Ghan House

Ghan House is a fully restored 18th Century Georgian House in the Medieval Heritage Town of Carlingford, just an hour from Dublin and Belfast.

Log fires, candlelight and Georgian ambience make us a stunning space for your dream wedding.

The unique aspect of Ghan House is that you can have exclusive use of the whole house & gardens.  If you choose to take Exclusive Use, 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 than just one big function room - more free-range

than all cooped up - you can take a break from the band/DJ and in your own bar, 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!

Alternatively, for smaller weddings, you can hold your Civil Ceremony followed by dinner in your very own private dining room.

  • Beautiful views of Slieve Foy, the Mourne Mountains & Carlingford Lough - from the gardens, all the public rooms & bedrooms.
  • 8 ft high stone walls enclosing the gardens, adding to the privacy & uniqueness.

Most of the weddings in Ghan House are between 10 to 110 with extra evening guests.

We have twelve AA 4* rated bedrooms and have been recommended in the “Best 100 places to stay in Ireland” for 22 continuous years by John McKenna in his Guide to Ireland.

Our head chef has twice been named “Best Chef in Leinster” and the menus reflect the reputation that we have earned over the years.  The restaurant has retained 2 AA Rosettes for 8 years and uses the best local produce as well as herbs & vegetables from their garden. Quality produce with a relaxing ambience makes for a perfect dining experience.

So, if you’re looking for great food and a very special, intimate venue for your wedding, we have the experience, location and ambience to fulfil your dreams.
