( Irish: Carraig Ḟearġais )

Situated on the shores of Belfast Lough, Carrickfergus is dominated by the iconic Norman citadel which has stood guard to the stunning Antrim coastline since the 12th century. Despite being one of the island of Ireland’s oldest settlements, the town of Carrickfergus boasts a blend of modernity and convenience with an idyllic location not far from Belfast itself.

Sheils Carrickfergus

Located just beyond the town towards Kilroot.

The Local Board and Christine Harper in particular have forged close connections with the local community, which has led to many “extra” facilities being available, such as the summerhouse and raised beds where vegetables and fruit are grown. Outings are arranged and many residents have been involved in a knitting project for needy in Malawi.
