"Just wanted to say a big thank you from myself and the team here in Diageo Customer Service.

I would thoroughly recommend Ghan House as a brilliant place to take a team to do some work where they can get away from the office and focus on a particular aspect of work. We completed all the work we needed to do and also thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Stephane’s award winning cuisine was out of this world, the whole Ghan House team provided excellent service and the rooms were a delight!!

Please pass on our sincere thanks to all at Ghan House."

Yvonne McKillop, Customer Service Manager, Diageo Ireland.

~ Free Wireless broadband  ~ All meeting rooms daylight ~

~ Private dining ~ Fully licensed with extensive wine list ~

We have walled private grounds ideal for teambuilding in addition to a very popular Cookery School.

Carlingford Lough is a stones throw from our gardens and the medieval town of Carlingford just a tree length away. We work closely with the adventure centre & yacht sailing centre bringing together a wealth of variety & experience ~ on our doorstep.


“If you have a group corporate meeting I would suggest Carlingford as a destination town/village (just an hour from both Dublin & Belfast airports) and in particular Ghan House.

We came to Ghan House in Carlingford for our 1st Annual Peer Group agricultural meeting for 20 innovative farmers from Denmark, Ireland, Finland, Canada, Australia and USA.

 This is an amazing venue for a meeting - the drawing room easily seats 30+, it is classically decorated with a big fire place, floor to ceiling windows that look out over Carlingford Lough to the Mountains of Mourne.

 Ghan House is very comfortable makes you feel you are at home and hence makes a perfect networking venue for the group to get to know one another.

 We stayed in the beautifully decorated bedrooms - with a classical look. It really brings you back to feel like you are in an old estate, it's like the series Downton Abbey!

The ballroom was used for dining which allowed us to take a break for lunch, but not waste any time during the meeting. The service was flawless.

The morning breakfast has options of a hot breakfast like eggs, fish, meats and cold options like cereal and fruits.

We had coffee/tea service on each of our breaks that allowed people to get up and move around and network. And options for cold lunch - soup/salads - or a hot lunch with meat, veggies and potatoes. The food was amazing.

 We were at Ghan House all week – so we also got out and ate at the Bay Tree and PJ O’Hare’s Both locations were just a minute walk – we had great food and they were very accommodating for our large group and even made a special menu for guests who had eating restrictions.

I would recommend both of these restaurants and of course Ghan House! 

 I could not have asked for better. Great staff, great management and the owner Paul really makes you feel right at home. I would recommend Ghan House for anyone who wants to visit Carlingford.

All the people I met that lived and worked in Carlingford helped me find what I was looking for, shared the history of the community and really made me feel welcome.

Paul, Sarah or Sean can help with logistics – their local knowledge and ‘can do’ attitude – they can help with shuttles, bus schedules or whatever else you may need.

We can't wait to go back to Carlingford and especially Ghan House in the future.”
