Northern Ireland's most impressive medieval fortress commands the entrance to Belfast Lough from the rocky promontory of Carrickfergus (Carraig Fhearghais), just 18km northeast of Belfast. The old town centre opposite Carrickfergus Castle has some attractive 18th-century houses and you can still trace a good part of the 17th-century city walls.
