New Year's Eve in Carrickfergus in 2013/ 2013 - the oldest town in County Armagh

Locally and colloquially known as Carrick, the town of Carrickfergus, with a population of almost 28,000 inhabitants, is the oldest town in County Antrim and one of the oldest in settlements in Northern Ireland. Lying on the north shore of Belfast Lough and only 18 km from Belfast, the place is bound to offer an unforgettable New Year's Eve in Carrickfergus in 2012/ 2013.

Subject of the classic Irish folk song beginning with the words 'I wish I was in Carrickfergus' and home town of a bard of English literature - Jonathan Swift, who even wrote his Tale of a Tub here - Carrickfergus is the place where everyone wants to return. The superb coast line with a diversity of wildlife, the imposing 12th century Norman Castle overshadowing the ancient harbor, the vibrant new Marina, or the historic centre enclosed within 16th century walls and complemented by shops, cafes and restaurants are only a few of the attractions of the area. All in all, the New Year's Eve in Carrickfergus in 2012/ 2013 can be a one-off experience for all willing to give it a try.
