“Lovely apartment in historic Carrickfergus”
Reviewed July 6, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We stayed three nights (two adults and two teenage daughters) and were delighted with this apartment. Quiet location by the marina, but just a short walk to Carrickfergus Castle and the historic town centre. We were travelling without a car, but had no problems using the apartment as a base to explore Belfast and Co. Antrim; Carrickfergus station is a ten-minute walk, with a frequent and reliable train service. A well-equipped kitchen and a nearby Sainsbury's means you can cook in the apartment, but there are also plenty of places to eat out. Friendly and welcoming owners. We thought this apartment was great value for money.

“Lovely place to stay”
Reviewed July 3, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We had a warm welcome on our arrival, and everything was there for the start of our holiday. The apartment was clean and nicely appointed. There are plenty of restaurants and supermarkets nearby. The harbour area and castle are great for walking round. Belfast and the North Antrim coast are easy to get to. We had a lovely stay.

“Great holiday house.”
Reviewed April 15, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Very warm welcome on arrival. The house contained everything we required for a comfortable stay with a good selection of restaurants within easy walking distance. Carrickfergus is a great base from which to explore Northern Ireland.

“Beautiful and Comfortable Apartment and Great Location”

This apartment is very lovely and comfortable! Lorna made sure to be waiting for me in the apartment as i arrived in town and made sure I was comfortable and had everything i needed. She even had the kettle boiling and wonderful cakes for my arrival, which was very thoughtful! The apartment is very clean and well kept and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. I even cooked! It has a wonderful view of the harbor and a comfortable sitting spot right out front to enjoy the beautiful sunsets. Carrickfergus castle is just a couple minutes walk as is the Scotch quarter, which had wonderful shops and cafes. Lorna was easily available should I have needed anything, which was a comfort, and was very quick to respond during the booking process and afterward when I had questions about the area. Thank you so much Lorna, I loved your apartment and can't say enough great things about it and I hope to return someday soon! Thank you.
