Ghan House is just an hours drive from Dublin and Belfast with views of Carlingford Lough , Slieve Foy mountain & The mountains of Mourne.
The 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!
We have beautiful views of Slieve Foy, the Mountains of Mourne & Carlingford Lough - from the gardens, all the public rooms & bedrooms. In addition we have 8 ft high stone walls enclosing the gardens, adding to the privacy & uniqueness.
For weddings up to 54 guests where the unique atmosphere of a Georgian House lends itself to a very sociable day; we offer:
Our head chef Stephane was awarded 2 AA Rosettes for the restaurant 2011 - 2022. In addition Ghan House was the National winners of the AA 'Guest Accommodation of the Year 2020'.
Food is important to us as well as you!
The bedrooms have been selected by John & Sally McKenna's Bridgestone Guide - 'Best 100 Places to stay in Ireland' for 22 continuous years from 1998 to 2022.
The Drawing Room holds up to 54 guests and has a fully tuned grand Piano. There are magnificent views of Slieve Foy, Carlingford Lough, the mountains of Mourne and the castellated walled gardens of Ghan House .
The Ghan House alternative to the big hotel function room makes for a very intimate, sociable wedding!
Eco economy - All of the bedrooms at Ghan House - their heating & hotwater are powered by 2 x air source heat pumps. The water from the roof of the main house feed into the pond.
Kitchen waste is utilised to make compost, plastic, paper, card & glass are all recycyled as is kitchen oil. The gas used for cooking & in the laundry for drying is BioLPG - which is 100% renewable - we pay more for it, but we think it's worth it! There are many other green commitments we are implementing - see https://www.ghanhouse.com/clean-energy-initiative/ for further details.

What people are saying!
Out of them all, Paul and all at Ghan House seemed to anticipate our desired wishes, and suggest helpfully some thing or way we might undertake our dream …
From Paul, owner of Ghan House who was always so open and considerate, and manager Sarah, who was extraordinary in her grasp of details, estimating with unerring accuracy what we would need, and budgeting advice with obvious experience of people's menu choices at times of the year and all the staff for their professionalism, we are so grateful.
Our special day was indeed special and so much more! The food served to our guests was without fail exceptional. Everyone was very happy.
The surroundings and attention to detail, and presentation of Ghan House was superb.
Our Harpist, Mongolian Morin Khuur musician (who were inspired to play duets together they enjoyed their surroundings so much), DJ, photographer and Videographer were also very happy to be involved with our special day at Ghan House.
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you so much for helping in making so special our special day. Best wishes for the future, Love Chimge and Gerry xx

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 …
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 having a great day enjoying the celebration either walking in the lovely walled gardens/grounds or lounging and relaxing in the beautiful venue itself.. The weather only added to the picture perfect memory.
Definitely a beautiful wedding venue, highly recommended.
