Everything about my stay was absolutely first class, the apartment was perfect, spotlessly clean and I cannot recommend Maxine highly enough. Nothing was too much trouble and questions were responded to really quickly! Such a cosy space in a really central location and I cannot wait for my next stay! Thank you so much!


I loved my stay here so much! Maxine was so accommodating and welcoming and really made my stay so comfortable. The apartment was really clean and tidy and felt like home straight away! I hope to come back one day definitely !

Maxine was a great host throughout. Good communication and easy check in/out. Amazing location in the area.
Our apartment was in a lovely location overlooking the promenade and sea. It was extremely well equiped and spotlessly clean, comfortable and warm. Maxine was extremely helpful with our requests and very accommodating to our needs. We would highly recommend Maxine as a genuinely friendly and helpful host. Thank you for a lovely stay and we hope to see you again when visiting Carrickfergus.

At Maxine's you can expect a wonderful welcome, a clean home, comfort. I feel I struck gold when I walked in to her Airbnb!


Maxine's house is fabulous. We came with three children aged between 11 and 3. There was plenty of room for us all and we felt at home straight away. Maxine was very quick to answer any questions and made us feel very comfortable. The house was perfectly situated for us right in the centre of Carrick. It had everything we needed and we were sorry to leave.


Maxine goes over and above with the personal touches and the flat is lovely with amazing views and a great location!


We had a wonderful comfy stay. The house is very cozy and close to all amenities and a large number of tourist spots. Very relaxing house to stay in. We will definitely be coming back in the future for another stay. I would highly recommend it to anyone.


I would highly recommend this place. It was very clean and comfortable with a nice friendly feel. It is also ideally located in order to explore the Antrim coast and the surrounding area. I would definitely stay here again.


Couldn't of asked for anything better, spotlessly clean got everything you need in flat everything at hand shops restaurants pubs , bus stop at your door and train station 5 mins from flat, the view was stunning definitely be back. Thanks Maxine for a Brilliant time and making us feel very welcome x


Myself and my young kids needed a home while we waited for our house refurb. I was nervous about booking somewhere but the apartment is lovely, clean, homely and safe - and what a great location! We loved it there! Maxine is only a phone call away and is always ready with a smile. Had absolutely no problems.


Amazingly cosy apartments with sea view. We have stayed here multiple times now and will come back for sure. Totally recommend staying here!!!


The apartment was welcoming, warm, spotless and perfectly equipped for self-catering: it really was a home from home. This doesn’t happen by chance: Maxine has put a lot of hard work into providing excellent accommodation, and thought carefully about what customers need. All my arrangements were last-minute, yet nothing was too much trouble for Maxine. The location’s great: shops, pubs and two large supermarkets nearby; Belfast a brief train ride away from either of two stations, both a short walk away; and handy for NI’s motorway network. And the view over Belfast Lough isn’t half bad either.

I highly recommend this apartment. Spotlessly clean and cosy, a home from home. Maxine was extremely friendly and helpful - she worked hard to accommodate our last minute booking, which was much appreciated. The location is good, a twenty minute drive to Belfast, or if you prefer there is a bus route with a stop just across the road. The apartment looks out onto the sea, and is located on the Causeway Coastal Route, which is a lovely scenic drive. If we ever need accommodation in N.I again we will be straight back to Ahoy 3. Many thanks to Maxine for a perfect stay.

TripAdvisor Review

The accommodations were spacious, clean and beautifully decorated. All basic essentials provided. Location in Carrickfergus perfect - view of the Lough and the Castle and walking distance from pubs and shops. Also great spot to tour Northern Ireland from. Most amazing in Carrickfergus are the people, warm, welcoming and eager to tell the history as they know it. Ownies pub had the best seafood chowder, the Dobbins Inn had the best fish and chips.

The house is well equipped and Maxine even brought in two dressing gowns for my elderly parents which was a lovely gesture. The rooms are beautifully decorated with a high attention to detail. The lounge with its views across Belfast Lough is such a lovely relaxing and comfortable room. The house is in a very good location on the seafront in Carrickfergus.

We stayed her over the Christmas period and it was decorated festively. It is clean and tidy with a great use of space and is everything the description in TripAdvisor says. The owner could not have been more helpful when we arrived and yet she was totally unobtrusive during our stay.

A lovely and well equipped apartment with great views. Well located in a pleasant town with easy access to rail and bus and with free convenient parking. We were surprised at how lovely and friendly Northern Ireland was and this was a great base for exploration.

TripAdvisor Reviewer

Beautiful apartment and very convenient to get into Belfast and the surrounding coastal routes. Maxine was the perfect host and told where the best eateries were and also the easiest transport into Belfast. Will definitely recommend to others.

The roomy apartment has everything that one could dream of - well-equipped kitchen, washer/dryer, wonderful shower, comfortable beds and lots of storage space. Maxine always goes the "extra mile" to make sure that we are well looked after and is prompt to attend to anything that we need. This is our third time here, several months each time, and we will definitely be back again.

Ahoy 2 overlooks Belfast Lough so there's always something to see. The apartment is very well equipped, very clean and comfortable and the owner was there to greet us, a lovely touch. Carrickfergus Castle is within walking distance and well worth a visit and Belfast and the Titanic Experience about a half hour drive away. Would highly recommend this accommodation.

TripAdvisor Reviewer

A terrific apartment with everything you need. Fabulous views across Belfast Lough. An altogether top-notch base for either working or touring in Northern Ireland. Maxine (the owner) was most helpful and supportive.

TripAdvisor Reviewer

We had a lovely week in this comfortable apartment. It is light, spacious, and airy with stunning views over the lough. Maxine has equipped the apartment to a very high standard, with an emphasis on comfort, and cleanliness. It is situated in an ideal place, convenient for town, and the castle, but quiet and relaxing. We look forward to returning.
