Marine Highway, Carrickfergus, Antrim, BT38 7BG

For more than 800 years, Carrickfergus Castle has been an imposing monument on the Northern Ireland landscape whether it is approached by land, sea or air. Originally built in 1177 by John de Courcy it has been altered throughout the centuries and was in use as a garrisoned property until as late as 1928. It is probably the best-preserved medieval and Norman castle in Ireland. The castle now houses historical and other displays as well as cannons from the 17th century to the 19th century.
