Carrickfergus Castle was built by John de Courcy after the Norman invasion of Ireland in the 12th century. The walls are a meter thick with several impressive defense features like arrow slits, twin portcullises and a "murder hole" for raining boiling tar down on stranded enemies below. The center of the castle is the Keep, in which exhibitions divulge intimate details of medieval life. A room is laid out as a banqueting hall, where you can come and party as a private group. On the top floor there's an enormous chessboard and a chest of medieval clothes you can even try on while you play. A cafe and gift shop complete the tour.
there was lots of things i disliked about the CASTLE LIKE IT LOOKED TO MODERN BECAUSE IT WAS ALL WIGHT WASHED AND I THINK IT WOULD HAVE BEEN MORE REALISTIC IF THE STAIRS GOING FROM ONE LEVEL TO ANOTHER WERENT SO MODERN LOOKING BECAUSE IT LOOKS GREAT FROM THE OUTSIDE BUT THE INSIDE WAS A LET DOWN AS EVERYTHING WAS SO PLAIN AND MODERN
We went to Ireland for our honeymoon (from the US). I know people from there are like, "oh, another castle" but to us this one was the most memorable. We have terrific pictures of it and everyone there was most kind. I wish I could live there.
