Stunning coastline, gorgeous countryside and a thriving, historic town... there's loads to see and do at the Premier Inn Hotel Carrickfergus. In fact with so much to do within a mile of the front door - plus popular business destinations only slightly further away - your first visit is unlikely to be your last. Step back in time at Carrickfergus Castle and Museum, before stepping out to its Marina and smartly refurbished Amphitheatre leisure centre. And, if it's the right time of year, follow the steps at the Annual Irish Dancing Championships. Either way, kick back at our tasty Brewers Fayre restaurant before diving into your incredibly comfy bed. Important info This hotel is situated next to a main road. Bedrooms are insulated to minimise noise. Directions: M2(J2) out of Belfast City, follow M5 North onto A2 towards Carrickfergus along coast road. Follow signs to the Castle/Maritime Area. Turn right at roundabout adjacent to the castle. Hotel situated straight ahead, 9.5 miles from Belfast. Next to the Harbour Brewers Fayre.

Just spent 4 very comfortable nights at this hotel. Our room and all areas were very clean and well kept. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. A good base to explore the Causeway costal route and the Antrim countryside.

The Premier Inn in Carrickfergus is situated facing the marina, with Carrickfergus Castle visible from the restaurant. Parking is free, plentiful and there are cameras in the car park. Our room on the second floor was spacious and bright. There is both a lift and a staircase.

"Ask for a harbour view."
"Maybe stay somewhere else"
"Avoid the rooms near the kitchen!"
"All rooms are on the ground floor and none are facing heavy traffic, so not much to choose really."
"Book early for the cheapest price. Late bookings can be relatively expensive."
