Newest Review: ... train stops are within (or less than) a 10 minute walk of the Castle itself. Entry is quite cheap at £3.00 for adults and half that price for children and concessions.

Carrickfergus is a very picturesque castle, one of the most in Ireland, and is the main feature in the town. Anybody traveling through Carrickfergus will not be able to miss the castle as it is situated on the Shore Road that leads to Larne. Castle is very large and is often features on ...
