Carrickfergus


Norman castle by the harbor

  • Due to the distance, the best option to get to the castle is by car, with parking very close to it.


  • However, you can catch a train from Lanyon Place Station to Carrickfergus, the town where the castle is located. The journey will take about 30 minutes, but you will have to walk about 8 minutes to get to the castle from the destination station.


  • This Norman castle sits on the banks of the Belfast Lough, at the mouth of the River Lagan.


  • It was built by Juan de Courcy in 1177 to serve as his headquarters, after having conquered the eastern part of Ulster.


  • During the 16th and 17th centuries improvements were made to accommodate artillery, but they did not prevent it from being attacked and captured on many occasions.


  • In 1797 it became a prison and was defended during the Napoleonic Wars.


  • During the First World War it was used as a weapons store, and during the Second as a refuge from aerial assaults.


  • This castle and its long history are a very interesting visit to make in Belfast because, although it is a bit far from the center, it is worth spending some time and getting to know it.

Victoria Park


Beautiful park to walk and play sports

  • There are toilets on the premises but they cost £ 0.20 to use.


  • If you opt for public transport (bus), you can get there using line 94.


  • If you opt for the car, there are parking lots nearby.


  • Victoria Park contains soccer fields, bowling alley, swimming pool, and BMX and cycling track.


  • In 1854 the idea of creating a public park in the area was suggested, but the swampy terrain inaccessible to the public complicated the plans.


  • After many meetings and studies, the project saw the light and the park was inaugurated in 1906.


  • The park has a lake with a multitude of aquatic birds, such as swans, geese, ducks and herons, as well as migratory birds.


  • However, the existence of these birds poses a danger to the planes that fly so close, so the authorities recommend not feeding them.


  • This beautiful park is a perfect option to rest and enjoy a family picnic, a highly recommended plan if you have several days in the city.

  • It was raised as a parish church for the growing Catholic population after the famine.


  • The cathedral is the design of Father Jeremiah Ryan McAuley, who was an architect before he was a priest.
