Carrickfergus

Situated between Larne and Belfast, the town of Carrickfergus has a truly diverse mixture of the historic, scenic and modern; and is a frequent winner of 'Britain in Bloom' competitions. The striking Norman Castle has stood since 1180 dramatically perched on the edge of the Lough, and now visitors flock to see its historic charm inside and out. Follow the 'timeless trail', from the fascinating Andrew Jackson Centre at Boneybefore, past the Castle and historic harbour haven; then through the elegant newWaterfront area, to Castle Rocklands, where seals bask offshore. To complement your trip, pop into the bustling town and visit Knight Ride, where a mono-rail car takes you on an exhilarating journey through 1000 years of history.
