great, but the fires were blazing as we arrived at the drink’s reception of Prosecco, Local Beers from the Carlingford Brewery and Carlingford Oysters that just added to the homely feel, and relaxed mood we wanted for our day.

My wife and I were married in Australia in 2016 in a very small ceremony, therefore we decided to return home for a celebration with extended family and friends in January ‘17. We decided on Ghan House for numerous reasons, some of those being the beautiful surroundings of Carlingford, the grounds of the house, and the unmatched feel and character of the house itself. We had a winter celebration complete with open fires and the atmosphere was perfect. There were approximately 100 guests, which is considered a large reception for Ghan House. This didn’t present any problems whatsoever, and we were even able to have a five piece band for our after dinner entertainment. The food at Ghan House is ... Read more

Paul and his team were very helpful from the start. Organising a wedding is very stressful (especially as we live abroad) but nothing seemed a problem and Paul found a solution to everything: speeches outside? done! Anytime we want? Done! Flowing bottles of Champagne coming from France? Done! The venue is beautiful in itself, a lot of character, so apart from a few flowers, you don't really need to bother about decoration. We were lucky enough to have the aperitive outside on the lawn which was amazing. My husband is Irish but I'm French, and I was looking for something a bit different from the set-menu and rigid packages that most other hotels offer. As we were looking for wedding ... Read more

Me and my wife decided to have a wedding in Carlingford, and for sure the best place we have chosen is Ghan house! Could not ask for more. Paul is a wonderful man and real gentlemen! Service is TOP class! Could rate 5 stars! To our surprise, we were amazed with the kitchen! Best food ever!!! We can't forget how good it was. Even our cake was fixed, as we did destroy during travel. Place is amazing, feels like home, just 10 times better :) Will recommend to everyone.

We had an absolutely perfect wedding day at Ghan House. From start to finish the care and attention provided by Paul and his team was truly exceptional. Nothing was too much trouble, as the date got nearer I had lots of questions which were always dealt with so promptly and efficiently. Before the event itself, Sarah went through the running of the day meaning we were both totally relaxed and knew our guests and ourselves would enjoy every minute, which we did. We had a humanist ceremony downstairs and our reception upstairs. The food was fantastic, everyone was so impressed. Ghan House has so much character, lovely grounds for photos, unique accommodation, all perfectly located in beautiful Carlingford. It is ... Read more

We got married in the Ghan House August 2017. From the word go, all the staff were incredibly helpful and accommodating. The food was absolutely superb! The weather was warm enough for us to be able to have drinks in the garden and we also got some of the wedding photos taken on the grounds of the house. Our ceremony was held in the house and everything went very smoothly. We would highly recommend the Ghan House, you couldn't ask for a better team of people or venue!

My husband and I got married in Ghan House on 2 November 2017 and booked exclusive use of the house for the day. We had a humanist ceremony in the downstairs drawing room and our meal in the upstairs drawing room. In between, the guests were free to move between outside, the beautiful bar area and the relaxing front lounge. Within 10 mins of being in Ghan House, we knew it was the ideal location for the personal and intimate wedding we had in mind. The house itself has so much character and just wraps its arms around you as you enter. Each bedroom is unique and decorated with original period furniture. The rooms are spotless and on entering, you ... Read more

We had such a beautiful wedding in Ghan House. I'm so happy that we picked it as our venue. All the staff were wonderful and so helpful throughout the planning process. Everything was taken care of on the day and nothing was a problem. The food was excellent and many guests remarked about how good it was. The venue is just stunning. Our wedding luckly was outside as we got a lovely day. It was just perfect. I would highly recommend Ghan House especially if you want an intimate venue.

After twenty years together we finally decided to get married, we didn’t want a big bash but a small intimate party with family only, for our civil ceremony. Then lots of friends for music, dancing, chat and a party later on in the evening. We booked the entire house which made everything super special for us. Paul and his team were super attentive, flexible and innovative in the planning and execution, Ghan House was spectacular, beautifully lit with fresh seasonal flowers everywhere, a real fire in the ceremony room and lots of space for everyone. The bridal suite is amazing, had hair and makeup done there with a glass of bubbly. I was a nervous nelly but Paul made sure ... Read more

We are so happy that we chose Ghan House for our wedding. It is a beautiful venue for a big, intimate family party and we truly had the most amazing day. Paul’s help, guidance and patience during the planning process was wonderful. He and all his staff made it so easy and stress-free. Every member of the staff was so helpful on our big day. Thank you so much. All of our guests have been raving about the amazing food and warm atmosphere, a lot of people said that it was some the best food they've ever had at a wedding and we would have to agree. We would wholeheartedly recommend Ghan House.

Ghan House........simply amazing!!!!! Having celebrated a friends wedding in April 2011 in the wonderful Ghan House, we knew without doubt we would have our wedding celebrations there. Nowhere else was even considered! This is one very special place with some very special people. From the time we booked our wedding date, the attention, help and kindness we received from the staff of Ghan House, was incredible. They bent over backwards to help us organise our wedding day and nothing, absolutely nothing, we asked for was a problem. From the beautiful picturesque surroundings, the ambience, the amazing food, the courteous and ever attentive staff, the actual house itself, we couldn't recommend Ghan House highly enough.
