****CLOSURE OF CARRICKFERGUS CASTLE ****
Given the rapidly evolving situation regarding COVID-19, the Department for Communities has decided to close Carrickfergus Castle to the public from close of business on Tuesday 17 March and to cancel all events planned at any of the 190 State Care Monuments. Our first priority is the health and wellbeing of all of our visitors and staff, and we hope that people will understand why we have taken this unprecedented step.
Whilst Carrickfergus Castle is temporarily closed, and events will not take place, our large number of free to enter sites will remain open to visitors. Many of these sites have large open spaces in which visitors can maintain social distancing and they are often located in quieter spots away from crowds. We hope that people will continue to use these sites, in line with public health guidance.
We will also continue to carry out essential maintenance and preservation works to protect the State Care Monuments.
We look forward to announcing when we will be able to welcome visitors back to Carrickfergus Castle, and would like to thank the public for their support and patience.
