Providing a safe and secure haven right in the heart of historic Carrrickfergus. Nearby Carrickfergus Castle, built in the 12th Century by the Normans and augmented by countless generations, is a major visitor attraction.

Carrickfergus is also home to Flame Gasworks, Ireland's last surviving coal gasworks, one of three left in the British Isles.

Carrickfergus Museum & Civic Centre is another gem. Housing materials from the Council's own civic collection together with related materials on loan from private and national collections alongside several 'hands on' interactive facilities gives a fun as well as informative angle to the displays.

A short 5 minute drive will take you to visit the Andrew Jackson Cottage and US Rangers Centre at Boneybefore. The cottage highlights Carrickfergus' strong American and Ulster-Scots connections as well as telling the story of Andrew Jackson, 7th president of the USA, whose parents emigrated to America from Carrickfergus in 1765.

St Nicholas' Church, built in 1182, with the famed crooked aisle is also worth a visit.

Reviews for Carrickfergus Marina
Excellent Marina, 2015-11-17
Captain: , Conwy, N. Wales (13848)

Carrickfergus is a good quality, large marina with very good facilities and friendly staff. They provide an informative and professional welcome pack.

The pub on the marina waterfront was fine with a large outside eating and drinking area and served food which looked ok (though we didn't eat there).

The town is quite limited, we were looking around for somewhere to eat but there's not much to it and we didn't see anywhere interesting.

If you've got some spare time and are interested in Irish and Scottish history then the castle is well worth a visit.

A Marina at the heart of nautical and military history in Ireland, 2013-12-07
Captain: , Carrickfergus (11)

Providing a safe and secure haven right in the heart of historic Carrickfergus close to the intact Norman Castle. Hotels, pubs, shops, supermarkets, post offices all within walking distance of the Marina. Visited and occupied over the years by Danes, Normans, Elizabethans, William of Orange, the French Navy and Army, Paul Jones founder of the American Continental Navy and most recently the birth place of the WW2 version of the US Army Rangers. A 5 Gold Anchor standard Marina, it is currently being dredged to maintain access and berths at all tide states. Carrickfergus Sailing Club nearby welcomes all visitors.
