Carrickfergus Castle, County Antrim,

Northern Ireland

Carrickfergus Castle is a Norman castle situated on the shores of Belfast Lough, in the harbour town of Carrickfergus. It was built in 1177 and has survived numerous battles from that time on, including the Nine Years War and the Napoleonic Wars. During the 19th century it was used as an armoury, a garrison during World War I, and an air raid shelter in World War II. Considering it's colourful past, it is a testament to its structure that today it is considered among the best preserved medieval castles in Ireland. It is currently looked after by the Environment and Heritage Service and is open to the public.
