Located in Carrickfergus, Altahammond House offers accommodations with free WiFi and flat-screen TV, as well as a garden and a shared lounge. It felt like home. The welcome we received from Heather and Tom was by far the most genuine and heartfelt of all of the B&B’s we stayed at in the three weeks we travelled through Ireland. We were encouraged to consider the house as our home during our stay and were treated to a beautifully laid fire and offers of coffee tea and whatever else we needed on arrival. The room we had was the ‘Allan’ (I believe was the name on the door), newly finished with a beautiful en-suite, large enough to move around with two open suitcases and very very comfortable. Breakfast was fabulous and HUGE- if you stay here (and you should) plan on leaving well stuffed and not needing lunch. Beautiful antiques are everywhere, from the tableware to the decor and Heathers enthusiasm for the house and her guests is infectious. We were given great recommendations for dinner and activities and our hosts even offered to drive us to our meal and pick us up! We declined this kind offer as we imposed on them enough! (I loved just sitting in the kitchen and talking to Tom and Heather) Honestly the kindest people, we had the most amazing stay- I wish we could have stayed longer! Had this been our first stop in Ireland instead of our last we may not have seen the rest of the country! A car is advisable- as you are about 20-25 minutes drive from Belfast but it’s a great location to tour sites nearby. Everything is an easy drive. Quiet, peaceful and beautiful at night when you need to rest up for the next day!

Featuring a shared lounge and barbecue facilities, Shamrock Shore provides accommodations in Carrickfergus with free WiFi and sea views. The host is a very nice man who told us a little bit about him and gave us some tips like where to eat or what to do. He left a lot of food for our breakfast and I would say also for dinner! We stayed just one night there but we could have stayed longer because the place is amazing. It's in a perfect location, in front of the sea and next to the castle. It has everything you need! We fell in love with the big window in the living room, where you actually can have breakfast in front of the sea. I would always recommend this place.

Located in Carrickfergus in the County Antrim region and Carrickfergus Marina reachable within 2.2 miles, Burleigh House 36 Middle Road provides accommodations with free WiFi, BBQ facilities, free... The location was rural, up a dirt road, to a quiet and lovely spot. The view was beautiful. It was great having a washing machine to clean our clothes, as we were on a long trip.
Beautiful sparkling clean town. The walk along the sea is great. The playground opposite the castle is brilliant for young children. The castle itself is unbelievable. The exhibition is excellent and very educational.
Easy access to Belfast by train, did the Gobbins coastal hike, which was amazing about a 15 min drive. Great neighborhood with restaurants, bars and coffee shop. And the boardwalk offered great walking and the castle was beautiful with great history!!!
Carrickfergus is a well positioned town on the Country Antrim coast. It has a good selection of tasty restaurants and is well positioned for exploring the area. There are plenty of banks, a local taxi service, and grocery stores to obtain provisions like water and snacks. The castle is well worth the visit. And if a person needed direction or other assistance, the locals are friendly and helpful. Last but not least is the beautiful view of the ocean where you can take a run, a relaxing walk, or simply enjoy the view. The lower town is fairly flat and easy to get around but as this is by the coast, the train station and other areas are up the hill.
Carrickfergus Castle is a "Must See". It is the finest example of a Norman Castle in Ireland that dates from approximately 1170 AD. There is also much of the original Town Wall that dates from the same period.
The people were so friendly, and respectful. The town is steeped in history, Carrick is a gem, so much to offer. The Victorian train station was like stepping back in time, steam trains, castle, beach, rolling countryside, fantastic restaurants, museum, shopping, fabulous place.

Melinda is the sweetest, most helpful and friendly hostess we've come across on our 4 week road trip around Ireland. We stayed in the upstairs twin and double rooms and because the downstairs fully equipped apartment was unoccupied for the length of our stay, she let us have it for free. Want a jug of milk? No problem, and she brought homebaked cookies. Breakfast was very good, cooked as we sat down. The main treat, however, was her homemade jam. The highlight of our trip! Thank you for a wonderful stay.

This is the perfect home from home house in an excellent location (stone throw away from everything). The owners have made this home so comfortable and genuinely thought of everything that might be needed including kitchen and bathroom products. Had such a lovely time hear and will definitely be back when we visit Carrickfergus. Thanks so much guys for the really thoughtful welcome including milk, bread, cheese and esp a bottle of wine!!! - class touch x

Randal was exceptionally welcoming, showed me how everything worked and left essentials to get us started. Wonderful view of sea through a massive window. Kindly agreed to a very late checkout while we lost track of time gazing out to sea. Everything you need to have a quiet trip away in Carrickfergus. Facilities were actually superior to places charging alot more.

large old farmhouse. Newly converted to a B&B and the bedrooms/bathrooms are more like a hotel. Rooms are spacious and bathrooms brand new and state of the art! Great views of the sound. Mine host is a butcher.....and breakfast reflects that. Most welcoming and generous hostess.

The decor was so different, felt like you were in a city in middle east. The beds the best I've ever slept in. The towels soft and the toiletries beautiful. Like a 5star hotel! Also very central, In middle of town and handy to the marina.
If your looking for an alternative to staying in a hotel and you need more room than a B&B can offer then this lovely 2 bed 2 bathroom cottage is for you. Bob, the owner is also very friendly and willing to help!
