With almost 1000 years of war and peace behind it, Carrickfergus is a ‘must see’ destination with some of the finest Norman architecture in Europe, as exemplified by its indomitable castle.LeisureCarrickfergus

Carrickfergus also has a strong ecclesiastical heritage. St. Nicholas’s Church was established on its present site in 1182 and its architecture and contents reflect 900 years of social history. 

You can take walking tours of Carrickfergus and its environs, taking in the walls and other high points of the town in the summer. 

Carrickfergus also offers an impressive and ever changing choice of activities for its citizens and visitors and the Borough is a lively centre for recreation, sport and the arts all year round.
