We are delighted to see more work being done to the outside of the building. Our findings have aged the stone front at 1460 with the timber beams above the windows at 1595. 

It is great to learn more about the age and history of the carrickfergus building, the history of Dobbins Inn is being developed and another chapter begins.
It is believed that it is one of the oldest working building in  County Antrim, making Dobbins Inn a must see location for anyone visiting the Causeway coast and surrounding areas.
