Took a short stroll around the marina, lovely and peaceful even in winter with lots of different boats to look at and the castle in the background provides some great photo opportunities. Lots of places to eat and shop are around the marina and lots of benches to sit and take in the sea views.

We often go for walks around the Marina and it is a really lovely spot. There are various decent eating places where you can get a warming hot drink and a nice meal. I highly recommend a visit as you never feel rushed and it's a relaxing place.

Lovely beautiful harbour sit and spend some time watching the world go by. Few pubs around it and off course the castle too. Lovely way to spend a hour or so watching the boats sailing around.

A quaint little marina that gives you a chance to take in this delightful setting. There is a large car park next to the marina and Carrickfergus Castle.
