    About Carrickfergus

    Known locally as ‘Carrick’, Carrickfergus is a large, attractive town in the east of County Antrim, situated 11 miles from Belfast, on the north shore of Belfast Lough. The Irish name of the town is ‘Carraig Fhearghais’, which means ‘rock of Fergus’. The town was immortalised in an Irish folk song of the same name, and following his marriage, one of Prince William’s titles has been ‘Baron Carrickfergus’, a title that was unused since 1883.
