Beautiful cosy flat with sea view, over Belfast Lough.
Very friendly and helpful owner.
Close to railway stations, and town centre.

“Beautiful, welcoming and relaxing”
Reviewed 16 March 2017 for a stay in July 2016

Very well equipped and spacious. As always, so much better than a hotel for catching up with old friends.
Apartment is well looked after. The location is quiet and relaxing but has good local amenities and is not far from anywhere in NI.
We'll be going back soon for another week and very much looking forward to it.

“A wonderful place to stay”
Reviewed 16 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

The owner Maxine is a typical warm hearted, helpful and friendly Irish lady.The apartment is stylish but comfortable. Just sitting on the sofa drinking wine and looking over the water is so relaxing. Good rail links to Belfast so no need to drive. I have no hesitation in recommending this apartment to others. The visitor book was full of very complimentary messages with many from the US.

“A wonderful apartment”
Reviewed 12 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

We have stayed at many holiday rentals and this is one of the best. We were met at the apartment by Maxine who gave us a tour and explained everything. The apartment is warm and welcoming with a lovely uninterrupted view of the sea from the living room window.

Tip: beat the traffic and take the train into Belfast

Thanks Maxine, we hope to return one day

“The perfect place”
Reviewed 16 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

What a gem to find on our return visit to Carrickfergus, Ahoy 3 was the perfect place to stay. On arrival Maxine, the owner, was there to welcome us and give any advice needed. Everything we needed for our stay was available. The apartment was clean, comfortable and fully equipped, and we felt at home immediately. The views over the castle and Belfast Lough were stunning, watching cruise ships come up the lough into Belfast was another bonus. There were plenty of excellent cafes and restaurants a short stroll from the apartment, I would recommend lunch in either The Courtyard Cafe, Take Thyme, Maud's Ice-Cream and coffee which is right next door, or Ownies Bar, who also serve a fantastic evening menu. There are good rail and bus links into Belfast, with a bus stop opposite the apartments. I will definitely use these apartments when I return and will recommend them to all my friends.
