Dobbins Inn Hotel
A 13th Century family run Inn situated in the heart of Carrickfergus town centre. Dobbins is one of Ireland’s oldest pubs steeped in history and oozing character, offering a great atmosphere, real coal burning fire, "craic", quality service and top class food. With a central location (including ample street parking) there is much to see and do on the hotel doorstep. The famous Castle and St Nicholas Church are within a five minute stroll of the hotel, whilst the recently reopened Gobbins Coastal Path is just a 10 minute drive away. The newly opened Railway Museum at Whitehead is also only 10 minutes drive away. Golfing and angling which are popular activities in the borough, can be arranged at various locations by enquiring at reception. Dobbins Inn is also a perfect base to explore the many unique attractions around the North Coast of Northern Ireland. We are located just a two minute walk from Carrickfergus Railway Station which offers a frequent train service to Belfast City Centre. All bedrooms are en suite complete with TV, telephone, complimentary WI-FI and tea/coffee making facilities. It has its own public bar with regular entertainment. Our recently refurbished Landings restaurant seats up to 70 people. It is the perfect venue for small weddings, family get togethers or just to dine in a beautiful atmosphere. Dobbins is said to be home to the ghost of Elizabeth Dobyn (now known as "Maud"). She wanders the hotel in search of her fallen lover, many a tale can be told about her goings on around the hotel!
