Our hosts, Heather and Raymond, were extremely friendly. The room we were allocated was spotless and really big, in fact it could comfortably sleep a family of four (1 double and 2 single beds). Although there were just two of us, the room did not cost us more. Tea, coffee, etc was available in the room, as well as wifi. There is parking outside in the front. The B&B is well situated, close to restaurants and the Castle. A cracker of a breakfast is served in the morning!
Belfast is easily accessible by bus or train from Carrickfergus, and it's not expensive. We dropped our hire car off in Belfast the day before we left Northern Ireland, and returned to Carrickfergus for our last night. A taxi from Carrickfergus to the George Best Airport cost £16 - £1 more than it would have cost the two of us to bus to Belfast, and eliminated all sorts of logistics around getting a bus from town to the airport and of course saved a lot of time.
A highly recommended B&B if you're holidaying in Northern Ireland!
