this place is perfect for kids. they can explore the castle til their hearts content, then they can go off to the beach which is right beside it. the ice cream man will be around somewhere on a warm day and even if the wind is high, what better place to be on a windswept beach with a castle such as Carrickfergus to hide within?!Read moreLess
"Carrickfergus Castle was built in 1177 and has many years…"
Carrickfergus Castle was built in 1177 and has many years of history to look around. This was the first time we have taken the children (2yrs and a 12mth old) and they really enjoyed it. Plenty of space to run around and lots of nooks and crannies to explore.
We had our 12 mth old in a back carrier and it was much better as there is limited access for pushchairs/ wheelchairs. There is a small shop and cafe but as we didn't eat there I can't rate the food.
