Carrickfergus is situated on the North Shore of Belfast Lough.
Opened in 1985 it provides good shelter with its stone breakwaters. The staff are extremely helpful and the facility block provides toilets, showers and laundry facilities
Carrick Marine Projects are on hand to help with any repairs that you may have to make and they also operate the boat hoist which is situated in the harbour as is the fuel berth. Rory, Wendy or Norman can usually be found around the boatyard or in their office near the fuel birth in the Harbour.
The marina and harbour are the centrepiece of the rapidly expanding waterfront area. Restaurants, bars, a multi screen cinema and co-op superstore are all with in very easy walking distance as is Carrickfergus Sailing Club where visitors will be made welcome.
