The marina is just outside the castle. We enjoyed the leisurely stroll around the marina and watched the waterfowl bobbing next to the pier.

Very nice place to sit and enjoy the view. With the castle in the forefront, the view on a sunny day is spectacular. Free parking, and easy to access.

Myself and my little family took a lovely stroll to the marina past the castle and along the boardwalk today. It was peaceful and clean. Stunning views of the whole marina. Definitely worth the walk.

Like to be by the water? This is the perfect place to watch the world go by in a picturesque part of Belfast Lough and only about 10 miles from the city centre easily accessible by car, bus or train.

Loved the little marina here today. Weather was okay but nice speaking to some of the fisherman too about the boats and changes over the years. Worth a visit.

Definitely not to be missed if you're out and about in Carrickfergus. You can take a leisurely stroll around, there's plenty to look at and wonderful views.
