We needed someplace North of Belfast and Robbins Inn more than fit the bill. Great old building, quaint rooms and excellent customer service. We caught a bus to Belfast after touring Carrickfergus Castle (a must) and were glad to return.

Good but not outstanding experience. Food and service were very good. Staff were very friendly. Outside of building currently being renovated. Inside somewhat dated and basic. Located right in the middle of Carrickfergus.
