Belfast Airport Taxis seem to be saying £31 so worth doing if 2 or more of you as it would be much quicker.

The easiest way by public transport would be to get the Airport Express bus to the Europa bus station and then get the train from Great victoria street train station (these two are side by side under one roof in the same building) to Carrickfergus.

Although there is a bus from Belfast to Carrickfergus, it doesn't leave from the Europa bus station so it gets complicated so I would stick to a taxi if budget isn't an issue.

Note that there are 2 buses per day from Antrim to Carrickfergus, so depending on what time your arrive, your best option might be to get a taxi from the airport to Antrim Buscentre. The timetable is here:
