A very old Norman Church easily identifiable in Carrickfergus. Sadly, it was closed and seemingly only open on Tuesday. I'm not sure why...security? Lack of volunteers? ... A real shame as we were led to believe that it's beautiful inside with some fine stained glass....More

The church itself was closed but it is possible to visit the burial grounds around the church. There are lots of interesting gravestones, vaults and some spectacular trees. Well worth visiting.

This place of worship is so well preserved after 800 years that it looks like a movie set. Some really interesting features such as only one of three St Nicholas windows in Ireland. And only one of two bent aisles in Northern Ireland.

The layout of this church is so interesting. It was fascinating reading all the tomb placards and finding a man who was buried by PA founder, William Penn's father. The large window was mesmerizing.
