    Carrickfergus Castle Info

    Carrickfergus Castle is preserved as an ancient monument on the shore of Belfast Lough. John de Courcy, the Anglo-Norman baron who conquered much of Ulster, started building the castle in the 1170s and it remained in use 1928, seeing action until World War II. It was built and re-built three times, and still stands today.

    Carrickfergus Castle is a self-guiding attraction with information boards situated around the Castle to allow you to spend as much or as little time as you wish. The banqueting hall has been fully restored and there are many exhibits to show what life was like in medieval times. A visitor centre has maps an other items for sale, also guided tours of the Castle can be arranged.
