On 20th April 2012 we had a surprise 50th Birthday Party for my wee Brother. I only stayed in Dobbins Inn Hotel overnight, but on arrival the Lady on reception was very helpful and plesant. We went to our room and we were so surprised to find a very comfortable room we felt that we where at home. As we had arrived very early at Dobbins we went down to the bar for a drink, the Barman was such a lovely person and very friendly, and he was so chatty and funny. In the Hotel we met people from Scotland with their dogs as there was a dog show on Saturday 21st April 2012, also other members off my family stayed at Dobbins Inn Hotel. At the Party the staff could not do enough for us as they made sure that everyone there had everything they needed. I would recommend Dobbins Inn Hotel to anyone as it is very clean, the staff are very friendly and helpful and the food is great. Also the Hotel is very close to all shops and just across the Road is Carrickfergus Castle and you can enjoy a blissful walk along the Harbour wall where Prince William 3rd landed there on his way to the Battle of the Boyne in 1690 so History has also been made there. So if you ever come to Northern Ireland why not come to Carrickfergus and spend a few days in Dobbins Inn Hotel, you would be very welcome here and that is a Promise.

Yes, the room was small. Yes, the only window faced a block wall. BUT, the food was outstanding, the full breakfast was magnificent prepared by a cook that is a treasure, ask about her grandchildren. The pub is extremely friendly with a varied menu and the location is friendly for day trips. We were on vacation traveling Northern Island, U.K., and Irish Republic, we did not spend days in the hotel room as we could do that very well in Daytona Beach or Orlando. This establishment served our purpose extremely well and added a welcome flavor to our experiences.
