Carrickfergus Castle

We are extremely lucky to have a castle in our beautiful town, Carrickfergus. Carrickfergus Castle is a 2 minute walk from Walter’s Place and you can even spot if from your window in a couple of our rooms.

Besieged by the Scots, English, Irish and French at various points throughout its history, it has racked up over 750 years of continuous military occupation until 1928, when it was transferred from the War Department to the Ministry of Finance for preservation as an ancient monument. However its days of action were not over. During World War II, it was used as an air raid shelter.

The castle now houses historical displays as well as cannons from the 17th to the 19th centuries and visitors are encouraged to explore the castle’s large halls and dark corners – there are ramparts, dungeons and even winding staircases with trip steps to deter any invaders.
