Travel Tips for Carrickfergus

~ Carrickfergus ~

Carrickfergus was a thriving town when Belfast was a sandbank. When Henry II was king of England, and the Norman, John de Courcy had overthrown the kings of the north of Ireland and established his rule from Carlingford Lough up the east coast as far as Fair Head. In 1180 he built a massive keep to guard the approach to Belfast Lough at Carrickfergus the first real Irish castle. In the early 17th century, Carrickfergus was the only place in the north where English was spoken; Gaelic was still the language of Ulster.
I spent some time with a friend who's family owned an excellent 18 hole golf course in Carrickfergus situated on the east coast of Northern Ireland. It is a medieval town about 9 miles north of Belfast on the edge of Belfast Lough and has about 35,000 inhabitants, around 16 pubs, 4 hotels, 9 clubs, a tourist monorail history ride called 'The Knight Ride', and a big castle. It has been a number of years now since I was here, but here are some of the places I visited.

Finn McCool

A legend tells how Finn McCool, Ulster warrior and commander of the king of Ireland's armies, fell in love with a female giant on the island of Staffa off the Scottish coast. Desperate to claim his love, Finn built these giant stepping stones to bring her across the sea to Ulster.

IRELAND the Emerald Isle

by Carnation

If your into outdoor activities then Northern Ireland is the place to be. Try your climbing skills in the Mourne's or horseriding along the many beaches. Maybe a more leisurely ride through the beautiful lush green countryside or forests. Why not get the bike out and peddle along the coast taking in the wonderful scenery. Ireland, known as the Emerald Isle, has one of the most spectacular coastlines in Europe, enchanting lakes and miles of well kept rivers. It is because of this that a lot of activity based holidays are water-based ie sailing on the British Isles biggest lake "Lough Neagh" or cruising on the 50 mile long "Lough Erne".
