Dominated by its magnificently preserved Norman Castle, Carrickfergus lies 10 miles north of Belfast on the picturesque Antrim coast and its one of the first stops on the Causeway Costal Route. Amongst the restaurants, shops and coffee shops in the town you will find cultural and heritage gems that you just won’t see anywhere else.

A wealth of history awaits you as tours can be arranged free of charge for Carrickfergus Museum, Flame-The Gasworks Museum of Ireland, The Andrew Jackson Cottage and US Rangers Centre and St Nicholas Church. At over 800 years old Carrickfergus Castle is a must see attraction and offers excellent groups rates. So much to see, so much to do and all the time in the world. We look forward to welcoming you soon!
