“Excellent base for touring Northern Ireland.”
Reviewed August 29, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

If you are looking for 5 star luxury then find somewhere else to stay. If you would like a really clean and cosy apartment to rest your head after a busy day then read on. The apartment is spread over 2 floors with a spacious living/dining room and kitchen on 1 floor and 2 bedrooms and a bathroom on the other. On arrival we were met by the owner Angie who had left us a really good welcome pack which was a nice surprise. Angie welcomed us in and spent plenty of time with us going through how everything worked in the apartment. We did have a couple of issues whilst staying at essex court but a quick call to Angie and all was sorted. Everything in the apartment was clean and tidy, the bedrooms were lovely and the king size bed in the master provided me with the best night sleep i have had for a long time. The bathroom was spotless and the electric shower was really nice after a couple of long days.
Carrickfergus itself is a lovely place to stay and the apartment is central to everything you could need, good food , local walks, shopping and local transport are all on the doorstep.
Overall and lovely place to rest your head and the owner Angie has no problems going out of her way to solve any issues you may have.
Lokking forward to a return visit in the future.

“Flying visit to Carrickfergus”
Reviewed March 29, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Perfect central town location, yet quiet. Comfy, clean, tidy, spacious and warm apartment. Well equipped kitchen. A must for my teens was the availability of Wi-Fi. Bathroom with a shower over the bath. We stayed for 5 days here, whilst on a welfare visit to older relatives. Close to some very tasty restaurants. Train station a 5 min walk away. A Sainsbury's store is across the road opposite the Castle. And Tesco a little further away. There's a 6 screen cinema near Sainsbury's. Also close by a cafe, pizza, McDonald's & a KFC. A children's play park is a short walk along the seafront.
As I have family in Carrickfergus, we will definitely come back here to stay when we visit. Couldn't hope for a better holiday rental.

Our 4 th visit to Essex Court . Short stay this time but just perfect for us . I am known for my complaining and high standards so the absence of any negatives is high praise indeed. Please read other reviews for this property it not just my opinion that counts.

The perfect way to stay in Carrick Fergus. Angie and her husband are wonderful. We were walking from the train station when we arrived and couldn't find our way to the apartment so Angie came and got us. The little care package of cheese, milk, bread and butter was wonderful. Their tips on places to eat and visit were spot on. The apartment is very convenient to shopping and the train station (once we figured out where we were). We will definitely look Angie up when we return to Carrick Fergus

“Fabulous Apartment”

Just returned from a fantastic stay at the Apartment, first of all we were met by the lovely Angie bearing gifts of beautiful local food products, a most lovely welcome indeed. The apartment is large, welcoming and spotlessly clean,there was only two of us staying but it's large enough to accommodate a family comfortably, it has all the facilities you need including a fully footed kitchen including a washer, dryer, Ito and ironing board, everything has been thought of by Angie. The location is fantastic very close to the castle, sea front and local shops. The train station is minutes away enabling you to travel into Belfast or Dublin which is approximately 2 hours away by train. Truly enjoyed it all and will definitely return here. Thank you Angie.
