Overall Guide : Spent a lot of time there as a child & still love to visit friendly people & beautiful beaches to visit & if you go in land there is some fantastic scenery . The Carrickfergus castle & the Marina is... more all so worth a visit. Easy to get to Belfast or Port Rush from here.
Not to be missed the Castle , marina
Overall rating 9
