Expedia car hire in Carrickfergus comes with No Hidden Fees

Only 20 minutes away by car from Belfast city centre and close by the beautiful coastal scenery and countryside leading to Lough Neagh and Northern Ireland’s famous Causeway Coast, it can pay to keep your discovery options open with a rental car when based in Carrickfergus.

A rental car offers you the best of both worlds. Heading southwest on the main N2, the cultural highlights and history of Belfast become instantly accessible, including the atmospheric birthplace of the Titanic, museums and markets, concert and theatre venues and festivals galore throughout the year. Heading north-west on the same route by car opens up a wonderland of nature off the beaten path.

The Causeway Coast by Car from Carrickfergus

The Giant’s Causeway and Causeway Coast are not just Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, but comprise Northern Ireland's only World Heritage Site.

Contrary to popular belief, there’s a lot more to the Causeway Coast than the legendary basalt columns (or “Giant’s Eyes”), including unique dune landscapes, white chalk cliffs and their black basalt counterparts, which occasionally alternate in stark and unforgettable contrast. The rental car is the perfect way to discover these treasures whilst retaining your freedom to come and go, to eat and roam wherever and whenever you choose.

Sporting Options Multiplied by Car

Take full advantage of the golfing, fishing and surfing possibilities around Carrickfergus by ensuring access to your own transport. By car, you can check out the amazing range of beaches around Larne, where you’ll be free to go diving among wrecks, exploring beautiful caves and even kitesurfing.
