Welcome to Ghan House, in Medieval Carlingford

We’re open! – both for accommodation & evening dining (indoor)for residents.
As we are full most nights with residents, to keep social distancing and for our guests to enjoy their own table for the evening (we do not offer a ‘2nd sitting’) 1 or 2 tables are available each night for non residents for our restaurant – indoors – so best book in advance!
