A very characteristic Norman castle. Whether it is a train going north or a day trip to the Giant's Causeway, it will pass by this building close to the coastline. The size of the entire castle is not small, and it is better preserved than the castle near the Giant's Causeway. The protruding part against the sea makes it a great sea view.
Not far from Belfast is the small town of Carrickfergus, a beautiful place by the sea. Carrickfergus Castle is right by the sea and there is a port next to it. The castle is really magnificent, you can climb up to overlook the sea, and the view of the whole city from the top of the castle is amazing.
We came on a day trip on the Giant's Causeway bus, and we came to this castle at the first stop. It is said to be the oldest castle in Northern Ireland. It is built on the water bank, which is enough to show its geographical advantages. Perhaps it is because the age is really old enough, and the scene can be seen to experience the devastation of war.
Due to the lack of time on the day and the fact that we are really tired of seeing European castles, there is no need to spend additional entrance fees to visit inside. It is enough to take pictures outside the castle!
Carrickfergus Castle is the first sight to go to the Giant’s Causeway, a famous attraction in Belfast. The castle has a very long history. It is built on the coastline. About 1/3 of the place has been damaged, but it cannot be concealed. It was majestic and important in the past. If you are interested, you can visit it.
